Bye Bye Mexico, Bye Bye Toys

Bye Bye Mexico, Bye Bye Toys

It’s hard to describe the feeling of reactive anger/loss that happens when you catch a neighborhood kid happily pulling Captain America out of a box of toys that you yourself put on the sidewalk *specifically* to give away for free. But there he was, with…

Will Road Trip For Citizenship

Will Road Trip For Citizenship

The title is a little misleading. We’ll road trip for other things as well, like choosing a place to have a baby, or you know, probably less heavy sorts of reasons. We needed to expedite Stella’s Mexican, as well as American citizenship (and passport) so…

This I Learned: Beach Days Are Productive Days. #TIL

This I Learned: Beach Days Are Productive Days. #TIL

We currently live less than a kilometer from a beautiful beach in Bucerias, Mexico. A half an hour away from Puerto Vallarta, where Stella was born. If you don’t live within a quick walk of a beach, the idea of not going to it regularly…

I’m Going To Draw For 100 Days. At Least. I Hope.

I’m Going To Draw For 100 Days. At Least. I Hope.

I heard somewhere that it takes 90 days to form a habit. I couldn’t remember where I heard this, so I searched for it. Turns out there are a lot of opinions on how long it takes to form a habit (or break one). 90…

The Sweet Sound Of Adults Talking

The Sweet Sound Of Adults Talking

Christine rolled up to the homestead with our friend Pam around 6:30AM on Saturday. They were road-weary and had been up for about 23 hours, but Christine was so happy to see her babies that other than a short nap, she treated the day like…

I DID THIS SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO: Activities Too Advanced To Be Fun

I DID THIS SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO: Activities Too Advanced To Be Fun

I admit I was a little desperate. Cole needed to get off the iPad and I needed to not be ordered to call play-by-play of his game like Bob Costas covering the Olympics. There had to be a fun way to indulge this obsession that…

The Great Supply Run Of ’14

The Great Supply Run Of ’14

Christine did a great job of outfitting us with food before leaving, but one week in, we were out of pizzas, juice and chocolate milk. That wasn’t going to fly with the Jedi padawan, so I had to leave the nest for the first time…

The Dad Wrap

The Dad Wrap

It takes me two weeks to fully adjust to new change. Ask Christine, she’ll tell you. We took a two week vacation in Hawaii before Cole was born, and I was a nightmare for the first week – things went completely great during week two,…
