It's the youngest's first day of ballet. Been watching big sister and big brother her whole life. Super proud.

Not every day you see a '73 Hemi 'Cuda at Mickey D's.

The eldest just put this on her brother's back. No more Calvin and Hobbes books for her.

See attached. #trollgaze RT : Hey , how many dates have you turned down from ?

Last day of week off. Big kids at school; lazy breakfast w/the youngest at a trendy sushi joint. I mean, McDonald's?!

For one day, in a roundabout way, we kinda-sorta shared a masthead. I'm beaming.

Want to feel better about yourself? Commission a portrait from your child. Behold my of mastery of three sports!

How on Earth is it my littlest's first day of preschool? #endofanera


Man, this reminds me of Grandma. She'd always make me some good old fashioned dark chocolate instant oatmeal with flax.

Here's what I got so far. RB3 is a disaster.

Had to make a supply run. If I'm going to do this, I'd better do it right.

Whoa. Kid's an engineer.

This is sweet. Thanks again to for setting up this day of fandom and charity at the Meridian Mall Old Navy!

Oh man, not only are they selling Lions and Spartans gear, they're doing free face painting! Get here and donate.

Too cool with new haircuts.

Doomed. Completely doomed. #absolutelynotyounglady

The seven-year-old boy in me is dying of cooties. The father-of-a-seven-year-old-girl in me is sweating bullets.

Awesome. SFO has Anchor Steam on tap:

Check my father-in-law coming correct with the a brand-new Billy Sims throwback. Classy.
