Now that the scouts allow girls to join, my oldest decided to join up with a couple of her friends (most of her friends are boys). I never did scouts, so it’s all new to me. Today I missed the Rallycross, because we have the rain gutter boat regatta this afternoon. Should be fun! :)
My wife has mercifully taken on the job of putting the poly on the new kitchen cabinets I built. This is excellent, because I HAAAAAAAAATE wood finishing/painting. I decided to take my daughters out today for a day out with Daddy, to give my wife the house to herself while she worked.
Joke’s on you, I never knew my dad.
That’s how my 5-year old described this movie, when she asked me to put it in. I can niether confirm nor deny this description, as I went back to poking holes in my kitchen walls to run electrical wiring, but it made me smile.
Got these solid engine mounts from a buddy of mine that were rusty but trusty. The first picture was after lots and lots of wire wheel activity. My daughter decided she wanted to get dirty with a wire brush and scotch brite, so this happened.
This is what I accomplished today. The one on the left took about 30 minutes to assemble, mostly because I was eating lunch and screwing around while doing it.
My buddy came over, and we did a bunch of work on our racetrack camper. While the weather was nice, I decided to swap my spring-fall wheels on. Oh man, that 1/2" battery powered impact gun is a game changer! My 5-year old put the center caps on for me, with minimal help. I hate doing that job, so that was a dollar…
When I got home from work today, the girls wanted to go outside and play. I happily obliged, as it has been a crazy week in he salt mines. My oldest got this “Power Wheels” for Christmas from my dad last year, but has always been scared of driving it. As usual, when she got to the end of the driveway, she freaked out…
The little one was upset that she couldn’t go with her mom and big sister to kindergarten prep class tonight. I picked her up to calm her down, gave her a few options. She was crying and freaking out a bit. I concluded she must need to go to bed.
My 5-year old figured out how hopelessly ticklish I am. This does not bode well for me.
Today was a monumental day. It was my daughters’ last day of daycare. My wife’s office is closed tomorrow, and I’ll be watching the girls next week while my wife finishes her last week at work. After that, mama is staying home with the girls. She’ll still do some freelance work from home (she’s a graphic designer),…
My little one slipped this into my shirt pocket this morning, while I was changing her diaper. I just found it .... nearly six hours later :)
When my wife and I had her first child, I was smack in the midst of a district wide pay-freeze that put a hurting on the family finances. We discussed my wife staying home, and we could’ve made it work if we had to, but we would’ve been BROOOOOOOOOOKE.
My 2-year old handed me her notebook and pencil yesterday, and asked me in her toddlerese to draw an apple. So I did. Then she asked me to draw another apple. I refused, and drew my truck. She was OK with that.
On Amazon Prime Day my wife found a good deal on a metal “Geodome Play Central Command Operation Lawn Freedom Base Station” or something like that. Normally selling around $170, it was on sale that day and both kids’ birthdays are just a few weeks out. Through some glitch (we believe) it took the discount twice (or…
8 cars for 3 boys....
Today I told the 4-year old no we can’t watch her show again. I turned on the new Roadkill. My 2-year old is fascinated. The 4-year old is busily playing with her new screwdriver at the dinning room table. I’m doing my part to make Jalops out of these girls.
I scored this princess coupe for free but I don’t have a daughter yet but I might someday so I decided to give this one some attention..
With all the other cars being slammed, now we need something to take offroad.
