Most people either love or hate AutoCorrect on their cell phone. However, no matter how you feel about AutoCorrect it definitely can make any text message more interesting.

Earlier today, I sent my wife a text message asking her if she were coming home for lunch. I just never expected her to be eating "frozen dinosaur." 

I think I am up to the challenge, and it looks like I now will get to try and smoke a brachiosaurus on my grill!!

My 4 year-old son has been learning sign language in school. However, I don't think waving the middle finger at people means hello (another child told him it did). Sigh

I am going to be in so much trouble....

My son is listening to silly kids song's from the 1950's and 1960's. I have him convinced that his mom was there to help write the song's. I just aged her 20 plus year's in a matter of minutes. I am going to be in the dog house but sometimes a good joke requires a little pain..... LOL

A GOOD REASON TO PROOF WHAT YOU WRITE!!!

We just got our first Target in town, and the local paper was happy to write an article about the grand opening!!!

However, does anyone else notice the massive TYPO in the headline????

I had to share this.....LOL

Parenting Fact #9

Sometimes it's a good thing that parents don't know what children are thinking.

If a parent actually knew what a child was thinking, it is entirely possible that no one would have children!

I have been working on a lot of projects lately and writing less for a couple of reasons. 

I know this is the last summer my little boy will be "just" my little boy (he starts school in August). I wanted to share some of my love for these type things with him. 

I also know I am going to miss him immensely. I will have a lot of extra time and I won’t know what to do with myself. 

Life for my family is about to change forever.... 

Don't worry I am still writing and not quitting I am just moving my focus around a little bit and will share about how hard it can be on a dad when their only child goes to school.

You will survive but I warn you, there might be tears. When my baby went to kindergarten, I cried buckets. Then I got used to having extra time for me, and the time with her was even more precious when she got home each day. Hang in there! <3

All of us have made some real blunders in life….it's what we do with them that counts!
Introduction

Howdy!  Welcome to my page!  I am Aaron and I am Xander’s dad (A.K.A Dada)  If you made it this far you might just want to know a thing or two about me.

I am a fun, loving, cowboy boot wearing stay-at-home dad!  I think that explains me in a nutshell.  I have a degree in Social Work and I was the person that every parent dreads seeing.  No, I wasn’t the Social Worker that collects taxes.  I was the one that was called when something bad happened to a child.  I got to try and help figure out what happened exactly.  It wasn’t a glamorous job.  Honestly, it could be a really depressing job a lot of the times.  I saw humanity at it’s worst.

I am married to a wonderful woman, Melissa.  We have been together for over 20 years and married for almost 17 of them.  We have one little boy (Xander) and we are blessed to have him in our life.  You might be asking now….”okay if your so blessed why do you have just one child?”  I will tell you…we were some of those people others whisper about that had fertility problems. 

Now if your still with me, I want to thank you for sticking around!  You will often find me on Facebook, Google Plus or Twitter talking to other parents and answering questions.  So, feel free to hit me up if you have one!
