As an update to what has been going on here, I took the Boy to his second pro hockey game (he went to an exhibition NHL game with us when he was much younger and this time we went to an ECHL game with a skate on the ice afterwards. We had a great time and not only did we get to see 7 goals for the home team, he also got the pro hockey fight experience. He seemed to really enjoy so it looks like we will have to make another trip soon. By his request we also went to the art museum, even heard some bagpipes while we were there which I thought was neat while he was a bit unsure. I also think he is getting antsy for school to be back in session, well at least I am.
The girl is starting to communicate even better and we hear new words all the time. She still eats everything as a couple of nights ago she ate a whole enchilada and some strawberries. I love the fact she will eat anything but at the same time I am not happy about as that means there is less of the good stuff for me. I am convinced she will speak Chinese before English as she loves Ni-Hao Kai-Lan and seems to have no trouble making the sounds of the Chinese words. In reality she has probably been talking the whole time and I am the one that needs to learn a new language.
Christmas was good, the Boy really loved as the one thing he asked Santa for, Santa brought among many other nice things. The Girl was also happy with her Kai-Lan, Sid the Science kid, Wonder Pets Dolls Santa brought her, among many other great things.
Finally as a wrap up to 2009, I will be continuing to write about the kids, my frustrations, etc., but I was curious to my reader (or readers carefully assuming there is more than one) if there are any questions or things you would like to read about in the coming year. Happy New Year, 2010 promisings to bring some exciting things to blog about. Stay tuned...

This season has brought some interesting questions and comments from the Boy about Santa. We have been fortunate to have his Santa photo taken with the same Santa every year, but he can't figure out why Santa always looks the same, and we simply can answer because it is Santa. He seems to know something is up but I think he is smart enough to know not to say anything or ask the right questions, as he certainly believes especially when I threaten to call Santa to tell about his behavior. Of course my favorite was the other day when he asked, "Will Santa bring presents for you and Mommy too?" So from that we got a couple little things to wrap up from Santa so we have avoided that for the time being. Sometimes I think he is trying to figure out how Santa does things and magic is always the answer. Well, he certainly is excited and especially since he asked for something specific we should be able to keep the magic of Santa alive and well.

The Boy actually then talked to Santa and told him exactly what he wanted. Santa said he would do his best. He is very excited and can hardly wait for Christmas.

The girl is really trying to become my favorite as I found out she likes Taco Bell and on top of that the kids meals come with Cinnamon Twists. So after her cheesy roll-up we shared in the cinnamon twists and both very happy from the experience. On a side note, the cantina tacos are good and it is one of the very few fast foods that look just like the commercial. She is learning more and more words, but the best is still her lion roar (if you see her jsut ask her "What does a Lion say?"). She is also becoming quite expressive and this little girl knows what she wants and will throw a good tantrum to get it and it almost seems that she knows my weak times when I am frustrated to no end and will give in because those tantrums are clearly on another level.
Coming soon, first haircut pictures...

The Boy is really enjoying hockey, I can't wait until he gets to play on a team as right now he is in the learn to play program where they do play some games but it is mostly learning to skate better, handle the puck a little, etc. He is adventurous some times too, he decides he wants to go play in the bigger groups because they look like they are having more fun because they use pucks more, I like the fact that he is willing to be adventurous but at the same time it scares me as I don't want him to get hurt because some of the kids in the other groups are 7 or a bit older as you have to go through the learn to play before being put on a team. He does ok just doesn't have the knowledge or all the skills of what they are doing to participate easily. He is also very excited for Christmas and even more so the Polar Express party they are having at school. I don't think the teacher knows what she has gotten herself into as he lives for this movie and his Polar Express Train and his CD, etc., etc., etc.
Also just a note for those who have missed it the new Disney Christmas special "Prep and Landing" is very good. The Boy didn't see it yet but he will be watching it on Dec. 18th at 7:00 on ABC Family. My wife and I really enjoyed it and I think we were both surprised by how much we liked it. (Just a note I don't get paid by Disney, but maybe I should.) The Boy has seen commercials for it and already quotes lines from the show.

