A Moment of Honesty

It's no secret that the posting schedule has been delayed as of late.

I hadn't really commented on it simply because I didn't think anyone really visited the site often enough to notice.

It has been both humbling and encouraging to receive messages to the contrary.

When I first started writing on this site, I made a promise to myself that I would keep all stories true and brutally honest, regardless of how they may paint my abilities (or lack thereof) as a father.

You see, it is incredibly easy and dangerously tempting to make up stories about the things a 3 year-old does and says.  I spend the entire day alone with him.  Who could possibly prove the truth?  Sippy Cup?  He still has a hard time feeding himself.

Nevertheless, I felt that I would not only be betraying my integrity by inventing stories but, ultimately, the entire point of this site as well. I want this to be a chronicle for Sippy Cup to look back on when he's much older.  A diary of sorts, detailing the time he spent at home driving his dad insane.

With that said, Sippy Cup has turned into a "WB Frog" of sorts lately and refuses to perform on command.

On most days (especially during the brutally cold days we've been experiencing in NYC), me and the little dude just lounge around the house, reading books, playing pretend and watching cartoons.  To me, this isn't anything really worth writing about.

Regardless, I have started to feel rather guilty about not writing or posting so, until the stories start happening, I will just post pictures that I am particularly fond of and the random comic strip here and there.

I will do this partly to assuage my guilt.

But, mostly, to keep you guys happy.

After all the love and support you have shown, it is the very least I can do.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Every blog hits a slow point. The stories are enjoyable, though. How goes leveraging the cake making into a business?

I check your post 2 or 3 time a day. I enjoy anything you write, and love your little boy.Don't worry if you can not post real often, we'll all be here when the next one shows up.
