Last night while slinging drinks and waiting tables at my second job (daycare is expensive!) I witnessed a trash bag of a human being slap her three-year-old daughter in the face for not eating a French fry. Continue reading “French Fries & Face Slaps!”
To my sweet little girl pie,
Today we are celebrating your first birthday. An entire year has passed since you came into our lives. It seems like only yesterday the nurse handed me a teeny tiny baby girl and then promptly left the two of us in a room, with no adult supervision! Continue reading “1 Year Old!!!”
Upstate Addie takes on downstate NY!! Or at least an underground parking garage, a beautiful apartment, and a wood fired pizza place. Continue reading “Upstate Addie takes on NYC!”
Not immediately, but not three months either. Let’s call that a win and move forward, shall we? We shall. Addison turned six months old this month and has changed, and grown, and learned so much that I’m constantly left in disbelief. Every little thing she does amazes me, even though she can’t wipe her own butt, Continue reading “Missed. Loved. Learned.”
Three months?!? I haven’t posted anything on this page in three whole months! Lazy! The exclamation points are probably unnecessary as it doesn’t come as a shock to me (or likely any other parent) that I’ve been unsuccessful in my few attempts to find the time to write here. The little bit of free time I’ve had over the last few months has been consumed with getting ready for the holidays, napping, and planning out activities during any and all future free time. Sure, I’ve still found enough free time to binge watch Netflix regularly…going forward I’m going to make a real effort to spend less time in front of the TV and more time reading and writing. Until the month before the final season of Game of Thrones is scheduled to air, at which point it’ll obviously be time to re-watch all previous seasons for the third time. My wife is a lucky gal. I’ll have to remind her of that tonight.
What’s been happening in the last three months? So much. Continue reading “Screaming Mandrakes and Dying Elves.”
Last week I was afforded the opportunity to sit down and listen to a panel of millennial and perennial women leaders have a discussion moderated by New York State’s Lieutenant Governor, Kathy Hochul. Continue reading “A Real Man (because of a little girl)”
This morning we met the staff at the daycare who will be taking care of Addison once she starts in a few short weeks. I thought for sure Kate would burst out crying as soon as we walked into the building Continue reading “Daycare, FOMO, and hangovers.”
Last night was our baby’s first night in her crib, in her own room. (Side note: Her name is Addison, or Addie, or Fattison, or Fatty Addie. I realized in reading previous posts I can only refer to her as ‘baby’ or ‘baby girl’ so many times before it becomes annoying. I’m sure I already exceeded however many times that is.)
Where was I?
“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.”

It’s truly mind blowing how fast time flies when you’re changing diapers. Continue reading ““Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.””