The quote of the day from the Boy, "There is no crying or whining in the morning." He was talking about his sister, but then later before school he decided to whine a bit and reminded him of the rule that he made up. Needless to say he was not happy with me bringing it up.

The girl has started a new fascination, opening a drawer and trying to put her foot in and climb up onto the table or into the drawer. I have to figure what she is trying to do as she can't quite pull herself up so her leg mostly gets stuck in the drawer. She is starting to use a few more words, but she still remains quite expressive. Everyone says the Boy will eat us out of house and home, but the fact is she is the one that eats anything and everything, even Bobby's Goulash.

The Boy and his drawing have really improved. He is drawing more than scribbles these days. Things that are distinguishable are trains, apples, flowers, houses. He seems to be really taken by art and sports lately as he has really taken a strong liking to Hockey, as he asked the other day, "What would happen if I stayed at the ice rink all the time?"
The Girl has decided to try and start using words as opposed to her pointing and grunting. It is making things a bit easier and a little more fun, although with the words she uses there is usually a demand involved, like "Cracker!" or "Juice!" or her new favorite "Ball!" The other thing I want to know is why must she want to do the things that are the most annoying to adults. For example there is an extra dining chair in the corner that she insists on sitting on. the annoying part is she needs help to get on it and soon as she is up there for five seconds she gets down and wants up again. Also, she can climb up on the rest of the furniture so I don't get the big deal with the chair. I have thought of removing the annoying objects in the room, but it becomes an issue of where to put them as there really is no other place for them at the moment.

He has come a long way since his first practice where he was scared and cried the whole time on the ice. Every practice he gets better and tries more stuff.

A new phrase from The Boy, "What the Fake?" I can only assume he learned this at school after I taught him, "Damn it!" Which he has turned to "Bam it!" All we try to do is ignore it so we shall see how long this lasts.

Boy: "Who is that?"
Mom: "Tiger Woods"
Mom: Yes, his name is Tiger like your name is Boy.
Boy: Is he golfing?
Boy: He is getting a lot of goals!
Mom: No in golf you try to get the ball in the holes.
Boy: Oh, he is good at getting it in the holes.
Mom: Yes he is very good at getting it in the holes.
Boy: Not like Daddy who isn't good at getting in the holes and gets mad and throws his ticket on the ground.
Then the laughter ensued. So apparently Tiger Woods is a little better at golf than me. The story behind the ticket on the ground is from a golf outing I was at recently and they had raffle prizes. I bought some raffle tickets, one must have fallen out of my pocket when I got home and was in the garage as he saw it there a few days later. He asked what the ticket was for and I told him it was from a raffle at the golf outing outing that I didn't win. I guess he imagined the rest as :::sarcasm::: I don't get made playing golf :::end sarcasm:::.

The Boy and I went to a couple of high school cross country meets which was very exciting to him and to me. He likes to run and watching people run, where I like the fact that he has taken a greater interest in sports. He will be starting the "learn to play" program for hockey soon so we shall see how it goes. We even went to a high school football game where he had a great time as well. In addition, he has taken a liking to doing math (or learning it at this point) as it all started with a simple dollar purchase at Target of Math Bingo. Sometimes it is amazing how the small things can make such a big difference.
The girl is eating just about anything she can get her hands or we put in front of her. One of her new favorites is risotto along with grilled zucchini. She also has a great love for shoes so I guess I will have to start hiding the credit cards.
Nothing much more exciting to post. The Boy's fifth birthday is coming soon and the excitement of the holidays after that.

She has also received her first taste of timeout. Well it was more of me holding her in my lap explaining to a 16 month old not to do something (I am sure I totally got through to her). The girl likes to climb on furniture, she can get down by herself as well but the issue is standing on furniture. A while ago we got a storage ottoman/table for our living room because we thought it would be better for the baby and bumping it with her head. We didn't realize the real danger would be her climbing on it, standing and smiling at us. Well we tell her to sit down and she usually listens but today was an exception, she stood smiling at me the whole time. I proceeded to get her down and she climbed back up so now came the timeout. I took her down and sat her on my lap and tried to explain that she is not to stand on furniture. She wasn't really happy with this and decided to scream and grab my face giving me a small cut on my cheek. After a minute I set her down and she continued to wail but she eventually calmed down and didn't climb on the ottoman again and I was relieved because I was afarid of the beating I may take the next time.

