The other day, my daughter gleefully brought me her drawing tablet. She’s still getting comfortable drawing but loves asking me to call upon my considerable artistic talent to render various things.

Other times her request won’t be for “various things” so much as the same thing over and over and over.

The usual request playlist (on shuffle) includes: Donut. Ice Cream. Muffin. Popsicle.

She clearly inherited my sweet tooth.

This time she asked for something different.

Her: Dog

Me: “Sure!” … (draws a dog)

Her: (thoughtfully looks at dog)

Her: “Aww, puppy saaaaad.”

Me: “No. That’s a puppy.”

Her: “Puppy sad.”

Me: 😶


…maybe I’ll just stick to desserts?

Let me know the “worst” drawing you’ve ever made for your / a child, and how that was received!



Hi! I’m a proud father to girl/boy twin toddlers. Each day I am amazed with how much (and the ways in which) they…

  • Grow
  • Play
  • Create
  • Love
  • Eat, and eat
  • Telepathically plot to outsmart their mother and I

Parenting – especially for twins/multiple children – is such a breeze…said no one, ever.

No One, Ever

I originally considered journaling about my adventures as a dad to twins for both mindfulness and as a keepsake. Over time, I felt turning this into a blog could be a lot of fun.

I’d like to create a place for sharing observations, helpful products, parent wins, parent fails, funny moments, and more.

I’m not a parenting expert. But I am wise enough to know that…

  • raising children “takes a village”
  • “Many hands make light work”
  • “If you leave the Roku remote in your pocket and work at your makeshift standing desk in the living room your kids will sneak up to swap the remote for a wooden block, then attempt to silently slink away”

I hope some musings on this blog will resonate with your own experiences, maybe help provide a sanity check, and encourages constructive conversation in the comments.

Let’s be kind, support each other, and build a village 🙂
