Developmental phases

November 9, 2014

There are certain phases of life that parents dread.

One is the barrage of “Why?” questions, about pretty much everything in life.

Another is the tattling of siblings on each other.

From what I have heard, it seems the why question seems to pop up around the age of three.  Reid started asked it quite frequently within the last month or so.  Sometimes he’ll get a “Why not?” back.  He is approaching the age of five, but that milestone seems to be more consistent with where he is at.

This morning, as the boys were eating breakfast, Reid complained that “Tate is looking at me”.

Again, one of those annoying little things, but it is nice to see and hear these typical developmental milestones, even though it may be a bit late.

Sometimes phases seem to last forever, but eventually they will pass.

I read something quite recently, you never know it will be the last time you do something – tuck in a child, pick up a child, throw him over your head, or get ready to send them off to school….. elementary, high school, or college.

Time is slipping quickly away.


A joke

January 8, 2013

This was shared in church on Sunday.  It’s clean, and funny about the obliviousness of some guys.

This guy was in a lot of trouble with his wife, and he wasn’t sure exactly what to do.

So, he went out and bought a new chainsaw, table saw, four wheeler, snow mobile, cross bow, iPad, and lots of other stuff.

His wife came home, opened the garage door, and saw all this stuff.

She lost it.  She told him, I don’t want to see you.  I don’t want to talk to you.  If I don’t see something in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in five seconds, I’m done.  I’m leaving.

In the morning, he wakes her up.  She said, I don’t want to talk to you.

He says I want to blindfold you so you don’t see the surprise.

He takes her down to the driveway, and takes off the blindfold.  It is a box about a foot square.  She opens the box, and finds a weigh scale.





The guy hasn’t been seen since.

Adventures with little ones

January 27, 2012

Tonight I gave Reid a bath.

He played with some toys for a few minutes.  After he was done, I got him out and dried him off.  We spent a couple of minutes chasing down a sippy cup.

While we were hunting, I ran a bath for Tate.  I wasn’t paying a great deal of attention to what Reid was doing, as I was just outside the bathroom door.  Suddenly, I saw him climbing over the bathtub and a big splash.  I grabbed him right away and dried him off.  Again.  Needless to day, he was not particularly impressed.

It was annoying and funny all at the same time.

He is an unpredictable boy, who gets into many things.  It will likely only gets worse as he gets older and more adventurous.