On some other notes, the Girl can now climb on and off the couch all on her own. Start hiding the remote! She was quite proud today when she got off the couch all by herself without falling. In addition there seems to be nothing she won't eat, today she had some grilled zucchini with her hot dog for lunch. The Boy on the other hand is pretty picky and mostly just doesn't want to try stuff but occasionally he does and likes it, although yesterday he asked when I am done with lunch can I have more carrots so I am not complaining.
Finally, we went to a local park to walk, my son actually jogged a whole trail as the Girl and I tried to keep up in the stroller. Then we went and played on the playground, where I calmly (yes surprisingly calm) had to correct another dad for yelling at the Boy who was just trying to play with his kids. No harm done, just a helicopter parent swooping in. We had a good time all together as evidenced by the picture below:

Boy: "I need to buy something."
Dad: "Do you have any money?"
Dad: "Then how are you going to buy something?"
Boy: "Well, you could buy something and then give it to me." (with wry smile)
Dad: "Not today."
Boy: (literally explodes)
I picked him up put him in the cart and proceeded to go checkout with him crying and screaming through the store. The interesting thing was being able to tell who had kids and who did not, anyone with kids (even if they were not there) didn't bat an eye towards us and the ones without gave the look of "What did that man do to that poor child?" or "Can't you control your son?" At least it was a nice big store so it didn't sound as loud as opposed to our house and being in a smaller room with him. He cried all the way to the car and halfway home and then realized that I was just not listening anymore. Which brings me to the thought of wishing I could get something fun for myself every time I went to a store like Best Buy, Dick's Sporting Goods, Williams Sonoma, etc. Maybe it is time to start learning chores and earning some cash for the little man.

The Girl is doing great, she has her 15 month appointment next week, should be a fun one. She is walking all over, chasing her brother, and loves giving donks to her Daddy. She is developing quite the personality as she is a champion food tosser and I believe has the stinkiest diapers known to man. We have bought a new diaper pail and have even tried using those Oder Blocker bags and sometimes it is no match for some of her diapers. At least it is one of them using diapers now so I shouldn't complain. Teeth are coming in at an alarming rate and she made her first trip to the jeweler to help me pick out Mommy's something special for getting the Boy to use the Potty for everything. She thought the shiny things were awesome and I am sure that now I have upped the ante on what presents she will want for her 2nd birthday next year. I will try to post a picture later of the something nice as I am sure some of you are wondering what you get for making someone poop in the potty.

As many of you may know we have tried many methods to get this to happen, but my wife gets all the credit here. She pulled out his Highlights calendar and told him to pick a day for no more diapers. He picked July 19th. Every day we marked off on the calendar and celebrated the fact that July 19th was "Potty Day, No more Diapers!!" There was some very hip dancing to go along with this exclamation each day. We got to the 19th and celebrated that it was Potty Day and there were no more diapers, he never asked for one but didn't sleep real well that night. Then today he seemed as if he needed to go and it was just a waiting game to see if he was going to try or if he was going to ask for a diaper. All day he was fine, then came bedtime and he went pee in the potty and to bed. He got up once and had an accident when he went to his spot in his room he would go when he wore a diaper and had to make stink. He was upset by this but we reassured him and he went back to bed. He got up again and went pee again, this time making it to the potty. Then he got up a third time in a bit of distress and said "The stink is coming out." We rushed to the potty, sat down and he tried. My wife read him a book, then he wanted alone time and soon he pushed it out and into the potty. We were all excited, he was so happy he had tears in his eyes. I can't tell you how proud I am, or how happy I am. Even though there are many days that would be the best days ever (marriage, births, etc.), this for today is it, the best day ever!

