I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

HO - Ho - Hostess!!

Well I made it 7 weeks. Lylli is 7 weeks old today - My wife and daughter slept on the couch in the living room for seven weeks leaving me the bed to myself. I've been warned that tonight they're coming back in. Oh well, it was one heck of a run and lets be honest, most guys would have had to move to the couch thmesleves or at the very least would have never gotten that much time, so I'll count my blessings. I took the dogs for a walk last night -- turned it into a run -- not a very long one, but I'm going to count it nonetheless. Tonight is Christmas at the Delaney's -- just the three of us and toys/bones for the dogs. I already gave Carrie her camera so her fun tonight will basically consist of watching me open gifts -- sometimes I start to wonder if I'm really as big of a jerk as it comes out when I explain these things. Got Christmas at my mom's place tomorrow night and bringing the kid to see Santa. I was going to go to the game on Sunday, but with. Pete. the plumber coming on Monday, I now will spend my Sunday listening to the game while I tear out the basement shower and some sheetrock.

The diet is not going well -- didn't make my goal weight this week, but like I said before, hopefully It'll catch up eventually -- probably not when I eat a banana chocolate chip muffin for breakfast and a greasy burger and fries from L Phillips for lunch -- but what could I do, my step-brother was buying - don't blame me - blame Christmas!
