Updates and Such

So whats new in Baby Daddy Land?

- LMS started spending alternate weekends with her mom. 1st time was last weekend, I wish I could say I did some crazy wild shit but I just stayed in the house. My first free weekend in over 9 months and I sat on the couch. It was over 100 degrees everyday that weekend, it felt good to chill in the quiet. Besides I'll have plenty more weekends to do ignorant stuff.

- Speaking of those weekends it went off without any drama. LMS had a good time and besides an email from my baby momma that I just ignored, it was uneventful.

- LMS turned 7. We had a party at her summer camp, I bought cupcakes because making them for 44 kids didn't seem like fun. Kids don't care if a cupcake is store bought or homemade. I also made gift bags, this is huge you have no idea.

- My mom came over with some dresses she made for LMS... I love my mom but this Obama dress was a bit much. She said she was making it for the 4th of July but got behind.

I don't even know where she found Obama fabric from! In other news I might sell it on ebay during his re-election campaign lol

- I bought LMS a Nintendo DS for her birthday. By far the best gift I have ever gotten her, its awesome and holds her attention. Having that around adds to my sanity.

- I had every intent to take the baby to Ocean City this summer buy my knee is still bothering me and walking the boardwalk is the last thing I want to do. Its getting better though so it still might happen. I think she would love it.

- Its Back to school time and I have a list of school supplies. I pray this year is smooth sailing since all the custody drama is behind us. I need to do a better job being active at the school and letting the teaching know who I am. 2nd grade should be fun.

Speaking as a single custodial parent, I spend many weekends doing absolutely nothing! It is a great way to recharge.

BTW, I love seeing a man raising his child. Kudos to you!

I'm stuck on the Obama fabric! LOL

Wow gift bags for 44 kids is huge.

You have to take a picture of LMS in the dress even if it's just to show your mom that it fit. LOL

The Obama fabric, huh? I guess that's one of the not-so-better dresses you were talking about, lol. It's the thought that counts.

Don't get me started on school supplies. Buddha's list has 16 COMMUNITY items and 6 personal items. Then his teacher wants TWO of everything on the community list. Word? It's like that?

Yes, I agree with Remnants. Take a pic of LMS in the dress. Proof that she actually put it on.

That Obama fabric is hilarious, lol. Even if she never wears it - you can frame it or something...???

Your mommy is a sweet heart. I'm still learning to sew but I want to make some stuff for a couple little girls I know. I'll be sure to steer clear of the Obama fabric though. LMAO

I love that your a great dad. Its such a rare thing to see these days. I applaud you for it.

I wish I could have been there to see your mom give you that dress for your daughter. It had to be priceless. She did a great job, but like you said where did she find that fabric. lolol

Tell your mom I would like a dress. You are an awesome father!

I so applaud you for this Dave. I don't know any other men that are taking on the responsibility you are. You're a good man. I LOVED when my dad came to school functions he would always be in his cop uniform. The kids loved it. I was just happy he was my dad.

I can't even focus past the Obama fabric...where your mama get dat from! LOL!

I would hang it on a doll or something in LMS room. Or maybe she can wear it for Black History week at her school this year.

I can't focus past the Obama material!