Edit: I almost forgot the "When is Summer Break over?" question is now up to 11 times since school has been out.
I finally have a couple pictures of the kitchen for those of you that have yet to see it, I tried to clean up as much as the kids would allow:

Her big brother better watch out because when she starts chasing him it will be trouble. There is a negative side to this, as she begins walking more and more she has stopped cleaning the floors. While crawling she would pick up everything and try to put it in her mouth, even after a freshly swept room she would find stuff and dart right for it. Now with the walking she doesn't see as concerned with the stuff on the floor, just more the stuff that she can't reach on tables and shelves.
On to other things, the best time of the day for the Girl is the Night-night train. We started this with the Boy which made bed time a lot easier but he has since stopped wanting to do it, however the the Girl loves it. When we get her PJs on she is already excited, then I give out the call "Allllll Aboard!" and she practically jumps out of her PJs. I guess since her brother is so much into trains she doesn't have much of a chance, but she loves the night-night train every night.
As for the count on the number of times I have been asked if Summer break is over yet, it is now up to two. Hopefully this will subside soon as I just may drop him off at school for a couple hours.
Sunday, June 7, 2009
On the third day of summer break my son said something to me that was good and bad all in one short question:
"Daddy, is summer break over yet I want to go to school?"
I was grateful that he likes school so much as most of my time in school I was trying to get out of school, but at the same time I thought it is going to be a long summer. Soon we will have our little pool setup, we will make trips to the zoo, we have a vacation planned, we have some camps for him to go to, so it will be ok it is just the current adjustment period of not having it. I am interested to see what happens at the beginning of the school year to see how he reacts this time.
Monday, June 1, 2009
The Boy: "DAMN!"
Daddy: What did he say?
Mommy: He said "Bam."
Daddy: Are you sure? Boy, what did you say?
The Boy: DAMN!
Daddy: that is a bad word, you do not say that. Where did you learn that from?
The Boy: My Friend from school.
Well at least he won't learn anything else from his friend as it is summer break.
The Girl is getting more daring with the walking. She has taken a few steps now and then but not much more but I think she will be flying around this house with her brother in not time. Today she opened the gate, granted we haven't locked it until today because she mostly left it alone, once she was through it was like lightening as she was trying to get away as quickly as possible.
I got to golf an actual round of golf for the first time in about 4 years. I have played in scrambles and the like usually twice a year since the Boy was born, but this was actual golf except the way I played. I am really glad they sell golf balls in dozens or else it would have been a short round. I just can't wait to get out there again.

Boy: "Daddy, what are those lines?"
Daddy: "What Lines?"
Boy: "Those lines."
Daddy: "Where are these lines?"
Boy: "On your face."
So now I know I am old.

|The Boy:||The Girl:|
|Birth||7 lbs. 12 1/2 oz. 21 1/2 inches||6 lbs 13 oz. 21 1/4 inches|
|One Year||22 lbs. 4 oz. 32 inches||20 lbs 4 oz. 29 inches|
I realize comparing them is meaningless. Even though I think they have the same energy which will either make me crazy or insane, not sure which one I just know that that much energy between the two of them is going to keep me hopping.
Monday, May 11, 2009
The Girl is on the verge of walking as when we got to the grandparents house and set her down she put her feet down and stood there for a good 20 or so seconds in the least. She currently zips around with her walker and has even learned to turn around with it. Today she found the joy of running into my legs as she thought it was pretty funny.

She received lots of nice gifts and can't decide which gift to give the most attention to, and her brother is a big help as he can't stop playing with her tea set. In addition, when she was opening presents he wanted to put one of the hair bows in his hair. I simply just shake my head and smile as I guess he needs more time playing sports.
Here are a couple of more pictures of The Girl enjoying the cake and in her party dress. You may also notice in a couple of the pictures you can see glimpses of the kitchen that I have been working on and now that the party is done maybe I will get the time to get it cleaned up and take some pictures for all to see.

1 + 3 + 8 + 9 = 21
That to me is very interesting.
On the second part of this whole number thing, after discovering tha I started thinking about my favorite and important number, 43. Some ask why that is my number, well in short order it was on of the first numbers I wore playing football when I first could play sports in grade school. Also it has come up many times in good and bad times in my life. When I was diagnosed with diabetes I was in room 403 with IV machine number 43. I also did a random number generator once where it asked all these question and then picked your lucky number from 1 to 100 and it picked 43. So where this is all going is the fact that if you add up all the months of the above dates:
5 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 = 43
So right now I am excited and freaked out all at the same time by this discovery even though it goes right along with my superstitions.

