We Survived 13 Months of Parenthood!

Yesterday was Michael’s year appointment despite the fact that he is 13 months. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on yesterday’s Dads say the darnedest things post either! The woman told me not to schedule his year appointment a few days before his birthday party because some kids might be annoyed with life after it and …

Are You Wearing a Bra?

We took Michael to his 12 month checkup today because he is 13 months old and you guessed it, I was a slacker rescheduling his appointment. By now you probably aren’t surprised with that admission though. The waiting room was packed because everybody and their Brother needed appointments and I mean that literally because it …
