One Ring to Rule Them All

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1587. So over the three day weekend, the Captain broke his wedding ring.  It was the strangest thing you have ever seen.  What did the Captain do? Stick it in a vice, hit it with a hammer, throw it against the wall? No, I simply sat down.  The top […]

Growing Out Of Innocence

Captain’s Log.  Daddy Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1586.  So today was MLK Day.  I am old enough to remember when it was not recognized as a national holiday (It was originally a “teacher work day” at my elementary school.  Mom wrote a letter.  It became a holiday.)  I am old enough to have a parent who […]

Mom, I’m Sorry.

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1584.  The Captain has found that fatherhood causes one to be very reflective about a great many things.  There is the grand mystery of life itself, the mystery of those weird silica packets that come in brand new shoes (really, why are they there and why do they tell […]

My Great Nephew Inspires Deep Thoughts

Captain’s Log, Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1580. The Captain got to meet his great nephew last night. It is always funny how a parent’s immediate reaction, when holding a new baby, is to try and remember their child(ren) being that size.  The great nephew is a handsome young man.  The only knock against him is […]

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1579.  And the world, as we know it, is ending. The diaper dweller is now able to crawl – not well, but he is indeed mobile.

Manners and Etiquette

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1572b. Help. I am a grown man being held hostage against my will. Unfortunately, this is not the recurring daydream that I used to have during my Biology lab in college (all I remember from Biology is the daydream and Kingdom Phylum Class File Genius Species or whatever – […]

The Magic Elixir

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1572. Quick entry.  The eldest is a bit of a scam artist.  She stalled going to sleep.  Despite taking a nap at a earlier time, and for a shorter duration, it was still waaay too late when she finally fell asleep.  Last night she asked for something for her […]

All Night Long

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1572.  New Years Day.  A day of rebirth, tradition, and celebration.  The eldest was so tuckered out from her attempt to ring in the New Year last night, that she didn’t nap until late in the afternoon.  Not a problem, right?  Wrong.  A late nap means late bedtime.  Late […]

She Almost Made It…

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1571. The eldest decided that she wanted to stay up until the ball dropped. This was going to be a challenge for all involved. Her regular bedtime is 7:30. Around 7:35 if she is not in a bed rubbing her eyebrows she transforms into a Tazmanian Devil that terrorizes […]
