Belle: Daddo, you have bacon on your sandwich. You don’t put bacon on sandwiches. Daddo: Uh, I beg to differ. You can put bacon on everything. Belle:………..yeah, like on your plate.

HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO FOR A BENCH SEAT? When we were car shopping three years ago, our final two vehicles were the Kia Sorento and the GMC Terrain. We chose the Sorento but we liked the styling of GMC back then. Apparently we still do. General Motors named GMC furthered its initiative to make […]
HITTING THE RESET BUTTON The Armada changed things for our search. The two of us didn’t think that we needed that much space in a vehicle. But your stance changes when you’re able to comfortably put car seats in and out of a car without having to play Jenga in the process. Cars taken off […]
THERE AIN’T NO ROOM FOR BORING, BUT THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (Car seat In the back) I love these commercials because I too ain’t got no room for boring. But The Muppets can’t put in another tether in the third row seating, which is only available in the middle seat of the back […]
THE PATH TO NOWHERE AND AN UNEXPECTED PLAYER The Pathfinder was the realistic leader of the pack coming into this search. After getting into it with three car seats and playing around with it, it is not a reasonable option for us. Here are the pros. The Pathfinder does fit three car seats across. It […]
UNFORTUNATELY GOING WHERE PLENTY HAVE (Begrudgingly) GONE BEFORE Now when my wife and I were newly weds we made a pact. There was no blood taken or lambs sacrificed. We simply agreed that under no circumstance whatsoever would we ever, ever, ever ever ever ever ever, get a minivan. We were naive. Very naive. And we […]
THE PIZZAZZ-LESS COCKPIT Our first stop of this journey towards comfort and capacity sent was the Honda Pilot. A very capable vehicle. My parents have an older model, I’d say around 2000. It runs nice. No major repairs. Interior has held up well. It’s big but drives small. This edition appears that it will be […]
THE SEARCH FOR A NEW NULLA RATIONE (Mode of Transportation) We have searched high and low for a solution to our latest family dilemma. Now that we are expanding to three children, how in the world do we get all of those car seats comfortably into a vehicle that is NOT a minivan? Can we […]
So I previously posted about the Nina Needs To Go shorts that appear on Disney Junior and how they are counterproductive. I would like to now applaud the short Can You Teach My Crocodile Manners? It’s setup is one of teaching and they provide options for the youngsters/viewers to select which approach to a situation […]
Does anyone know of a full size sedan’s that can fit three car seats?
Is this Old McDonald’s? Belle, in the drive thru of the Golden Arches
While I can appreciate the intent of this short (teaching children to go potty before they REALLY have to go), I don’t think it’s successful in its mission. We’ve been teaching Belle to go potty on her own for a while now and are making incredible progress. However, the cartoon short is inadvertently teaching her […]
Bug: (crying and crying and crying in the car and then…silence) Bell: Bug stopped crying. Bug: ….(crying commences again) Bell: Bug is crying again!
It’s amazing what adding one more child will do in the dynamic of a household. The extra noise, the extra cries, the extra whines. During the course of the day. Also the tornado that seems to hit anywhere toys are located. I’m just sayin’
That car is wet….because it’s raining outside. Primera, stating the obvious
Big girls don’t eat dinner, big girls play with their toys! Primera, 2 and a half, at the dinner table
So I am starting this blog as a father that happens to stay at home with his two little girls (referred to as Primera and Segunda). I can see why a blog would be a nice outlet for a male to vent or ponder on the web, but I’m just going to give you a glimpse […]
