What did you say?

I realized something the other night and I didn't get it on video to prove my point but it finally hit me that I do not want my sweet little Princess C3 to get any older.  I want her to stay 3 yrs old forever.  I'm am sure there are many reasons this thought is running through my mind but it was just the other night I figured it out and it was for this very reason.

(disclaimer- C3 if you ever read this, I am not making fun of you- I promise)

You can ask anyone, right now at her age she is sometimes hard to understand and she talks very fast alot of the times.  T and I were talking to her the other night and we were focusing on a certain word....WEEZY (character from toy story).  She tried over and over to say it and get the Z out, but it just didn't work.

We started laughing and she finally got it right, for the moment. 

It was at that point and time that I put my hand on her head, looked at her and said "Please don't grow up and stay this age forever".  Yeah I know I am a sweet and caring daddy right.


I looked at T and said "Can you imagine all the shit she is gonna say to me when she is older and spitting out words galore and we can understand her?"  She is gonna let me have it I know she is.  Right now all she does is stick her tongue out and give me looks T passed down to her, mean, nasty looks that burns holes in your skin worse than cigarettes.  Looks that say F-YOU daddy, why don't you go sleep outside when I dont' use my inside voice?  Looks that say Screw You Daddy, I will brush my teeth when I want to.  Looks that say HA HA, I will jump on my bed, your bed and my brothers bed and there is nothing you can do about it.

What does sticking the tongue out mean anyways?  I mean that shit doesn't hurt me. It doesn't bother me.  All I really have to do is grab that little pink tongue one time and yank on it and she wont ever do it again.

So is my sweet little princess going to get older and say sweet things to me or is she going to finally get out the words she has been trying to but couldn't?

Cant wait.  Maybe this is the reason parents say they never want their kids to grow up.  We don't want to hear them say the shit that is really on their minds.

Great, so now I have to think

(Thinking to self)
Really, I wonder if she means that?  She never says shit, to just say shit. She always speaks her mind. Was she just trying to be funny?  Does that mean she wants to have Pants Off Dance Off?  I wonder if I could even do that?  Am I too old?  Am I a strong enough person to do that? 

Those are just some of the thoughts that have been running through my mind since T made a comment to me on Friday while we were at the fair.  She made a quick comment, and with that instant, my mind went on auto pilot and for days now that comment has been filling up my empty brain making me wonder if I could really do that.

We haven't really talked about it too much, she knows it peaked my interest and got me thinking.  I am nervous and I don't even know if I am going to do this thing yet.  But now I am questioning my man hood and my inner strength and wondering if I could really out this together. 

Will doing this benefit my family?  Maybe not at first, but down the road it may.  Would it benefit me?  Again, probably not at first, but later on it would.  I think it would add on to the role model characteristics that I have as a father.  I mean I know I am a good daddy to the kids but doing this would show them it is easy to give of yourself to help others. 

T, now I know she would have mixed emotions about it.  She would be scared for all of us at first and I'm sure for a long time, but she would be proud and have my back no matter what.  She would probably not like some of the certain things about it, but she would be rewarded with some of the other aspects of this decision. 

This would be the hardest decision I have made in my married, parental life.  So what I need to do is get my head together and think about it. Do I really want to do this, or is it just some new phase that hit me in my late 30's?  Can I do it?  The biggest thing is putting T and the C's in harms way.  This weekend I am going to get my game plan together and knock out some questions and sit with T and ask her for her honest opinion, which will probably hurt my feeling, since I am a sensitive bitch* and all.  I may cry, (see *), I may just say fuck it and give up before I start (see *) who knows.  I am also going to ask the kids.  They are old enough to give me a straight answer.

I have done some reading and checking on the subject and I know if I get past the first part of agreeing with T, that I will have alot more to check into and learn. But that is part of it.  Being smarter, smart enough to know what I am getting into.  Learning and figuring out if I can do it by learning more about it. 

I know I will have the haters and doubters out there, if I decide to do this and to them I say in advance Fuck you, who cares what you think.  I curse alot, so what.  I am past the point of caring what people think anymore.  I used to care (too much) what people think and tip toe around shit and want everyone happy.  NO MORE.  ME, T, and 4 C's.  That is my concern of happiness. If they give me the go ahead to change my life then I am going for it.  If they don't want me to take this new path, then I know it is for the best.

I am not going to be one of those people who sit and ask God to make my decision for me. That's not me.  I believe in God, but I do believe that I, me and only me can make the decision about what to do with my life and there are only 5 people that will influence my decision.

