This is an awhile ago picture of Dad cos Mom's new super duper camera won't download any pictures yet, and she is still waiting on help in the form of an email, or letter, or something.  That is why baby gussie still looks like a baby in all the pictures.


Dad is in a little bit of trouble with mom and it concerns the carpeting in the bathroom.  Mom threatened last night to buy him a belly band that they make for boy dogs if he didn't start hitting the target, whatever that means.  Sometimes mom gets real grouchy about things that Dad thinks is not tracking in mud on the rug, not letting his beer run over the side of the glass as he is walking across the floor, and not wiping his fishy icky hands on his pants while he is fishing.  Mom sounds like a old grouch doesn't she.  Maybe she just needs a good nights sleep....I suggest dad sleep in the utility room with us and Mom get the whole bed to herself.  Thats my cure for the whole thing!

  1. I do feel bad for dad, but someone has to keep up the standards and that generally falls to mommies. It was nice of you to offer him shelter, Stella Rose. You're a good daughter.

  2. Uh oh. Dad's in the dog house. I know, bathrooms are just the messiest with men. They are just slobs in general I think :) Hope you guys have a good day!

    Poor dad indeed. many many years ago my mom had a friend who was trying to potty train her son to stand at the potty and NOT miss.
    So she put colored construction paper cut into circles in the toilet...they had a game called hit the red, hit the yellow etc.
    Maybe your mom can try that.

  8. Dads don't seem to understand these things about mud and other icky stuff. They are missing the "clean gene" sometimes I think. I'm afraid I have no answers! Just glad we don't have carpet in our bathroom. :)

  9. Your mom is hysterical... a BELLY BAND fur your DAD... BAAAAWAAAAH

  10. We're with the Ambassadors of Love, you sleep with Mom and Dad can have the utility room!

  11. Stella Rose, don't be so hard on your mom---those are the worst dad habits ever!!!! His mom should have trained him up better when her was young!

    My mom thinks I am pretty perfect cuz I am neat and don't use the restroom on the floors and walls!!! She said no! So I just said okay! Maybe your dad can do it too!

  13. Stella, please tell your Dad that he can come over to our house and floof all he wants here. Seems to be what the guy's around here do. He'll fit in just fine!

  14. Well, I bet they'll get it all worked out. You guys be the peace makers!


  15. My MOM wipes her hands on her fishing pants all the time when she is fishing. It's not like we have a sink out there. hehehhe. Butt my MOM thinks the belly band is a funny idea and a good one.

  16. LOL, too funny. This house raised 3 boys, so we've heard about aiming....
    The carpet that was in the bathrooms in this house left years ago!!
    Maybe Dad just needs some lessons.

    And thanks for visiting our blog! It's been awhile since hu-mom was typing for us and we hope she will continue.

    Drools and licks,

  18. If the boys miss the mark, the boys have to clean the mess. Period. That teaches 'em. Even if they don't learn, they're still the ones doing the cleaning.
