The thoughts and theories of a guy who basically should have gone to bed hours ago.

I know, I know - what's the point? But look at it this way - I stayed up late writing it, but you're reading it...

Let's call ourselves even & move on, OK?

Happy Birthday, Avery!

My oldest son, Avery, is five years old today. He's been so excited for his birthday to arrive, and then this morning he woke up with a fever of 104. I felt horrible at the beginning of the day, but then you realize the thing with kids - he was just as happy spending the day watching TV with his mom & brother as he was going to school, going to dinner, etc. All we needed in the end was a birthday candle, a scoop of mint-chip ice cream from Dairy Queen, and a cool birthday present from his brother, Brandon. Instant birthday joy.

It also occurs to me that this day marks the five-year anniversary of my being a dad. I will resist the urge to wax philisophical, except to say this: I'm convinced I've got the best kids in the world. I'm also convinced that as long as I continue to believe that, and treat them as though I believe it, I will ultimately prove myself right.

Happy 5th, Avery. It's been a great ride. Somehow, though, I get the sense that the next five years will make it pale in comparsion...

  • Happy Birthday Avery!

    I hope you are feeling better.

    (Chocolate chip mint is MY favorite ice cream too!)

  • Starbucks Javachip all the way, kiddo. I'll sneak you some next time I'm over when your mommy isn't looking.

    Note to Brandon: thanks for showing me what my Atari 2600 joysticks were reincarnated as.

  • If you bring Starbucks into the house & mommy finds out, she'll be mad you didn't bring her any. Better bring two...

  • Have you ever had Starbucks Javachip? Be prepared to peel Mommy off the ceiling.
