My Apologies To The Entire 43016 Zip Code

Danger Baby screaming at the top of her lungs at 4:30 in the morning because she’s still on Irish time and thinks it’s 9:30am? Oh our neighbors on this hotel floor must LOOOOOOOVE us!

What do you mean it's only 4:30am?

The Pilgrims Didn’t Land in Galway

We are flying home for the Thanksgiving holiday soon because being an exclusively American holiday, they don’t seem to celebrate it here in Ireland.

Today when I picked up Princess Crazy Preschooler and Danger Baby from daycare, I asked them if they wanted to go home for Thanksgiving or to the Grand Canyon.

Princess Crazy Preschooler yelled “Yes! The Grand Canyon!”

I asked her if she knew where the Grand Canyon was and she said, “it’s at home.”

Crazy is the New Calm

Last night trying to get Princess Crazy Preschooler to calm down and settle in for bed was taking a lot longer than usual.

When she finally did start to settle down Mommy declared “She’s starting to calm down now”, to which Princess Crazy Preschooler jumped up, started dancing while shouting “HOORAY! I’m calming down!”


I'm almost calm now

Trick or Treating


All ready for Trick or Treats on Kilbrody!

Trick or Treat!

After trick-or-treating, we came home to help Mommy pass out candy. Daughter Version 3.5 (Princess Crazy Preschooler) was still super excited from her own door-to-door candy grab and was relly into passing out the candy to the various superheroes, witches, princesses, and spooky spooks who were still showing up. Everytime the doorbell rang she declared that we had more “customers” and would run to the door.

When did I become Milton Hershey?

Pride as a Father

When playing “Don’t Let The Balloon Touch The Floor” you’re 3 1/2 year old daughter grabs the balloon, spikes it, and yells “TOUCHDOWN”!

Remixing Is Like Admitting You Were Wrong

I just taught Princess Crazy Preschooler (Daughter Version 3.5) how to sing “On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese”.

She’s really good.

The tour starts next month.


If I find one brown M&M in my dressing room, heads will roll!

Daughter Version 3.5 (aka – Princess Crazy Preschooler) just asked me to draw a dinosaur… and then add a hippo… and then Iron Man so he could save the hippo from the dinosaur.

I need to set up a meeting between her and Stan Lee.

The four step process…

STEP ONE: Buy a random toy for 1st child. Watch them completely ignore that toy for the next 17 months.

STEP TWO: Wait for 2nd child to reach age when said random toy was purchased for 1st child. See 2nd child show interest in toy.

STEP THREE: Watch 1st child go ballistic.

STEP FOUR: Experience World War III. Rinse. Repeat.
