Blog-I am your faddah and yo muddah. For this I am sorry. All those dramatic “fatal error” messages you’ve been forced to give people? Sorry. I don’t know what I’m doing. But I’m not ashamed to beg ask for help. In the last twelve hours two people have been up in your business doing things I was unable to do on my own. Sorry if you feel violated, but you look so much better. And hopefully work so much better too. (Hey, if any of you get a fatal error message will you let me know? kthxbai)

Big juicy thank yous to Elizabeth and J. Maxfield for getting their code all up in my FTP. (blog humor. har.)

And now moosh-your dad is up in bed snoring and moaning like a severely wounded walrus. Today is Father’s Day and I just wanted to let you know, as someone who’s lived with your dad for seven years that the teasing and relentless obnoxiousness will likely never stop. It’s how he shows us that he loves us.


Your shrieks of horror and protest must be music to your dad’s ears or else he wouldn’t insist on pissing you off so often. He never had a brother. We have to forgive him for this. Guy just doesn’t know how to be surrounded by wimmin all the time. It’s made him a little crazy. Good news? Any brothers that you may have will pale in comparison to what your faddah dishes out.

There is a moment in your birth video where he reaches out and touches you really REALLY quick while the nurses are cleaning you off. He didn’t want to get in trouble. You can hear the nurses say “It’s okay dad, she’s yours, you can touch her all you want.” Later when he told me that he got to be the first! to! touch! you!  was the first time I ever saw him weakened with the power a little girl holds over her daddy. He hasn’t recovered since. You are his world.

In another hour he will get up and start teasing us. And poking us. And annoying us. This is how boys show they like you. From kindergarten to high school to marriage. The more they pick on you the more smitten they are.

I think it would be impossible for daddy to be any more smitten with us.

We’re lucky ladies.

Happy Father’s Day dude.


  1. What a great post. And I LOVE the new header picture. It’s be my favorite one yet. Hope you have a good (dry) father’s day! We’re thinking of you, our southerly neighbors, and hoping our rainwater runoff isn’t heading your way…

  2. Oh, also, apparently it’s be impossible for me to speak English properly this morning. Sorry.

  12. It was my pleasure to poke around your FTP, dear (and yes, I know EXACTLY how that sounds, all you dirty-minded people!). Sorry I couldn’t fix it, but I was glad I suggested Twitter-it’s like blog 9-1-1.

    My husband is the exact same way, always poking and teasing me and Kaitlyn, it drives me nuts!

  14. I have four older brothers, so I can relate to this kind of teasing. Tell her not to worry; she already knows his weak spot (his heart) and can overpower him any time just by sticking her bottom lip out 🙂

  19. Um, can you send me that birth video? I would love to hear that nurse tell the moosh daddy that it’s okay to smoosh the moosh.

    I’ll send you mine, if it has to be a tit for twat kind of thing. (man, I am a riot.) You can watch Goose shoot out of my body like a greased rocket in one big shot.