So this weekend after I talk to T and the C's, I will decide if I am going to take on a new challenge.

A little more Fair and Im Easy Like Sunday Morning

Here is the last couple video's from the fair

C2 and C3 Ridin' Pony's
C's on the Tea Cups

Ok, now that all the fair shit is out of the way.  Time to get down to business.

Sunday was such a damn good day.

But even with Sunday being a great day, I was faced with some tough inner battles.  I had to make some choices that might make others buckle at the knees and cry like a bitch.  These are only the decisions that the strong can make, the only thing here for the weak is the coffee.

As the clock got closer to 1 pm on Sunday, I could feel the chill in my bones.  The sweat dripping down my forehead.  I could feel a tingle in my balls.  The leaves were falling from the trees.  The air was cool.  The house was still.  All signs pointing to it being close to
It is only week 3 in the NFL and it was already a HUGE game between the Falcons and the hated Super Bowl Champions New Orleans Saints.  The only team that stood in our way, the only team blocking us from winning the NFC South.
I could feel it was our (yes OUR, my team) time to beat the Saints, even in their house.  No Reggie Bush, No Darren Sharper, our defense was better this year, we have two stud running backs in Turner and Snelling and we have a solid qb in Matt Ryan.
It was that time, time to cover myself in the #2 Matt Ryan jersey, and face the lid backward on the noggin.  Black shorts on. All systems a go for a great Sunday battle.

Rewind to Friday.  A certain someone who I won't mention, oh well Triple 0007, started talking shit on Friday about how the Aint's would beat my Falcons.  I talked shit about how Dallas would beat his Texans. Back and forth we went.  The lines were drawn in the sand.  Bets were made.  My kids, for his kids.  Wife swap and kids swap.  He would get diaper detail and I would get the last laugh.

Fast forward to Sunday.  Fourth Quarter of the game. A game that would feature a lot of big plays, big hits and fights between two teams that hate one another. With T by my side and C4 jumping at every scream I screamed, we watched and cheered as the good guys (my team) were up 3. And his other team the Texans were getting BLASTED by Dallas.

I reach my hand in my pocket, to rub my balls.  I reach my other hand in my other pocket to grab my phone.  (in my mind) Yeah call Triple 0007, yeah call him and talk shit about his sorry teams getting waxed. Yeah rub that shit in...My fingers on the phone gripping it tight, looking at it and preparing myself to dial the Texas number. 

Wait, I start hearing something.  A voice speaking to me softly in my ear. The voice was in the soft sweet tone of Kim Kardashian (know jock sniffer) telling me "Don't call, if you do and talk shit, your team may lose and how will you feel then?"  My head tilts and I think to myself, "She's right!!"  I cant do it.  I cant call my Texas brother and strike a death blow just yet. I must wait.

So....I wait.   And Wait.
And let me tell you something, It is a damn good thing I waited too.  The F-ing Falcons about gave me a heart attack, made me look nuts in front of T and C4, screaming and yelling about giving up a field goal to tie it and send it to OT. Then the Falcons getting the ball first and throwing a f-ing bomb to an open receiver who arms stopped at his wrists. bastard had no hands and should have had the catch.

Then holy shit, the Saints go marching in (pun) and line up for a chip shot field goal.  I am going ape shit now, we have lost the fucking game, great we had it and now we have...
OH MY GOD, HOLY SHIT, HE MISSED IT.  I am shitting my shorts now and C4 is looking at me like who the hell is this man. T is laughing at me saying "See, you gotta have, negative asshole"

Wow, then just like we did all game long, we ran, we ran some more and we ran ever more. We ran like Forst Gump looking for Jenny. Got the ball down close enough to nail a 46 yarder.  The field goal to win the game.

At this point I was to excited to call my enemy and hammer him with negative statements about his sorry ass teams.
So Kim Kardashian really helped me out on Sunday by talking me out of calling Triple 0007 and talking shit. 

And every one knows that is the reason the Falcons won the game.

When you talk shit before the game is over, your team will lose.

This weekend is another weekend Triple 0007.

Wee-Kend Fun......The Fair was Gangsta's realio shawty

So much for Redneck Fest 20-10.  The North Ga. State Fair, actually turned out to be alot more than just a bunch of county hicks and chicks in cut off with their ass hanging out.  Wasn't alot of the jeans with circles in the back pocket or old Mountain Dew bottles being used as spit catchers.

