The Failmometer

I think things are improving.  I think… It would be seriously helpful if I had a thermometer that gave the same reading twice in a row. Behold the Braun failmometer. Seriously.  Do not buy that thing. If I …

Back to 99s

We’ve gone back to the mild fever thing again. Daphne has been running between 99.7-100.7 since Saturday night and has a horribly stuffy nose to go with it. “I don’t feel good, Daddy…” I noticed that, when we …

Daphne has been playing with these “Opposites” flash cards for a week now and, like I do, I’ve been explaining them to her in my own particular idiom. For example, Kitty cat. Matrix “missing face” kitty cat. Or, …