The big day was Saturday. It was special trip day. It was a surprise. Well he figured out what we were doing as soon as we hit the on ramp of the expressway. We were going to see Thomas the Train. Although the train shirt he was wearing and Thomas DVD he was watching in the car might have been big hints. As usual we didn't quite leave on time so when we got there it was a quick walk to get to the station where Thomas was at for our ride time. Everything was going quite smoothly until the usual disaster hit, the Boy as he does on many occasions tripped and fell, he skinned his knee with a small cut so it was bleeding right as we are going to wait in line for our ride time on Thomas. So my wife is holding the Girl and I am trying to clean up his knee and spray some Neo To Go on his knee and it was just a scream fest. Once I got the bleeding stopped and sprayed it we just let it go and he was fine. (I said usual because this tripping has happened before at things we go to do and some how he ends up hurting himself.) The train ride was great and it was off to lunch which went rather smoothly except when the Girl was trying to snatch a Boy Scout's chicken nugget at the next table, it was actually quite funny. The we went to do some of the activities when both kids started on that slow downhill slope of a meltdown. We lasted as long as we could and went home. Unfortunately I still am yet to get a picture of the Boy standing with Thomas as he seems to have a fear of getting his picturte taken with imaginary things/people like Santa, because usually he hams it up pretty good and likes to have his picture taken. Then to top off Saturday, I got my new grill and my wife and I got to go out for the evening and enjoy the nice weather.
Then Sunday was yard work day and getting caught up in my garden. We also bought a swing for the Girl as you can see in the picture on the left and she loved it. I also got use my grill and after the first test it did pretty well. So I think it will be a few days before we recover from such a busy, crazy but fantastic weekend.
Friday, April 17, 2009
Yes the above seems random with no real flow but I just was given a n update and typed as it pooped in my head. Two kids that are into everything home together does that to you.

Recently my wife and I went to Ikea to purchase a new table for our kitchen redo along with some other accessories. It is probably a good thing there is not an Ikea right near by as we love that store. We went to go look at and probably buy a particular square table with pull out leaves but we ended up getting something completely different although we both love it. It is a counter height stainless steel table with four stools with washable covers. It is, as the boy would say, "Awesome!" Now maybe it is not the most practical for our 10 month old, but sometimes you have to have something for yourself instead of the kids. The Boy loves it and thinks it is neat that he gets to sit so high.
Once the table was picked out and we were starting to get into accessory mode it was go time. We had a lot of fun picking out new stuff and then even buying new dishes because we wanted to. I think the best part, besides helping the economy, was just getting what we wanted for a change.
With Ikea stuff there is a lot of cardboard. We bought the Boy some stuff and he was more interested in the cardboard. so after recycling about 90% he is busy playing with the other 10%. Sometimes I think Why not just buy all the stuff I want in cardboard packages then we both win... I get stuff and he gets fun cardboard. This leads me the final part of the title which is actually the first part, "Shooters." The pre-school my son goes to does not allow weapon play of any kind (as I am sure most schools are the same), but the kids are vary creative in the sense of they know they can't play with toys a certain way so they come up with different ways and words to accomplish the same thing. There was a long cardboard tube and this is what the Boy had to say, "Dad, look at my shooter. It is a shooter that shoots things but it isn't gun." I laughed and appreciated his creativeness.
As for the Girl, she is really starting to motor around on the hands and knees as well as pulling herself and walking along furniture. She has also developed some great facial expressions. And occasionally she gets the name "Miss 'Tude" as she is developing quite a personality sometimes with a little attitude.
Finally, the kitchen redo is almost done, we just have to figure out flooring so hopefully I will be posting pictures soon.