The fair actually seemed a bit more thuggish this year.  And maybe I am saying that because of the ANGRY mob of people that got chased by all the police officers.  The same mob of people that were pushing and shoving and storming the paved walkway and the same angry mob that had everyone else scattering like roaches to take cover and protect themselves and children.  Maybe it was the mob that was yelling, screaming and chanting shit like they were at a damn riot.  Yeah it was like a riot.  I am guessing that is why it was a little more thuggish this year.  We have been going for years and nothing has ever happened like that.

But, we...Me and T and the C's and some other through it and finished off the night having a good time.  We were nervous, but had fun and the kids had a good time riding rides.  T's cousin McKenzie and her kids hung with us and we shut the fair down at midnight.

Overall the fair was fun, lots of pics, fun with some family and stories to tell.

C3 with cousin Stephanie on the Bull.  C3 was asking about Stephanie all day and has now found a new person to stalk. She hung with Stephanie till she left

Fridays Final Thoughts 9-24-10.....Gonna be a Redneck

This Daddy's Blog


Before I get into the FFT, wanted to let you know that T has up the blog for our
2010 Disney World Vacation
or try this

Ok, so tonight I am going to get into my redneck mode for a bit.  Now I wont be wearing a cowboy hat (I look stupid) or boots (never) and no tight jeans with a circle in the back pocket (makes my balls hurt).  I wont have my spit cup (nasty) or my Marlboro (never) hangin', I am going to the


Yeeeeee Hawwwwww.  The fair is actually cool, we have been going for years, the kids love it.  We love it.  They have rides and good food and good music to listen to while you walk around.  How can you not love fair food.  Corn on the Cob, flavored at that, thin potato sliced fries, funnel cake and all kinds of fried shit. (Ok not really fried shit) 

They have a clown in a dunk tank that talks mad shit about you and he is so funny.  I have dunked him every year that we have gone, cant talk to to the lefty. (yeah me) I think I am going to ride the bull again this year.  Shit 2 years ago, I lasted like 5 seconds.  They whip you in that things and you go flying off.  The kids loved watching me fly off the bull.

The kids Uncle Nolen and Aunt Bing Bing have been taking everyone for years and that is very nice. Shit is usually the only time we see the rest of that side of the family. And it is for a few minutes, you catch up, laugh, go our separate ways and then talk shit about the family we just saw.

Oh damn, how can I forget another great thing about the fair.  People Watching!!!  Holy Cowshit, you haven't seen anything till you get all types of folks together at the fair.  It just reminds me that folks out of the redneck, but you cant take the redneck out the folk.

Really though, the best part of the fair is that the C's love it.  They love the petting zoo area, they love seeing the prize winning bull, they just look forward going and that is enough for me.  So even if it is for one night, I will become the biggest redneck in the world so I can see the C's smile.

On to the portion where I talk shit about my wife.  Last night I almost lost my shit. (shit seems to be the word of the day here) Why is it that I, me and only me can not get C4 to brush his teeth without him throwing a fucking fit.  He runs into the bathroom and as soon as I hand him his toothbrush his legs buckle and he tries to leave. Screaming and crying.  So last night I go into the bedroom where T is and ask her "How do you brush his teeth? Show me please" She can tell Im frustrated, so what does she do?  Being the most awesome wife....She starts fucking laughing at me!!! Yes, laughing at me!!!! At this point I am more pissed that she is laughing at me.  I tell her "Good, you think its funny, you brush his fucking teeth" So what does she do then???? She laughs MORE.
And then she gets him in the bathroom and brushes his teeth with no problem


She is lucky I still love her more than the world or she would have gotten a nice surprise in the middle of the night.

Ok now for the football picks for the weekend
Last week I was 6-1 for the blog and on the money sheet here at work I was

Will you stop doing this shit????????

I have something that drives me insane at the house.  While I am only home a few hours before the kids go to sleep, this shit still drives me nuts.  T has to deal with it all day and I swear I would get a f-ing chainsaw and dismantle everything we own if I was home all day like her.

"Im going to cut the f-ing legs off the table in a minute"  That is what I said to T last night

I am talking about my almost 16 month old C4, the child that will find anything in the house to climb on.  ANYTHING.  I can't handle this shit.  Son, when you read this later in life, know this, you have climbed on everything in the f-ing house.  If someone is in your way, you try to move them so you can climb. I get you and put you back on the FLOOR.  You cry, then you get back to climbing.  You wait till we are not looking and then you climb.

