Fridays Final Thoughts 4-30-10

This Daddy's Blog


Fridays Final Thoughts are brought to you by............well shit I have no endorsement deals like Nike, I am not sponsered by Dupont like my favorite #24 car, and I never hear a *Cha Ching* everytime I mention a product.............so this is brought to you by me!

Damn, another Friday is here. The last one of April.   May is here.  That means Mother's Day is around the corner.  That means I have to rack my brain to be creative and do something for my wife the mother of our C's and not spend any money.  I have already started planning this.  Kind of.

So much shit is going on.  I have been personally busting my ass writing emails, creating a blog, calling and walking my fucking self around the neighborhood putting letter on mailboxes for this homeowners assoc. that some people are interested in.  Some people just want the simple basic's.  Street lights,  safe drivers and basic lawn care.  Seems easy.    I am not doing anymore on this past putting the signs up I will make for next weeks 1st meeting and that is it.  Screw you people who talk all this shit and dont do anything.  I am ready to kick one of my neighbors ass for running his fat mouth.

On a lighter note.  Got the angry thoughts out of the way.

 T is the greatest.  People always say in comments or emails to me "You always are so sweet to your T"  shit be at home with us when I am a dick.  Truth is that I never give her enough credit at home, so I always do it here.  T is always one who likes to learn new things.  A couple things she learned this week................Never put a bottle of wine in your deep freezer and forget about it.  It shattered, glass everywhere and she cut her fingers, leading me to worry more than I needed to.   Second.  Never put foil in the bottom of your conventional / convection ovens.  The news are not like the old ones.  We now have a fancy silver bottom to our oven.  That is some funny shit.  Really.

Why are 3, 5 and 6 year olds so obsessed with their ass' and peckers?  I mean I know as an adult I am still obsessed with my pecker but for different reasons.........I hope.  Hands are always in the pants, they are always smacking their own ass, and shaking their booty.  God help me!

I hate not being able to fix my own shit.  I have beautiful Troy Bilt riding mower that cuts the front and back yard both in under and hour.  It is not running.  I had a place pick it up on Monday and they STILL have not fucking even looked at it yet.  I called this morning and the hick (you guys think I am a hick, talk to this guy) said there are 2 more in front of it.  Bullshit.  If  I had a truck and a trailer I would take him his $20 and go pick my shit up, and then tell him to run a better business and dont tell me shit on the phone and then not do it.

Kobe.  Tonight is your night.  End the series against the Thunder and let's get on to the next one.

Why do the 2 baseball teams I like both suck.  The Braves and Astro's.  You both suck ass.

And I leave you with this thought.   This song was in my head this morning as I came to my feet and got in the shower and bathed my clean shaven, good looking, tone, hot, most awesome self and then heard it again in the car.  It pretty much sums it all up...........bob your head, shake your booty, smack your ass and sing loudly

"I Got 99 PROBLEMS AND A BITCH AINT ONE!"

THE DAY THE BIKE STOOD STILL...UNTIL HE RODE IT

(pretend this is in deep movie preview guy voice)

THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE
(WELL I SAID)

THEY SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN
(YEAH STILL JUST ME)

UNTIL ONE DAY
(REALLY ON JUST ONE DAY)

A SPECIAL VIDEO CAME ALONG AND
CHANGED HIS WORLD FOREVER
(WELL MAYBE NOT FOREVER)

Ok so back to normal voice now, I can't stop talking about Mollys video when her husband used a balance method to teach their kids how to ride the bikes.  C1 saw that and wanted to do it. So yesterday T took off 1 pedal (only 1 cause the other wouldn't come off) but next thing she knew he was flying down the driveway.  Then the pedal went back on and he was riding on the street. She also took the pedals off C2's bike.

My emotions were mixed. I was so fucking excited, so much I wanted to cry.  He was so proud of himself and I wasn't there.  That is the part that sucked.  Something that I tried maybe once and gave up, he did in 5 minutes all by himself. The other part of me didn't care where I was, I knew that he had grown a little bit more by doing this on his own.

Here are a couple pics T took with her cell phone and sent to me

Now that he finally rode the bike, we have figured out that he need a new, bigger one. 

I did a little bloggie vloggie interview with him later last night...

enjoy.....

TOP 3 Thursday 4-29-10


What a damn good question this week.

If you could be a character in any movie, not the actor or actress but the character, who would it be and which movie?


3. Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) from Punch Drunk Love.  A small business owner that keeps his cool most of the time until he snaps and freaks out.  Everything builds up and then one day he finally loses it.  Yeah that is me. 

