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.

The Case of the Dog Food Mischief

One of the nice things about living in my house is that I never have to concern myself with feeding the dog. Between mommy and the girls, the job somehow just gets done. Every now and then though, Detective Daddy has to get involved.

Almost two years ago, I walked in on the crime scene below.

I guess you could say that incident gave me a head start when I recently found the following scene:

This time I launched a full scale investigation. I've issued a BOLO for "because" and "I don't know", suspected to be hiding out together. They are not considered dangerous, but they are quite elusive and highly mischievous.

My Girls Like To Dance

Sporting some trendy new dance moves, Kaitlyn and Alyssa bust a move in the media room. The girls bring new meaning to "head banging".



Where Every Face Is On Parade

"Princess Kaitlyn" has become a normal part of life around our house. My daughter spends more time in her dress up clothes than her real, outside clothes. The other night was no exception. As I sat watching the news, Princess Kaitlyn announced to me that she was off to a masquerade party. Sometimes I forget I'm talking to a three year old. I fully expect to see "Phantom of the Opera" on her Christmas list this year.




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.


Just Like Me!

Kaitlyn walked for the first time about a month before her first birthday. Alyssa decided to wait until a little after hers. It seems the extra time means a steeper learning curve. The first few steps this morning were anything but timid; she already knows how to pivot. At this rate we'll be running marathons by month's end. Here is a collection of those first few steps, with encouragement and coaxing by her sister to "walk--just like me!"