Son, you have fallen off of shit and hit your head, you have hurt yourself time and time again.  I try to tell myself that boys will be boys and you are going to climb and what happens....happens....But damn son, every 5 minutes I am getting you off of the table, the chair, the whatever the heel you climbed up on.

Look, I know I am bitching about something that alot of kids do, but T and I are sick and tired of this shit.  Last night I got him off the table and put him on top of the fridge, the entertainment center and he didn't like it.  Will it stop him from climbing NO!  Shit if falling won't stop him, I dont think anything will.  I told T last night I wanted to put a weight vest on him.  Shit maybe velcro shoes?????????

I am punching myself in the face and drop kicking myself in the nuts over this.

Now pretend these next captions are what little C4
is thinking in his head
Ok, if I get this chair out a little I can climb up on it

Ok, good chair is out, now time to start
climbing, put my hand here and foot down here

Ok, made it.  Now I need to check out the scene
and make sure the coast is clear

Look, I see the other kids have something
I want. Im getting on this table

Look, this is so easy.
Hey, MaMa.
No wait, I have to be like a ninja spy, slow and quiet

Look, I made it.  On the dining room table.
Man, no one can stop me.
Oh shit, here comes DaDa, damn it he is
going to get me off of here again and I am going to pitch a f-ing fit and scream and cry till
I find something else to climb on.

Yeah, look there is the kitchen table and some chairs,
I will climb on that again

Is this in our future?

When all else fails, just laugh

So last night was a pretty uneventful night in This Daddy's house. (really its T's house, it just rent the space)  The only thing that went down was C4 taking the toilet paper for a spin last night and leaving a trail from the bathroom to the kitchen.  It was funny as shit (get it toilet paper and shit) but got no pic's or video proof.  So I will provide you some comedy relief today....Enjoy

Truths For Mature Humans

I was sent this list in an email from a buddy of mine in Texas, I was laughing so hard at some of them.  I added my own little comments to each of them.  Read and have fun and laugh a little.  (If you want the entire list email me and I will forward it to you)

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.
Ok, so now I need to find a best friend (other than T)
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
Damn it, this happens to me all the time

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
Not really, I don't like to nap

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.
Yes. And also for shooting the bird

5. How are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
I don't try, I roll it in a ball

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
And sometimes it is still wrong!

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
Yeah, maybe, not sure

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
Never tired during the PO-DO

10. Bad decisions make good stories.
All the time!

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
It hits everyday

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.
Classic, I love this

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
Its a method to F with your head

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
Shit, I always look good, it doesn't matter

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.
For sure

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
I think our freezer has one

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
Shit, those damn goggles get you every time

20. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
OR played the Too Short song "The Ghetto" when you drive through it

22. I would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
Hear that T, load up the bags

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
Not anymore in GawGa, its against the law to drive and text

25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?
I just walk away instead

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!
I do this everyday

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.
I wear the same shorts every day of the week

31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
Am I really that stupid, since I do this too

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time !
Except this morning at 6 am, when I hit a button and my phone called the last number to call me.
Sorry Triple 0007, I hope the 5 am call didn't wake you, I noticed it rang for 5 seconds on my end.

Can I learn from Kate being a Bitch

Being the awesome, great, handsome, sweet, caring, smooth love making, good looking baby making husband that I am, I do alot of things for T, that alot of husbands might not do.  I'm not going to get into that right now, what I am going to do is tell my wonderful wife that I am no longer going to be doing one of the things I do with her.

I will say it, I watch Kate plus 8 with T.  But NO MORE.  Last night after the Monday night football game, that T sat through with me, she pulled up the playlist on the dvr and played Kate plus 8.  We have watched this show since it WAS Jon and Kate plus 8.

We let me just say this and I think Kate is an even bigger BITCH than she ever was before.  I mean if you watch that damn show, she is a bitch to her kids, to the public and she doesn't even think twice about it. I mean last night (and every episode) she is telling her kids to move, sit, shhhhh, quiet, yelling at them, asking them a question and then telling them to not talk.  I have never been in the public eye, or had a show and I have never been divorced before, but since when does that give a mother a license to be a huge bitch.

Go back in time, Kate has always been somewhat of a foul person.  But it was always directed toward Jon.  Well now that they have gone separate ways, she is treating her kids the way she treated Jon.  T and I were talking about this last night and we agreed that we liked her before when she was married and miserable.  Now she is single and miserable.  You can tell, you can see it.

