Because having one just wasn't enough

You failed

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 00:09:29 +0000

You played in your third little league game today. In your previous two games, you struck out and then grounded out in your only at-bats. But progress was there and the coaches (of which I am one) have noticed how hard you have been working since the start of the season. Back when you couldn’t [...]

Bath Time

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 17:43:19 +0000

“Girly, your doggie is dirty. He needs a bath.” I say gently as you grasp your favorite stuffed animal – the only animal that has claimed the #1 spot in your heart for almost your entire life. You look at the animal with uncertainty in your eyes and then you look up at me with [...]

Home is where the heart is

Wed, 21 Aug 2013 05:43:09 +0000

This is the last night in the only house I’ve ever owned. As I sit here in the familiar silence of the evening, amongst boxes stacked high to the ceiling, I try to push the conflicting emotions from my mind as I wait for the aching in my muscles to give way to the fatigue [...]

One more way that I’ve become my mother

Sat, 18 May 2013 15:44:28 +0000

As a child, I used to sit outside of my mother’s closed bathroom door as she did whatever bathroomly stuff that mothers did and read to her from my latest issue of Sports Illustrated. I’d recite stats from the previous night’s baseball game and tell her about the latest musician that I liked. And I [...]

Third Time’s a Charm

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 21:58:54 +0000

Girly, You are 22 months old and I want you to know that in spite of all that has happened in my life during that time, I thank God that you are here to bless my life. In the past several months, you have transformed from a baby to a full-fledged toddler. You are communicating [...]

It’s a man’s world but don’t just live in it

Sat, 06 Apr 2013 21:47:46 +0000

To my girls… Someday, you won’t be little girls with ribbons in your hair and stains from Crayola markers adorning your hands. Someday, you will be all grown up and finding your place in this big, yet small, world. This is what I hope for you… Despite much change, it’s still a man’s world when [...]

You shine too bright to be in the shadows

Fri, 15 Mar 2013 05:18:10 +0000

Swee’Pea, We had your parent-teacher conference yesterday. In it, your teacher told us of your fantastic reading skills (4th grade level) and your burgeoning math skills and how well you are doing in your classes. She showed us your reading scores and your math scores and we went over areas that we could help you [...]

Smart is as Smart does

Thu, 14 Mar 2013 05:34:04 +0000

Monkey, We met with your teacher today. I have come to enjoy these conferences as it allows me to bask in the glory of TheMonk. We’ve been doing this for three years now and every conference comes down to this… You are an incredibly smart little boy. As your teachers go over test scores and [...]

Daddy’s Fables

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 04:43:16 +0000

The twins asked for a bedtime story tonight. Not a book but a story. As I tucked them into bed, my mind raced to form a story. Something funny? Something with Princesses and slimy creatures? Or perhaps something with a little bit of wisdom attached to it. This is what I told them… Once upon [...]

Breaking the rules

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 01:41:01 +0000

You were frustrated. Your vocabulary, while expanding rapidly, was inadequate to express your feelings – so you lashed out at me and hit me in the face. You knew you were wrong. I could see it in your eyes as I told you “No! We don’t hit. And then I added something I haven’t had [...]
