Tucker got "fixed" yesterday. His vasectomy is now complete and he's wearing "scrotal support".  Gotta love that. Of course all of the animals and kids want to sit in Tucker's lap which isn't the most comfortable of things for him right now. Here's a conversation that we had last night when Oscar, the cat, jumped up in Tucker's ...

Usually when Cara and I disagree on a DVD it's because she's liking something that's crap and I'm having to sit through the stupid thing. That wasn't the case this time. THIS time we watched a DVD that was entertaining but not a dumbed down "baby" DVD. Click here to read the rest.

As you might have guessed from this post, Tucker's getting fixed. Am I the only one whose brain instantly goes to a dog being neutered?  Wonder if Tucker's going to have to wear one of those cones around his neck? I know he has to wear "scrotal support". When I read that I think of those support hose ...

Nap times and bedtime have never been easy things around our house. Whether Cara just lacks a need for a reasonable amount of sleep or if she's just determined to not sleep, the end result is the same: she's awake. A schedule helps and lots of warning about the impending time in her bed helps but neither ...