Now tv shows put a different spin on things for sure, but this is not acting, this is her being her.  My opinion is that after the divorce, she got all her goods (boobs) taken care of and now she wants to flaunt it.  Ok and fine, you want to look good, I get it.  Does that mean you have to look like a skank.  She really does.  A mother of 8, does not need to take her kids to school in a mini bus, with stripper heels and low cut shirts and skirts.  Is she trying to get a hook up with the Principle at the school. Shit man really.  She was better looking before, now she looks like a call girl.

A point I am trying to make is that, this woman is taking out her negative shit out on her kids.  Why in the world do you treat strangers nicer than your kids?  Why do you say "excuse me" to strangers but you tell your kids to move?  Try to listen to yourself next time you are out in public and see how you talk to your kids and how you talk to others.  Kate has lost all sense of what she is trying to do.  She said before that the show is a great way for her kids to experience life in ways they couldn't before.  Yeah Kate, now your kids get to see you acting like a filthy ass **** and how you have become so self absorbed in yourself.

While I agree that Jon is an asshole, Kate has turned into the biggest **** that there is.

Now that I am thinking about it, maybe I need to watch the show, you know so I can have a reminder for myself that I can't act like such a dick towards my kids.  I mean I was so pissed watching that show last night because I wanted to tell her she is a bitch.  I mean I act like a dick alot towards my kids and I usually hate myself for it afterwards.  I just need to slow down and think. Sometimes the frustration of working too many long hours and the little things that piss me off get taken out on the C's.  Sometimes I forget that the C's are kids and just because I think they are smarter than their age doesn't mean they won't make mistakes and do crazy things.  I do love that my C's know when I am acting like a asshole and they point it out to me.  I have to stay focused on the task at hand and try to be a good daddy and let my kids see that I love them and I am trying to teach them. 

Ok, so next week, I may be sitting in bed watching the same shit over and cursing Kate out all over again, but for now I am standing firm.

Wee-Kend Fun......I love you Smore

Damn it, another weekend came and went.  Just like that, from Friday to this morning it was over. POOF.

Friday after I washed my car and left the office, I popped in the cd with some Paul McCartney and Wings on it and jammed all the way to D-Ville and met T, the kids and T's mom. She took us out for dinner and that was nice, the kids enjoyed seeing her and telling her about the Disney trip.

I stopped on the way home and got a movie for T and I to watch.  "The Bounty Hunter" with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Anniston.  This was kind of a date night movie and I was glad that T actually made it through the whole movie.  She never makes it the whole way, but she did.  I am trying to find the "Babies" documentary, she is really wanting to see it.  I don't want to buy it, just in case it is shit.

Saturday, we had a fun project for the kids.  While in Disney, our resort had some cool rocks that were laid all over the place. Very nice smooth and oval rocks.  So I decided to bring 5 rocks home.  Small to x-tra large.  1 for all the kids and 1 for the family.  So T got some paints and we painted our rocks

So our rocks turned out good and T is going to put the kids names on them.  They loved painting them and had a good time.

Later that night I got a pit fire going and we did made some smores.  I think the kids would like it just as much if we sat around the fire and gave them chocolate and marshmallows to eat. Next time we are going to be in the driveway doing this so we can at least see all of the bugs that are attacking us.
Chillin' in the backyard around the pit

Yesterday we took the kids to a pool party and just like always they loved swimming and I did the grilling and made some great burgers and dogs.
It was a great weekend and I ended it by watching the Falcons game that I dvr'd.  The Falcons kicked that ass and even though the Cardinals sucked, A W is a W.  I will take it.

Looking back on Fridays post, I picked 4 college games against the point spread and
I picked all 4 correctly.

Texas covered the 3 at TxTech.
FSU, beat BYU by the 9.5
Alabama had no problem covering against Duke
And GawGa lost to Arkansas straight up.

In the Pro's
Yes, I picked Atlanta and they covered the 7
The Packers beat the shit out of Buffalo
I lost the Patriots-Jets game as the Jets won

So I went 6-1, you would have made money with me this weekend.

I did manage to get my ass kicked in the Blogger Fantasy Football League.
Oh well.

Fridays Final Thoughts 9-17-10....Making my kids cry

This Daddy's Blog


Back and better than ever.
I took a few weeks off with vacation and all and then doing the vacation posts, but now it is time to get back into it and give you what you want.

