Since the inception of TRS in 2000, I have written about life "on the road". By plane, train, or automobile, I tell the story of trips; but the real story in each one is about the journey, not the destination. On March 15th, 2008, Daddy's Little Speed Bump was born. 21 months later, Speed Bump Number Two arrived. I thought it fitting to create a place, with a Road Scholars theme, to share this new journey.

News Release: Alyssa Achieves Lavatorial Milestone


Contact: Sean Genovese, President

At approximately 7:00 p.m. this evening, Alyssa Anne Genovese successfully deposited feces in a white porcelain toilet. The achievement comes after weeks of failed attempts and several hundred dollars in corporate expenditures for disposable "Pull-Up" diapers. Alyssa's parents are very proud, but her sister, Kaitlyn, is beside herself with excitement as the achievement comes with a reward: the movie Barbie: A Fairy Secret.

The event unfolded this evening after both Kaitlyn and Alyssa were sent upstairs to prepare for showers. Alyssa informed the household she had to go potty and was immediately instructed by Daddy to proceed. Daddy, himself having to pee, adjourned to a separate bathroom. Minutes later, Alyssa was running about the second floor of the corporate headquarters asking for toilet paper. As Daddy responded to the request, Alyssa informed him, "and I pooped." Visual evaluation confirmed that indeed a "brownish turd" of approximately one inch by one and a half inches was present in the receptacle.

Once visual confirmation was made, Daddy made an audible announcement to which Kaitlyn immediately responded. A celebration ensued which included the "Poo-Poo Dance" performed Gangnam Style. Following the dance, jammies were installed on all minors and a celebration was held in the company's media room, where attendees enjoyed a screening of the newly acquired Barbie movie with popcorn and hot chocolate. 

This development is expected to improve year-end corporate margins as the need for "Pull-Ups" declines. Recent costs associated with bringing new products to market has contributed to lower earnings on sales of the company's most recent product offering, Not Quite There.

I Don't Wanna Take A Nap!

When I left her, she was in her bed, I swear!


The Aftermath of Easter

Both of my girls are sick. High fevers, phlegmy coughs, runny noses, and nobody is sleeping. Well, at least not at the same time. With a houseful in town for Easter, the girls have been using the "princess bed" to bunk together in the same room (with Issa in her day bed and Kaitlyn in the princess bed). I finally got them medicated and quiet tonight only to hear talking coming from the room 15 minutes later. I walked in to find Issa passed out in the princess bed next to Kaitlyn, while Kaitlyn was a having a full-blown conversation with her. I guess it's better than talking to yourself.

Kaitlyn Is Famous

A recent project for one of my classes required the production of a YouTube video. The assignment was to create a video to generate awareness of a new--in our case fictional--idea, good, or service. Of course I used all the assets at my disposal.
