Matthew Strikes

We have a set of wooden, interconnected “roads”, similar to the Brio train tracks.  Matthew loves them, but sometimes struggles to put them together.  Benjamin loves his snacks (he is my son).  Today, Matthew didn’t finish his snack and Ben asked if he could finish them.  Matthew told him he […]

Some Additional First Day Stuff

A couple of things I forgot from yesterday: As I have previously said, a little girl he has been in day care with since they were infants is also in the catholic school with him.  Well, as we were driving to school on his first day, he said, “I am […]

Little Know-It-Alls

Tonight we were watching the hour-long “Dinosaur Train Under the Sea” when Benjamin tells me that it isn’t the hour long one.  (Side note on Dinosaur Train…My sons’ two favorite things have been trains and dinosaurs and I think the same holds true for a majority of boys, so I […]

Hard Times and the Boys

We are in the process of selling our house and buying a new house.  As I am sure most people can testify, it is a very stressful time with some days being more stressful than others.  Last night and today was one of those days in the Keenan household.  Andrea […]

I’ll Still Be Cute

Benjamin Turns Five

Five years ago, Andrea and I sat on the floor of, what was then, the nursery, sorting through diapers and doing some last minute cleaning of the room.  We nervously fussed over different things and talked about how the following day would play out.  We were due the following morning […]

Buy the House

We’ve been trying to sell our house since March and eventually, we would get the kids help us with getting the house ready for showings.  As Benjamin liked to say, he and Matthew would go up and fix their beds, otherwise known as “making them fancy”. In the last couple […]
