Random thoughts and comments are the best blogging material on the planet! They also serve the purpose of providing me with a permanent memory of cute, funny or unusual things said by my children while they are still quite young.
This ditty came from a six-year-old girl…
The bald spot on the top of your head is very soft…
Cats’ fur is also very soft…
What kind of fur does Hello Kitty have?
Do you know what’s bad? Jealousy is bad…
Bullying is bad too.”
Me: “Did they teach you in that at school?”
Her: “No, I just knew that.”
Last summer our boys were at overnight camp for a month, and our daughter for only 2-weeks, and while attending a Maker event, our Boo came face-to-face with a friend that she had never met before.
Love this photo!
Boo and R2D2.
To think some kid made this! Awesome! I think Linus would love this!
My 7-year-old daughter asked me this question in the car the other day;
“Daddy, why does everyone hate Donald Trump?”
Seeking an age appropriate response, I paused then said, “Because he is disrespectful to women.”
My daughter then replied; “Oh, so he’s like Miles in my class. He’s disrespectful to us. He calls all the girls monkeys.”
Happy New Year, for all of us here at The Urban Daddy! Okay, so that’s just me, but it sounds better when it’s coming for a bunch of people, right?
You might have noticed a few changes around here if you arrive at the blog via the URL http://www.urbandaddy.wordpress.com. The theme and cover photo have been changed again and I’m taking this blog back to basics which means more content and less focus on what the heck I’m saying and how it’s being written.
I miss the old days when I would throw up a post and the only reader and only comment would be from my sister who would edit it for me in her comment. LOL.
You might also have noticed that little “R” inside a circle after “The Urban Daddy” and that is because I have registered the trademark “The Urban Daddy”. After 1200 posts covering over 12-years, it was only a matter of time, right?
Another new change is the URL. You can access this blog via http://www.theurbandaddy.ca as well, as I finally had enough time to activate that URL which I’ve owned for the past 5-years.
I hope everyone has a healthy, wealthy and peaceful 2017, and I’d like to end this post with a tidbit of wisdom from my now 7-year-old daughter, who blurted this out on New Years’ Day for some unknown reason;
“In order to have money and not be poor when you are older, you need to earn and save money now when you are young!”
A fiscal conservative at the core!
It’s Sunday morning and I have 2 of my 3 kids at home. My middle child was taken to the SkyZone Indoor Trampoline Park for an hour of jumping and bouncing excitement, and since he’s the one who plays school with our youngest, it means I have to find a way to convince my 9-year-old to do his homework and my 4-year-old to let him do his homework.
After some “discussions” or really “negotiations” my 9-year-old has finished his math homework for Spirit of Math and my 4-year-old has gone from playing with her toys, to sitting on me, to practicing piano and now to wandering the house looking lost.
At one point she sat beside me while I was typing and she was staring at the side of my head.
“Hi, what can I do for you?” I asked.
“You’re so Cool!” she replied. “You’re so cool, I can’t stop staring at you!”.
With that I have taken her to the basement to free her toys from the fort under the stairs, and set her off to set up her own area where she can play and have fun by herself while her brother and I dig into his social studies homework.
Anyone remember the dog from the TV show Frasier?
