I'm Dead

Well heck; I googled my name, clicked on images and found this headstone.

My wife is in the final month of pregnancy with our third and final child. She has high blood pressure, so she has had to spend most the last month in bed, after she comes home from work. This has been more than a little difficult for both of us. (I understand fully that what I am going through is nothing compared to what she is going through and I will never experience anything as uncomfrotable as a pregnancy.)

She goes to bed around seven o'clock, most of the time she takes the two-year-old to bed with her, which gives me a bit of a break. It is good to get a bit of a breather but most of the time I spend my evening trying to catch up on the housework. I don't get to see her, we have not spent any time together in the evening for months. s0, I get a bit bored and inevitably I spend a lot of time reading blogs, and other stuff on the internet.

My sob story is that I am just a little bit lonely these days.

A Tale of Hero Worship.

The toddler threw up a few minutes ago, a Her brother set her up on the couch with a bowl. His instructions to her were, "If you are going to puke, puke in the bowl." Now the two-year-old is running around the house coughing into the bowl and proclaiming "Kyle told me to puke in the bowl."

Hey, I was serious about hearing from a non-liberal or from anyone for that matter. there must be someone who can give me a good reason for cutting Medicare, farm subsidies and student loans instead of raising taxes on the "rich"

Terrible Twos

My little girl is about 2 and half now and has pushed me to the brink of admitting, that the "Terrible Twos" as a stage, is real. I don't remember the boy going through a stage like this, sure, he had his moments but mostly he was a mellow dude.

What the girl does, is follow me around the house and tug at my pants, tries to rustle me to the ground and is constantly asking to be held . Are these bad things? You ask (sorry to put words in your mouth) Even now while I am writing this all important blog, she is crawling all over me.
Clearly, she is starting to realize that she is a separate person and not physically part of her mom and me.

The other behavior she is exhibiting is the one where she gets into things that I don't want her to get into and thinks it's a game when I tell her not to. This is much more irritating than the above behavior.

The real problem is that I do not interact with her enough, I need to adjust instead of expect her to "behave". Yes, it is true that when the house needs cleaning, I have to put her on hold but when what I am doing is not at all important I should give my time to her instead.
