The Helpful Parent

Tween Daughter:  I better get a good grade on this paper.

Me: What's it about?

Tween Daughter: It's a horror - mystery but there's no violence.

Me: So it's about your bedroom?

Best Commercial Ever

A while back Dave posted what he thought was the best commercial ever.  I meant to post my favorite of all time.  This ad by Nike came out in 1995 when my first daughter was born.  Still tugs at my heart.

Happy Birthday Bellamy!

Two years ago this evening, Bellamy Bliss Bender was born.  She's never liked sweet things, so we got her a Birthday Pretzel!

Another lost week-end

Part of me wishes that Sun was having their events somewhere other than Las Vegas.  My speaking engagements for today and tomorrow are both at 5 PM.  Allowing for travel and prep time I really can't do much else today...or tomorrow.  Same for last week-end traveling to Denver and a few weeks ago doing Sunday prep for the Mitel Show.  It's just a different feeling when you do these sorts of things away from home on the week-end.  At least it's still summer and the kids really have no concept of a week-end like they do during the school year.

Hello Summer!

The excitement of the childhood summer experience captured digitally.


 (Yes I know her "boo-boos" are showing, she'll have to deal with that later.  Like high school yearbook later.)

Flying Solo

 

My wife is taking my oldest daughter and her best friend to southern California for three days to visit the beach and a few amusement parks.  I'm still trying to figure out if it's what she wanted for her birthday or it's something my wife wanted her to want.  Normally when she goes out of town, I have the benefit of the kids being in school.  Seeing as they are already bored with summer vacation, this could be a long three days.  Baby is waking up, gotta run.
