Like a boss.

in Love, lowercase b, Parenting

Take your iPad in the bathroom… like a boss.

Pretend to like European soccer… like a boss.

Coach T-Ball… like a boss.

Eat a Fiber One Bar… like a boss.

Call the kids the wrong names, get flustered, then make up one long word that sounds like all the names mushed together and call everyone that… like a boss.

Drink from the carton even though he’s sick and I asked him not to because I get yeast infections when I take antibiotics… like a boss.

Do dad stuff… like a boss.

I mentioned loving these cool squirrel grabbing at your nuts sweats a few weeks ago, and the rad ass people at CrotchGear sent me a pair.
Andy then stole them and wears them almost everywhere, including  Target and to my mom’s house for Sunday Dinner.
I’ve never been so proud.

Gigi looks so much like you, that it’s like you were shrunk and it’s you in the picture!

Love the sweats! Some people are so creative!

I read something the other day that said, “I have bigger balls than you… so big I have to keep them on my chest to prevent chaffing.” I was thinking it would be a great t-shirt idea!


Brittany June 15, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Make that t-shirt, I would totally wear it!

That pic is made of awesome! Gigi loves her Daddy, too cute. And the squirrel pants are fan-freaking-tastic. Love them.

The way Gigi is holding on to Andy in this photo makes me think of your tat(gravity) and the meaning behind it. In this photo, it is Gigi (representing you and the children) who is “gravity” for Andy. Made me teary. :)

Those sweats are awesome!!!

Totally wish I would have saw those sweats in time for Father’s Day. Love them! They are definitely going on the Christmas list.

My husband wears his freaking plaid flannel jammies to work EVERY SINGLE DAY! Drives me bananas. Then he’ll come home, shower and put on clean plaid flannel and go out and run errands in them.

I’m buying those pants too! They are AWESOME! And what a lil cutie Gigi is!


Jules June 15, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Damn You! Because now I’m gonna need to buy Hubby some crotch gear pants. You know, for work. He already owns a t-shirt that has a squirrel guarding his food saying, “Protect your nuts.”


Nikki Nicholas Mohamed June 16, 2012 at 12:09 pm

DAMMITMAN! Now I’m going to have to go order pants off of because those pants are just too cool for words.

Gigi is gorgeous! She is definitely your Mini-Me.
