Any time I need to go anywhere (bathroom, take trash outside to the bin, leave the room for any reason) I have to put BWF in his crib for safe keeping. It’s my new rule for his own safety and the integrity of physical objects in the house. Dude is too strong and too curious.[…]

RLF was good all morning. BWF needs supervision 48 hours a day. Or I need to figure out how to attach everything to the ceiling. Afternoon: RLF had a couple of screaming fits, but was mostly okay. She has created a character called “Miss Bella”, who is a school teacher. Miss Bella wears high heels,[…]


Rough day… Lots of “exploring” by BWF — which means he wouldn’t stop getting into stuff. There just aren’t enough high shelves and locking doors on/behind which to hide stuff; some things have to be left where he can get to them, and get to them he does. One difference between him and RLF at[…]

RLF did several cute things today. I can’t remember what they were. BWF can reach doorknobs now.

Morning: drove to Purser Family Park (since Stagecoach Road finally reopened after 11 months of closure, we can visit this park again; we’ve missed it). BWF had great fun — he said hello to a small dog, chased a bird, chased two bigger kids who acknowledged his presence, climbed, fell, and explored. RLF mostly walked[…]

Morning: MF took the kids to a local gymnastics business that “open gym” in the mornings two days a week, where kids who aren’t enrolled in classes can tumble and play on the equipment. BWF had plenty of fun, but RLF didn’t (and misbehaved) so she left early. Afternoon: Went to Walmart, bought Halloween costume[…]

RLF has reached the story-telling phase. Today, she told us uncountable stories, each a variation on others that she’s told. Almost all include an empty house, a giant, and a family. In one story, the house was “full of water”. At supper, she found a pamphlet from our local library and said it was a[…]

RLF: about 95% today (she had a nap, after three days of skipping), though she was a little sick (sniffling, coughing, sore throat) — which is to be expected after two kids’ birthday parties in two days. BWF: maybe 85% — one of his best days ever. Part of RLF’s improvement was, I think, due[…]

Rough morning. MRB went to another birthday party in afternoon, while I mowed/edged the back yard. RLF had some screaming fits in the evening/suppertime. She was calm by bedtime and (I think) went to sleep without too much trouble.

So… Happy birthday to me, right? I awoke at 04:30, one of the rare times that my wife’s alarm clock breaks through my deep sleep. I was almost back to sleep by 05:00, but BWF woke up and my wife had to leave for work. So I spent two hours trying to get him back[…]

Today is my wife’s birthday. She’s already enjoyed both gifts we bought for ourselves recently: the new blender and the FryDaddy. She’s more beautiful than ever before and will always be nine years younger than I am. :-) At breakfast, RLF got out of her chair and said she had to show me something. She[…]

BWF has been adding some new words: “Muh” for mug and “duh” for door, for example. He’s been making his other words more clear: “bye bye”, “this”, and others. He and RLF got into a couple of fights today, to the point where I heard her shouting: “Leave me alone, Benjamin!” from her room. He[…]

Morning: MRB Story Time. RLF made a turtle out of construction paper. Said it was a “turtle monster” and that it was for me. Afternoon: MF took BWF shopping. RLF was supposed to go to, but acted fussy as they drove off, so MF brought her back & she stayed at home with me. M&B[…]

1.55 inches of rain fell in a 30-minute period this afternoon, taking September from the driest month of the year to the fourth-wettest in one fell swoop. It was the most rain in one day since May 8 and the second-rainiest day of the year. Library & lunch downtown. RLF got a new Thomas book[…]

Played outside a bit in the morning. For once, BWF was the reason we came inside (usually it’s his sister). Inside, both were good most of the day. I played hide-n-seek with RLF indoors — she’s finally able to count aloud to 10. (She’s been able to count to 10 for a LONG time, but[…]

RLF reiterated her request to have her birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese’s, so my wife will check into prices and scheduling. Both kids were mostly good most of the day. Major exception: RLF had nearly an hour’s crying fit right after MF came home. Second major exception: RLF didn’t eat supper (and then after[…]

RnB’s first time at Chuck E. Cheese’s — for a neighbor boy’s birthday party. I almost turned the car around on the way and came back due to disrespect coming from the back seat, but they calmed down and had a great time. We were there almost two hours. BWF ate half a slice of[…]

My wife said to me in an early morning text message: “You were talking in your sleep on and off for over an hour. At one point, B was in our room and he said ‘Hi’ and you said ‘Hi’ back while still asleep.” I wish I could remember what I was dreaming about. We[…]