2. Peter Lafleur (Vince Vaughn) from Dodgeball-A true Underdog Story.  A gym owner who has to get a bunch of losers to perform above their standards and become heros.  I love it.

1. Caleb Holt (Kirk Cameron) from Fireproof.  So this hits close to home because while drinking all the time, I was a complete asshole to T and who knows how it might have played out.  Alot of things make you look at yourself and realize you can't be a dick to your wife and kids.  So I stopped drinking and it allowed me to have more time to do the little things.  In all fairness the movie was awesome, the book is good and I just need to finish reading it.

Night of Coloring

THE NIGHT WE BROKE OUT THE CRAYONS

So the kids have been asking me for the longest time to print out some coloring pages with the famous

WOW WOW WUBBZY

I finally got my head out of my ass and back on my shoulders and printed out the Wow Wow Wubbzy coloring pages and brought them home.  The kids were waiting for me at the top of the stairs and man they got so excited to start coloring.

So we sat at the kitchen table, broke out the crayons and got to it.







So we all colored....well not C4, he was too busy sleeping in T's arms.  I sat and colored at the table with the kids and we talked about the day and Wow Wow Wubbzy and they asked me to print out some Toy Story and Super Mario pages.  C1 is not really into coloring, he would much rather draw and he is awesome at it, he will sit for a long time to draw something until its right.  C2 is a great at coloring. He takes his time and puts the focus into it.  He gets the Jordan tounge sticking out while he colors.  C3, she does a good job for her age.  She will sit there and color and color and color.  She will do anything to get her hands on some colors and mark whatever is near.

It was nice to sit and color with the kids and talk about the day.  A great feeling.  Maybe next time I will sit at the table and color with the kids and be like them...................Sitting in a t-shirt and underwear and panties!!

REAL MAN / BAD ASS DAD APPRECIATION TIME

This is just something that happened to pop up in my pants, er I mean in my head today, so I thought I would do this with the quickness.  Cause as T would tell you, I do everything with the quickness. (Get your minds out of the gutter) But that too.

REAL MAN / BAD ASS DAD
 APPRECIATION NOTIFICATION

So in the last 2 days I have read 2 blogs where the the DADS have done something really cool.

These DADS don't blog, they don't sit and type about crazy shit and tell people about what a fool they are (like me). They don't pour their heart out and say how much they love their wives on a blog (like I do) I don't even know if they read their wives blogs?  At this point I don't give a rats ass if they do or if they dont.  This is about the DADS!

So enough bullshit, and on to the point.

I don't create buttons and awards but if someone wants to do that for me,  I will be happy to take it and steal it and put it on my blog and then hand it out when I see fit.

Well today I see fit.

Real Man / Bad Ass Dad #1

Molly @The Snyder5 has this husband Brian who makes appearences in her blog alot.  Well yesterday Molly did a post about Brian and his research on how to teach the kids to ride their bikes.  This is something I have failed at.  I have tried, but got impatient with C1 and C2 and pretty much figured that they would become the best damn scooter riders in the world.  He found that by taking the pedals off of the bike and teaching the kids to balance themselves would help them learn and then they start pedaling when they have the balance.  She has a video up on her blog.  This gave me new hope and I can't wait to try this with C1 this weekend.

So Brian, thank you! And you are a Real Man / Bad Ass Dad!

Real Man / Bad Ass Dad #2

Lisa @ Roerdink Ramblings has Jeff.  Jeff is a firefighter for a city that is kind of local to us here in Ga.  I read where she talked about the bad storms we had this weekend and then she went on to talk about how Jeff was sick, but STILL went to work and battled a apartment fire.  He was so sick he had to go to the hospital to get iv's and fluids.  One thing about the metro Atlanta area, there seems to ALWAYS be a f-ing apartment fire.  So for Jeff to be sick and go fight an apartment fire on the weekend of some bad storms,  that makes me proud to know that he is a firefighter close to city...kind of.

So Jeff I thank you! And you are a Real Man / Bad Ass Dad!

Both of your wives better be glad they have you.  I know they are and I know they thank you for all you do for the family, but they really need to thank you, I mean REALLY!

Put that in your pvc pipe

Just like the Imagination Movers sing about Good Ideas, I had one this past weekend.  I am the one who always comes up with the great ideas for things to keep the kids busy and having fun.  I always come up with something fresh to keep their brains expanding. 

Ok.  That whole top paragraph, just so you know is Bullshit.  Man I never seem to come up with cool shit.  The tubes on the 4 C's clubhouse, T's idea, the garden T's idea, the next thing we did this weekend that had the kids busy and having fun for hours, T's idea.