He had his second ice skating lesson and did it all almost all by himself the whole time. So if he shows this kind of improvement each lesson and practice I figure he will be ready for the NHL by age 7, making him the youngest NHL player ever. Although if he plays for our loved Red Wings then it may take a few more years to actually play in the NHL as their depth in their minor league team is very deep.
Thursday, February 26, 2009
The Boy started ice skating lessons recently. He has started his long journey to be the next great player in the NHL. The first lesson went OK as it was his first time on ice skates on the ice. He is really excited about playing hockey but realizes he must first learn to skate. The lessons are six weeks, so hopefully by then he will gain some comfort on the ice and begin to learn to balance and skate a bit.
The Girl is getting quicker and starting to pull herself up on all types of furniture. Plus she is in the process of trying to drive me out of my mind with the razor sharp finger nails. She is also still fighting any types of food beyond fruit. I know this is normal but her brother when small ate just about anything we gave him and to this day sometimes will say, "If I finish my dinner can I have some carrots?" So I guess one out of two isn't bad.
The kitchen is coming along, the cabinets are done, so the tile backsplash, floor and electrical outlets switches are all that is left beyond accessories and a new table. Hopefully with any luck or cooperation from the children the glass tile backsplash will be done this weekend.
Monday, February 16, 2009
Now the part that got your attention, chloroform. We were all going to do some shopping together and The Boy asked, "How do leaves change color?" Since I had the important job of driving the car I said, "I don't know so we will let Mommy answer." So Mommy started to say, "There is less sun. Trees have chloroform... no, they have chlorophyll which helps them turn green...." The rest really isn't important but it was very funny, so much so that if I answered the question myself my driving probably would have been much safer from all the laughter. Although I will say my wife is pretty is smart as if you want a simple answer to his question I have linked a page for you: http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/leaves.html.
And for those wondering about the kitchen progress. Well after painting it once and not liking it we went the paint sample route. After paint colors 6 and 7 we have narrowed it down to two. We have our tile backsplash pieces so it should start to come together. Now if we could only find a few extra hours in the day to get it all done.
Friday, February 13, 2009
She is also starting to pull herself on things as she received a music table for Christmas and now she crawls over to it at least four or five times a day and pulls herself up and plays some beautiful music.
The Boy is still crazy as ever, we have been building a lot of lego cars, trucks and planes lately. He is very creative in what he builds. He also starts his ice skating lessons very soon, he is excited and hopefully it will be something he likes.
Finally, the kitchen remodel is moving along as our glass tiles should arrive soon and the countertops are in, but we are having a heck of a time trying to find a light brown color to paint the walls. What happened to the basic Crayola colors in the 8 pack box (blue, green, red, yellow, black, brown, orange, purple)? It is frustrating but we will get it done.
Tuesday, February 3, 2009
On another note, the Boy went from being a boy to being "MY" boy as he tried his first chicken wing today. I was very excited. He has started to enter his first steps towards being a man. Now I just have to find out what his favorite sauce is.

Now on to the Inauguration. I had my the Boy and the Girl watch this historic moment. Well the Girl ate and slept through it so not much excitement there. The Boy on the other hand watched it intently as he knew something important was happening but really doesn't understand all what was going on. He knew it was about the President and that the new President was Barack Obama but he didn't know more than that. I told him someday he will understand the importance of this day but probably not for a while, he simply said "OK!" The one thing he did say that surprised me was, "I wish we could go to this." So in the back of my mind I planted the idea of someday going ot the Inauguration and I can tell him it was all his idea.

Some news, the Girl has her first tooth coming in. My wife discovered it. We knew she was teething as she just went through her second teething ring by biting a hole in it, this time it was probably the tooth. She seems very happy about it and is all the much closer to feeding herself.
The Boy and I went sledding today and he actually went down the hill by himself a couple of times, once was even face first. I thought it was awesome as sometimes he wants someone with him for reassurance. Then I wasn't really happy about it as I had to go down the hill to get the sled, I know he is four but if you ride it down, you carry it back up. All in all it was an exciting day today.

We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen, which will be hard work but it should be nice when it is all done (I realize I never posted the before and after pictures of the bathroom, I will work on that as I still have to take some after pictures), I don't know if there will be before pictures because we already started as we painted a cabinet to see if we were going to paint or replace them. After painting it we decided we like the paint. The Boy thinks it is pretty cool and since painting one cabinet I get the question of "Is it done yet?" about two or three times a day right now. I wish I had the time to work on it all day so it could get done as I can't wait to have an updated kitchen, especially for the counter tops.