You know you want it, you can't say no.

Ok, so for the few of you that asked for the C4 DaDa comments to be on video, it is coming.  It is a work in progress.

I can't be the only Daddy that tortures his kids, can I?  I didn't think so!

So last night the kids wanted to get a little crazy and start messing with the old man here.  Wanted to rough it up a little bit and play chase and catch me if you can.  No problem, This Daddy can still move, I may be old, but I am not dead,  I took on all 4 C's.  They would chase me and then I would chase them.  C1 knocked himself out of the battle first by throwing something, hitting a picture frame on the wall, knowing he did wrong and then pretty much crying.  T then looked at me and said "ok, 1 is crying can you go for 2?"  I am not one to back down from a challenge so with that, I got to chasing C2 and then out of the blue, he started crying!  T chimes in "That's 2 down and 2 to go"
Then it was time to take down the loudest of the crew.  C3.  This was tough, she was not going to shed a tear easily, so I had to chase her around and finally got her and tickled her to tears.  "Ok, that's 3" T fires out of her beautiful mouth while laughing. 
Well C4 is too tough for me, so it all ended there and the kids waited for the brownies T made.

I have to put it out there and tell T I am sorry for my NON-Actions this week.  I always say that T works so hard during the day and anyone who is smarter than a brick knows that taking care of 4 kids, homeschooling, cooking all the meals and cleaning the house is not easy.....It really is a job.  She works at home.
Well this week, I have not been putting in my 15 minutes a night helping out.  Dishes, cleaning, laundry and just whatever needs to be done.

Ok, I have to tell everyone that my man crush on Ben Affleck is back, and stronger than ever.  His new movie "The Town" looks bad ass.  I wish movies were not so expensive, because I would love to go see this movie.

Today I am adding songs to my music player.  Time for some new tunes, or old tunes.
Give me some ideas, I love music and I will take anything into consideration.
So far today I have added
Paul McCartney and Wings songs.  His shit rocks!
Warren Zevon.  Thanks Dad, for hours of listening to his shit in your car, warped my mind
Pet Shop Boys. For some reason West End Girls was in my head this morn.
Maroon 5.  That lead singer can hit it man.

So tell me what to look for and I might check it out.

Ok now I have to end it with the sports portion.
And this is the gamblers part also.
I know my shit peeps, put money on it!!!

Texas -3 at Texas Tech.  Even with a young Qb in a hostile setting the Horns beat Tech and cover the 3

FSU got the snot bubbles knocked out of them last week, so look for them to rebound against BYU and cover the 9.5 points at home.

I hate Alabama, but with Ingram back, look for the Tide to smoke Duke and cover the high 23.5 points.

And another team I love to hate is the GawGa Bulldogs.  Even in Athens this weekend they will get hammered and lose as Arkansas cover the +2.5 and wins straight up.

For the NFL games,

I love the Falcons every week and this is a lock.  Coming home and opening up the Dome, watch Matty Ice Ryan bounce back as the Falcons cover the 7 and destroy Arizona

Good Lord, never thought I would be picking a f-ing Green Bay game but damn, Buffalo sucks ass.  Easy 13 to cover as the Packers run and pass over the Bills

Why are the Jets (even at home) favored against the Patriots?  I know my wife loves Brady and I love him too, so much that the Patriots +1 will put the Jets at 0-2

And I predict that I will go 2-0 in the Backyard Bloggers Fantasy Football League this weekend behind my one time man crush Mike Vick as he lead my team to VICTORY.

I know this was long but you have nothing better to do and you have all weekend to read it.

I promise you that when I say "There is no way on God's green Earth that I could stay home with four C's"  I really mean it.  I would love to do it, I love spending time with my kids,  but the shit they do drives me f-ing bonkers.

Take my beautiful C3.  Looking at this girl you would never think that she could be a problem at all.  You might never believe that she could be as big of a pain in my ass as a proctologist with extra long fingers......but she can be.

This darling daughter of mine pushes buttons better and faster than a NY city hotel elevator operator.  Just ask her mother and her brothers.

Last night I get home and I look at T with my sexy eyes and she says my least favorite thing "Don't start with me!"  I start laughing and she does not think I'm funny.  T starts doing sight words and flash cards with C1 and C2 and there is my beautiful daughter messing with the boys.  Instigating them and doing her best to basically get them to lose focus.

