You know what they say. Kids say the darndest things. As a parent, I am reminded of it daily. Like when Noah said, "Dad, I don't wanna swim anymore cause it makes my pooter get tiny!"

This is Beautiful You

Finally, my favorite post of the week! Every Saturday night or Sunday morning I take some of the photos that you have uploaded to the Facebook wall, and I post them here.

This is beautiful you. Which photos made you the happiest today?If you’d like to send in photos to be considered for a future “This is beautiful you” and other future blog posts, please post them on the Facebook wall (we need lots more!). Only upload photos that you don’t mind me...

Thanks. From a Single Dad.

The big things are only a small part of the reason I'm thankful this year. As I did last year, I've decided to *show* you some of the things I'm thankful for.

There’s this get-to-know you game I like to play. I invented on a date once. I call it “Any Word.”
