My kids love Sesame Street. They grew up watching Elmo and Abby teach them all sorts of things. Even I grew up watching these furry monsters. Bert and Ernie were a big favorite of mine, along with Cookie Monster. They were great back then just as they are today. Seeing them live will be very exciting for the kids! So be sure to grab your tickets and use the code provided to get a discount on your ticket purchase!

We will be at the show so be sure to say hi if you see us. My son is hoping he see’s Murray running around. I kinda am too as I think he is a great character that wasn’t around when I was little. So grab your tickets and Let’s Party!

St. Louis Dad was compensated with complimentary tickets to the show in exchange for promotion of the event.

Bouncing Off The Walls Again

IMG_8437Whoa, it’s not just a popular Sugarcult song, it’s my life right now. After a few rounds fighting off the bugs going around it appears as though the kids and myself have started to bounce off the walls. It’s great to feel back to normal and not coughing at the most inconvenient times, (like when you have food in your mouth, or talking to someone)…

I am happy that my family seems to be getting back on track and pushing these bugs out of our house. It had been a rough couple of weeks, getting woken up in the middle of the night to clean up a mess. It wasn’t fun and probably never will be, but you do what you have to do for your kids and you don’t complain.

Seeing my kids out for the count is heartbreaking. Cuddles are in high demand when the kids are sick. So my wife and I soak it up as much as we can. When the kids are feeling fine they never want to cuddle. They want to play and break free. But with sickness, it’s like cuddles are a requirement. So I will take as many as I can get.

A few of those days were pretty rough. Even me and my wife caught a little bit of something. We pushed through and managed to get better quickly but the kids, they took it the hardest this time around.

All in all I am happy everyone is on the mend and things are seemingly getting back to normal. Spring has brought some nice weather with it so I think it’s time to grab the skateboards and get outside to expel some of that pent up energy.

After a battle against sickness, what does your family do to rise back up? Comment below or hit tweet at me!

Abby Doodles TV – Episode 10 – Season One Finale

Well, it’s finally coming to an end. Season one at least. Back in August of 2014 my daughter and I started making a some videos. It was nothing serious and we didn’t spend a lot of time on setup or anything of that nature. I wasn’t even sure how well this would all come together. To be perfectly honest, not much has come out of any of this. We probably spent too long in between each episode to actually build a following.

So here we are, a little over two years later and we are closing out season one. When we first started this show Abby did not know how to read at all and could barely write her own name. Now she’s writing some sentences and can read at her age level so we are ready to start planning for season two. Abby and I discuss her show a lot and we have some good ideas for season two, now we just need to put the plan into action and actually film some episodes. We are hoping to start the next season this summer, so be sure to subscribe and be on the look-out for that. There is talks of a new intro and theme song, but we will have to see about all of that. For now though, enjoy season one for what it is and expect some great new things in season two!
