I'm still on the fence about using a leash on our kids. Andrew is the one who needs it, but we would probably have to get one for Emma because she would feel left out much like the time we also had to buy her a jock strap. My ambivalence about the leash stems from my feeling that you should allow your child to explore while you take the responsibility to keep an eye on him. The only good thing about having your kid on a leash is that you can let him take a dump in your neighbor's yard and blame it on a stray dog.
I enjoy doing this silly blog for the most part. At the end of the day, I'll bring my laptop into bed and type for 15-20 minutes. After I'm done, I'll download some porn, video chat with my various mistresses around the world, and then go to sleep. But as most of you are aware of, there are days when this blog just does not get posted for various reasons -- writer's block, long day at work, Andrew pooped on the keyboard.
Although it may take me 15-20 minutes to write an entry, what usually stumps me is what to write every day. It is much easier to write the blog when I'm Mr. Mom because I get new material constantly. But when I go back to work and only see the kids for thirty minutes total, it's harder to come back with new stuff; this explains why I rely on Crazy Grandma Ichikawa stories.
When I'm behind a few days, I still catch up and make sure I have an entry for every day. But is this necessary? Is it okay to skip a Cartoon Wednesday or Lazy Grandpa Ichikawa story here and there? What do you think?
