Five Days

8:25am, Monday to Friday. And no, that look of gloom like he's being dragged off to a child labour camp isn't just a bad shot, that's what he looks like every day. He leaves class laughing and smiling, but mornings are for diva's.



Tuesday: Liam's two best friends. Liam, being the trooper he is, still managed to keep watching the Wonder Pets while throwing up into the bowl. Then he slept for about 23 hours and woke up like nothing had happened.



Breakfast: Multigrain, Honey Nut and Fruity Cheerios, Quaker Harvest Crunch, Kashi 7 Whole Grain Honey Puffed and a generous handful of dried cranberries. And when I'm feeling very naughty I throw in a chopped up banana.



Wednesday: The last freakin wallpaper in my house. Was it common in the 70's to use Crazy Glue when putting wallpaper up? This shit could survive a tactical nuclear strike.



Thursday and Friday and possibly all of next week as well.


But don't worry, mom and baby are fine, they just need some hospital monitored relaxation to make sure the bun is well and truly cooked before it leaves the oven.

  1. When you're feeling exceptionally mischievous do you throw in a chopped watermelon?

  2. There's a really hip breakfast fusion restaurant in L.A. called Bowl that serves mixed cereal like that.

    Better hurry up and paint over the crazy glue residue before mom and bun get home!

  3. Sometimes just watching Wonder Pets makes me want to throw up. I just avert my eyes, though.

    Blessings on the bun, my friend...yes, indeed, make sure all is well. Thinking good thoughts for you and SL and the lads.

  4. When we pulled up the floor of my father-in-law's 70s era house I swore that he had used the same glue that they used to keep the tiles on the Space Shuttle.

    So Liam is not a morning person?

    Hope all is well.

  7. You've have quite the week. Vomit duty is by far my least favorite part of parenthood.

    I hope SL is okay. She's not due for another month, though, right? Make sure the freezer is stocked with her favorite ice cream when she gets home. Ice cream is the best part of bed rest.

  8. keep the bun in the oven til it has fully risen.....mine came out half baked and took forever to get it up to snuff.......but 23 years later not a bad lil cookie.

  9. Best wishes to SL. Tell her I said Hey. I really need to go find a kickass baby gift :)

  10. Oh, that little look has such huge power! My grandson looks like that every morning for pre-school and is a happy camper every afternoon. Fingers crossed for the best possible outcome for your wife and Baby Bun! You're really earning that Father's Day card this year.

  11. I get that look from the Pixie on daycare mornings. I know she loves it, but damn, she gives me a look of death every time. "You're leaving me HERE?!?!?"

    Sending nice relaxing thoughts to SL and the Bun.

  12. I liked Wonder Pets more than my daughter did, is that wrong?

    I'm sending all the best to your wife and Baby Bun!

  13. Oh my, that's some tasty looking cereal. (I could eat cereal for three meals a day, no problem.)
    Hope all is okay with SL and that she gets some good rest.

  14. Thinking relaxing thoughts for your wife and bun. What a way to wind up that oh-so-busy week!

    Oh and congratulations on besting the last of the wallpaper. We still have some in our old house that is from the 40's, or earlier. The plus side is that it starts coming down by itself. The minus is that the old horsehair plaster walls mean new wallpaper is way easier than smoothing and painting.

  15. Looks like a wild and woolly week to me! Mine seem to have the throw-up-at-2am-run-wild-the-next-morning thing going lately. Last night was the Princess' turn, and of course she was much more dramatic, tears and everything!

    Hope the bun is doing well and SL can rest up! Wishing y'all the best!

  16. Oh my cereal porn. A man who understands the extreme importance of cereal is a keeper. Lucky SL. And I hope the bun is OK and that she is getting all the rest she will undoubtedly need, what with soon to be 4 boys and all.

  17. Day 1. The face says it all - mornings are for suckers.
    Day 2. Oh, vomit bowls...ruining the chance of it ever becoming a popcorn bowl.
    Day 3. YUM!
    Day 4. We scraped 8 layers of wallpaper off when we moved in - and each layer kept getting worse. The dark gray with giant pink, yellow, and white flowers was the "winner"!
    Day 5. Hospitals aren't the most fun, but glad to hear the bun is getting the time needed.

    Have a great weekend!!!!!!!

  18. Poor Liam, poor Mama, poor Captain. I hope next week brings a little more peace. Glad Mom and Baby are fine... we'll keep a good thought for all...

  19. You removed the tactical defense wallpaper? Now what's going to protect you from terrorist attack which, according to the Republicans, could happen RIGHT FREAKING NOW!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow, busy week of unhappiness in the mornings,unhappiness of wallpaper, unhappiness of puking and unhappiness in the hospital. Here's to hoping next week is more lively and exciting.

    I love the morning face!! That's a treasured picture.

  21. That bowl of cereal made me hungry. We used to do that in college. Now I can only mix when the LG is out of sight, otherwise I'd be mixing 9 boxes of cereal for him every freaking day.

    And wallpaper? Is a punishment for something we did wrong in a past life.

    Best wishes to SL and the littliest.

  22. I hope everything is ok....with all of you!!!

  23. I personally think that's how everybody should look in the morning. Those cheery types make me run and hide! All the best to mom, bun, and the rest of the family!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You are having quite the week! Keeping fingers and toes crossed for the babe to stay put and stop freaking you out.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bleh, this week sounds like utter shite! D:
    Best wishes for your wife, I hope she's doing better soon!

    P.S.: Your Son is no Diva, he just isn't into getting up early!!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well NOW how are you going to survive the tactical nuclear strike?

    I mean...not that I ordered one or anything.

    Hope SL is enjoying her "rest".

    ReplyDelete
  27. Don't forget to bring SL edible food while she's there.

  28. Hope mom & baby are doing well!

  29. Thinking of you all and sending good thoughts for SL and the bun.

  30. Dude that's my same look every morning as I head into work. I would give anything to go school.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The fruity cheerio's look completely out of place in there. Like Paris Hilton at a birkenstock convention. Hospitals are no fun (I should know,I work in one). Hope SL and bun are out of there soon!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a lovely post, Captain.
    And your wife? She's no dummy. Looks perfectly quiet and peaceful in there....

  33. Uh, what the hell? Is SL ok? Now I'm worried. And who is making all of your delicious pastries for you with her laid up in bed?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Quite the week you had there. I'm pretty sure that cereal had some kind of butterfly effect and set off a chain reaction somewhere.

    Luck to SL!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Poor everyone! I really, truly hope that the bun is safe and sound and that you all are holding up OK.

    ReplyDelete
  36. So are the wonder pets "on their way to help the bun in the oven and save the day?"

    The might not be too big and not too small but they sure as hell are annoying.

    I am serious!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow. That is one hecka bowl of cereal!

    Peace and hugs to Supreme Leader and Bun. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Mornings make me feel mutinous too. Especially if I have to be up early to go somewhere I don't like going. Grrr. I wish I had exciting cereal.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That cereal looks delicious!

    Sending lots of positive thoughts to you, Supreme Leader, Liam and Bun.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Possibly the MOST random post EVER... but that's why I love you. Hope SL is doing well... give her a big hug from me. Tell the boys to behave or I'm going to drive up there and pinch them!

  41. Having recently been tethered to a hospital bed via many plastic tubes (one of which was an IV)for ten days, I have to send my best thoughts to Supreme Leader. And the bun. The look of dread on your son's face makes me laugh.

  42. All my best to your wife and the bun.

  43. hehe. I love the Diva look. That boy has promise.
