One of the tactics we have learned to employ in our lives as early parents, is the commando crawl. I remember thinking back to how cute it was when Hammy pulled this off. It was just before he learned to crawl. Well, now, he has an open crib…and he has a game, he cries, you
No joke, I’ve seen Mom at 3AM…she actually looks like that. Child and dog accessories included!
To say that kids get really mobile really fast is an understatement. I remember when we could put Hammy down and he just wouldn’t go anywhere. He couldn’t…and life was good. Now….god forbid a guy needs something in the attic!
When I get thirsty, I drink what’s in the fridge that seems most cold and refreshing. I don’t really read labels except for checking for cranberry juice. Cranberry juice can go to he11. Sometimes this leads to a scenario where I am yelled at…sometimes justifiably, and frequently this is because I’m drinking something purchased specifically

It’s not an irregular occurrence to come home and find a sneaker next to the mayonnaise in our cupboard, or the milk in Hammy’s closet. These are things that happen when you are a parent, and you can’t change that. My recommendation…refrigerate everything you possible can!
More than once a month, I wake up in my bed, and my wife (Mom) is very, very mad at me. I consider myself to be a good husband. I’m not without my shortcomings, but I love my wife and family. I do the best that I can to make sure everyone is happy, and
As with all things on the GeekDadLife, I strive to bring you the truth wherever I find it. I like to bring you real stories, real ideas, things that actually happened. As with most of the other “The Geeks”…this is another actual. Introducing, Mema. Hammy’s grandmother (on the Dad side). She’ll spend hours echoing the
