WANTED: Booster Seat

WANTED: Booster Seat

Daa eee!

So as you all know, I shaved my head…and I have kept it shaved…and like it.  It is actually much easier to maintain and much more comfortable than having a head full of hair.  Anyways…

I was surprised that Ace didn’t really seem to notice though.  He did not look at me funny.  He did not want to touch the cue ball.  He acted like he didn’t even notice.  Maybe he is just like any other guy and doesn’t pay attention to details like when someone cuts or colors their hair.  I’ve been known to not notice Momma’s hair cuts before…maybe Ace just gets it honest??

Not a big deal.  Actually I’m glad he didn’t seem to notice.   I was afraid it would freak him out and he wouldn’t know who I was and run away from the bald guy!  😐

 However, we recently found out that he did notice.  He was watching TV with his Grandpa S. the other day when a Mr. Clean commercial came on.  Ace pointed at the TV and said “Daa eee” (Daddy in Ace lingo). 

"Daa eee!"

Maybe it was our other similarities (other than the shiny melon) that made Ace think that Mr. Clean was “Daa eee”…bulging muscles, tan skin, white eye-brows, and good looks?  😆  It’s a good theory…

A couple days later Momma and Grandma S. took Ace to the mall.  They were strolling along and Ace pointed at an older man with a shaved head and said “Daa eee!”  This guy was nothing like me or Mr Clean.  No bulging muscles, he was as pale as as a ghost, and definitely not a looker.  😆

Well, we can throw my previous theory out the window….

So now pretty much any man with a shaved head is “Daa eee!” 

Man, I hate competition… 😆

Bottle Free!

At Ace’s one year checkup with his doctor we were told to get him off of formula.  It was easy…we simply replaced the formula with milk. No biggie!

Well, Ace just recently went to his 18 month checkup (time flies!).  His doctor now wants him off of the bottle completely. Yikes!  That’s like taking…a ham bone from a hyena.  There is going to be a fight!

Here recently we have reduced Ace’s daily bottle usage down to 1 or 2 bottles…usually if/when he was extremely grumpy and always at bed time.

What?  You don’t think Ace gets grumpy?  You don’t think he throws fits? Why not?  Is it because he is always smiling in the pictures here on DadThing? Haha!  He has you fooled!

Don’t believe me yet?  How about this one…

So bedtime comes.  I start to get nervous…dreading the moment when Ace uncovers our plot to send him to bed without his long time bed time companion…the bottle!  I am preparing myself for a full on rebellion from the little guy.  I picture guns, grenades, tanks, infantry, maybe even an airborne assault…

…and instead I get nothing.  Not a peep.  Not a whimper.  Just a quiet sleeping Ace.

Hopefully he’s just not gathering his troops for an ambush tomorrow night.  😀


Happy Birthday Momma!

Momma turns 28 today!
( Hope I don’t get in trouble for revealing her age. 😀 )

I’ve been out of town all week for work and expect to get home tonight to celebrate her birthday.  I missed Momma’s Birthday last year.  So, just incase I get stuck out of town again I wanted to tell her Happy Birthday face-to-face…or as close as I can get to face-to-face.  😀

So without further ado…

Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday Dear Momma…
Happy Birtday To You!
