Fondue Friday 

For anniversaries with the wife we would normally go to the Melting Pot. Since we had kids that doesn’t tend to happen anymore. So we bring the fondue to us. Yesterday was our 9th anniversary. Following tradition I went and got all the ingredients to do the chocolate fondue as we have done for the last few years. Only this year Amma surprised us and babysat the kids so we could go to dinner. Since we didn’t get to do it on our anniversary we figured let’s include the girls and make it a family night. So I present to you Fondue with the DadStayedHome clan. ​

We could all learn a little

It doesn’t matter how she slept the night before.  She doesn’t care if she isn’t felling great.  The weather doesn’t dictate it.  She is just thrilled when she gets to go to Happy School (preschool).  When Kendall knows that she is going to school for the day it just makes her ecstatic.  I could learn something from that kid.  Everyday should be this for me. Life is awesome so lets go have fun.  This is what I am working towards.  #1shot

Brushing hair

If you had told me that one day I would be sitting on the couch brushing a little girl’s hair and enjoying it, I never would have believed you in a million years. I didn’t imagine my life like this. I never imagined I would be a stay at home dad.  I always imagined a life with kids, a wife, house full of animals and all of the things that I have.  I never imagined it would be like this though.  I never imagined that brushing your daughter’s hair could be so uplifting that it erases everything stressful that went on that day. I never could have imagined that this is what being a dad is like. Now it pains me to imagine the day that I no longer get to brush that little girl’s hair.
