Houston, We Have "Dada"

She said it. Yep. She definitely said it.

My wife brought six-month-old daughter into our bed the other morning. She rolled over, looked at me, and said,


Wait for it....


A bit of overkill but, hey, that's OK. She's got it.

Now, we're working on "anthropomorphism". :-)

Page 123

This is an interesting little meme that Flea sent me the other day.

Here are the instructions:

1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

So, you'll never guess it but, here goes...

"After working through my initial disinclination, I discovered that Atlanta was exactly where I was supposed to be. I was somewhat indisposed to moving, but I wasn't rebellious. Rebellion tells God that we refuse to do what He wants us to do."

I know, it's riveting, right? Can't wait for the sequel.

I'm actually supposed to tag 5 people right now, but the six-month-old is wailing and they four-year-old is making fun of the eleven-year-old.

If anyone needs me I'll be in the back yard for four or five months.

Busy as a Beaver

My four-year-old daughter apparently watched a T.V. show about beavers yesterday.

I know this because, when I came home from work, she had made a "beaver house" out of pillows, blankets, and chairs in the middle of the family room.

In a famous quote that will be repeated for years to come, I walked in the door and my daughter said to me,

"Daddy, come and see my dam beaver house!"


P.S. - If you're in the mood for a tear-jerker and you have a little girl, go get the "This Moment" CD by Steven Curtis Chapman.

I'm a pretty macho guy but I just cannot listen to "Cinderella" without choking up.

It would make a great Valentine's Day gift for YOUR SuperDad.
