Day 1600

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1600…Duh. Some of you may have figured out the diaper date thing.  For those who haven’t – since I’m not smart enough to figure out a star date or anything cool like that, I date the log based on the days since I changed my first diaper (yes there … Read more


Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1597…or something like that.  Sleep is the final frontier. I read Facebook statuses from friends about these things called “naps”, or “sleeping in”.  I have forgotten what these experiences are like.  When your first child is born they encourage you to nap when the child naps.  This is sage … Read more

Splish Splash

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1595.  The mornings have been a bit of a struggle.  The eldest feigns sleep and refuses to get out of bed thus delaying our daily launch.  I have resorted to tickling and will escalate to pouring buckets if water if necessary.  The diaper dweller, ever present in ky arms … Read more

Dora Ain’t Gangsta

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles.

My Great Nephew Inspires Deep Thoughts

Captain’s Log, Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1580. The Captain got to meet his great nephew last night. It is always funny how a parent’s immediate reaction, when holding a new baby, is to try and remember their child(ren) being that size.  The great nephew is a handsome young man.  The only knock against him is … Read more

Mobile, Agile, Hostile…

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1579.  And the world, as we know it, is ending. The diaper dweller is now able to crawl – not well, but he is indeed mobile. He has not synced his movement yet, it’s not the most coordinated movement, but it is progress. We have been preparing for this … Read more