So when we were at the Home Depot T had another great idea.  Buy some 1/2 inch pvc pipe and then get some of the connectors to join them together.  A 10 foot piece of 1/2 inch pvc pipe is only about $1.50 and the little bags of the connectors were about the same price for a bag of 10 pieces.  We had this nice man cut the 10 foot poles into 24 inch pieces. The kids were so excited to get home and play with these.

So when we got home the kids ran to the bedroom and started putting together all kinds of things.  They got their marbles and made tunnels for the marbles to go through.  T and I agreed that we should have gotten this for the kids at Christmas.  They love it.  They were fighting over pieces.


And you can build whatever you want.  It can be something or it can be nothing.  You can make it a marble run or something for the little Super Mario figures to play on.  We have talked about getting more curved pieces and cutting them into different sizes.  So much you can do and you wont break the bank either.

So T, another wonderful job of finding a inexpensive way to keep the kids busy.  A great rainy day treat and something that the kids can play with for a long time. 

Damn what would you do without me?
I know it doesn't make sense but I like to say it anyways!!

Rainy Saturdays and Sunny Sundays....always get me down...to business

We had a great weekend and it all started with the major storm that blew in from the west but that didn't stop us from going to Home Depot and getting some things we needed to start over very first garden.  That is right we are starting our first garden filled with the finest herbs in Ga.  Well I am saying that they are going to be the finest.  Guess we will see.

It was not the easiest thing I have done, you know breaking  up the ground, going to the soon to be foreclosed home down the street and getting bricks to surround the area.  The kids did a great job in helping.  They all got their hands on some tools and broke a sweat.  We mixed the organic shitty smelling soil and then the good ol Earth and then we planted our goods. 

Home Depot had a great sale so we got some Jalapeno's, Cucumber's, Onion Chives, Cilantro, Cheyene peppers, this stuff smells so good.  I am hoping t goes well, and if it does we will add to the garden.









So this is our garden with our Scary Guy to keep all the animals and birds away


T also found some cool ideas for some things I could do to the C's clubhouse.  So I added some tubing onto the clubhouse for them to put things down and they were happy to have it done.  Something new.




Now the C's will be able to have the toy / dirt / water / whatever they can fit  drop tubes.

Well it was a long day and we were outside for most of it and while the 3 older C's were able to hang on for most of the day and get all of the playing in, a certain little C was not as lucky.  Or should we say he was lucky?

Falling asleep in the swing.  Man is there any better feeling than that?

Hell No.

Now for a little



My Movie Monday at Traveling Light


So while he got his little nap in outside in the swing, it was just a rest before we put him to work.
Who said  you can't make your 10 month old work for you?
Hey C4, can you take that laundy out to the other room for me please?

Do I hear Simon?

You are not going to Hollywood.............Yet

My first ever Bloggie Vloggie is up and I have been watching it over and over today, not because I love myself.  Wait, ok maybe because I love myself, but mostly because I want to do more of the Bloggie Vloggie stuff.  I realize that it sucked.  I still love looking at myself, but the bushy beard, the mini mullet growing in the back, probably had something in my teeth too. 

I have gotten some reviews back on the video and some are good and some are not so good.  Ok, screw that, I was not happy with it at all.  Shit, I only did it like 10 times before I found the one I liked.  Yeah, you see the one I settled on, so that tells you how bad the others were.

Some of what I learned about myself after the video hit the blog........

1. Good lord I need to shave.  I look like shit.
2. Haircut, just a trim.  Again I look like shit.
3. I sounded like a robot.  And that came from the wife.
4. I learned that I sound like an Irish Hick.  That is some funny shit.  I can't stand hicks and now I sound like one. 
5. I learned that I have a long way to go to Bloggie Vloggie like my Bloggie Vloggie Idol Jason Mayo at Out Numbered .  Go check his shit out. That is one funny dude.

I hope people realize that I don't care if you talk shit about me.  I think it is funny.  I never would have thought that I sounded like a hick and a Irish Hick at that.  That shit made me laugh so hard this morning.  DJ Kosmo, I may throw some short shirtless shots in the next one, but I have got to get T to shave the back first.  Anyone in our area of Ga. do free waxing? 

So, I am going to trim the beard and have T shape the hair.  The arms, chest and back will get shaved and I will be a damn good looking stud.  Ok, forget the damn good looking stud part, I will at least not look like a f-ing hairy lumberjack.


I am already putting together ideas for my next Bloggie Vloggie.  Maybe a music video?  A How To?

Wait and See