T then tells me that "This is what she has been doing",  messing with the boys.   I guess the boys wanted to watch Survivor with T (they like that show) and C3 would not stop messing with them.  This girl plays around so much that sometimes she has no clue of what she is doing.  She spilled 2 full cups of milk all over the kitchen and just continues to play.

I tried taking her into her room to do flash cards with her and as soon as she left her room, she was back at aggravating the boys.

I thought girls were suppose to be so sweet and gentle and calm but NO.  She is crazy, wild, stubborn, and she has these looks that burn holes in your skin like Buzz Lightyears laser beam.

The funny thing about this is that when all is said and done and the craziness has come to an end, my sweet little C3 gets her "I'm gonna get Daddy to do whatever I say" voice on and strolls into our bedroom and asks "Can I lay in your bed for a few minutes, when C4 goes to sleep?"

As hard as I try sometimes to tell her no, I just can't.  So while my only daughter does everything in her power to piss me the F off and bug me to no end with her higher than high inside voice,  she still know that Daddy can not tell her no.

My Son of a Beach........The one who will save the World

Maybe he will just start with his own bathtub.

"C1 time to go take a bath"  That is what I told him the other night after dinner.

He went into the bathroom and I figured that would be it.  Minutes went by and I didn't hear the water running. ??????   "C1, whats the deal?  Get the water going"  I yelled from the kitchen, since T and I were still eating.   A few more minutes went by and still no sound of running water.

I am thinking to myself (out loud)  "What in the world!"  So I get up and walk into the bathroom to find a tall and skinny naked 7 year old just chillin, hanging in the tub, sitting there laid back, taking the toys out of the tub, slowly.......

OK, now in my mind (to myself in my head), I'm thinking what the fuck is this child doing?  Sitting in an empty tub, taking his time, cleaning the toys out...

I go back into the kitchen and sit at the table and with a blank look on my face I tell T, "He has no water in the tub and he is just sitting in the tub, taking toys out.  T's response, "Oh yeah, he has to have a clean tub before he takes a bath!" and more "That is why I let him take the last bath, the tub will be clean when he is finished"

ME - OK.  Guess it makes sense...............Minutes later......Running water.

It was funny, and I laughed cause it made me think back to the Disney trip when we were hanging on the beach at our resort.

C2 and C3 were playing in the sand an building things and C4 was kind of just walking around.  C1, what was he doing?

Look in his bucket
(pay attention)

See what he's doing

My sufer dude looking son C1,  was walking around the beach picking up trash.  He kept finding trash and picking it up, putting it in his bucket and then making the trip to the garbage.  He did this over and over.  Now don't get confused, he did play and have fun in the sand and sun, but all of a sudden he started working on PROJECT: Beach Cleanup.

While I seem to be joking and making fun and laughing at my family and what we do, I feel proud knowing that T and I are raising good kids that seem to be able to make good choices so far and do good things.  Having my 7 year old son pick up garbage on the beach is something that I would not even do. 

So from cleaning up the tub before he takes a bath to picking up trash on the beach, C1 you are a damn good kid, and I am proud to be your Daddy.

This kids makes me feel good about myself

This boy, just like his brothers before him are MaMa's Boys.  I have no problem with that.  As T loves to put it "C4 is up my ass all day long"

But being the man that I am, I love it when my kids stroke my ego and make me feel good about myself, making me feel like I am the best dude around, father and all.

So on Saturday this boy over here to the left who is "always up his MaMa's Ass" decided to show his DaDa some love.

He started saying "DaDa" over and over and over again.  Usually it's "MaMa" but Saturday it was "DaDa"  So I took it upon myself to creat some self feel good phrases for him to finish.  I would ask the question and he would fill in the blanks with "DaDa" and a little laugh as well

So as soon as he knew what to do, it was on!

C4, Who am I?  DaDa
(we started easy)
Who is da man?  DaDa

Who do you love? DaDa

Who is the badest ass mofo around?  DaDa

Who loves your MaMa?  DaDa

Who is the coolest?  DaDa

Who has the biggest muscles?  DaDa

Who gives it to your MaMa good?  DaDa

Who does your MaMa give it good to?  DaDa

It was all going good until my better half decided to try it too

T - Who changes the shitty diapers the best?  DaDa

Wait, that isn't fair.  That question was not approved by me.  I do not change shitty diapers.

T really thought that was funny.

I DIDN'T!!!!

So in the end, C4 answered all the question right

except the diaper one.
