You actually WANT to give him a Dora CD? Just so you can listen to her repeat every sentence 4 times, just to drive you insane? I think that the creators of Dora were in a cellar in Mexico, trying to find the number of times that a little Mexican girl would have to say something in Spanish to drive the Gringos insane.

I thought that my son was a vampire with his sharp fangs. Good to see he's not the only kid with the capability to drain your blood at a moment's notice.

Yeah I was all about voting or dying until I got up at 5:45 this morning only to stand in a line for two hours while old assholes and morons took a "voting booth vacation." If people are going to vote then they should know for who before they step behind that curtain. And all I got was this lousy sticker I'm NEVER taking off this shirt.

I love extreme home makeover too. I have cried at every one of them. I missed it last night cause my husband was home. But I'll watch it later :) Have an awesome week and Happy Birthday Andrew :)

You know UB, you could just set up a big, glorified "play date" and call it a birthday party. I've done that (I write "no gifts necessary" on the invites), at least then he can play with the other kids. At that age is isn't about the present yet, anyway.

I can't hear myself crying over all of Ty's yelling. Hasn't that dude ever heard of an inside voice? The cornball factor gets a little high on that show, but they do good work.

I voted! Stop badgering me already! And its none of your business who I voted for. Yes, I know I'm not intelligent enough to make my own choices. Do you want me to just hand you my ballot next time so you can vote for me? Oh, sorry, you're not the MIL, are you? --- Oh, and the kid will grow into the bike. My kid didn't get on his for over a year after we bought it. Now he rides it constantly and has even learned a few tricks to scare the crap out of his mother.

I voted, too. This was the first year in Georgia that we could vote early, and it took forfuckingever. Three hours, 25 minutes. I don't have my sticker anymore, because I wore it Friday. I want to get a label for my shrt that says "I stood in line for three and a half hours LAST WEEK, bitches, so quit asking."

Andrew is just the cutest kid. 4 is such a fun age. And the bike? You'll get your money's worth by next summer, the latest. My 4 year old has had his since August and hasn't touched it, but my 5 y/o has worn her's out in the past 6 months. =) And I voted early and often.

Studid EM:HE. I cry every time too. I hate crying! And I'd vote, if I were American. Instead I'll cross my fingers and hope.

I voted but got no sticker. So not only did I wait in line forever, but I also have to deal with all the morons asking me when I'm going to vote (or die). Happy Birthday Andrew! I don't have kids, so I'm generally unaware of the passage of time until I read something like this. I could have sworn it was just last month I read your letter to your unborn son!

Dear God - I just bought my son the new baby Einstein - Baby Noah - and he has watched it FOUR times since yesterday at noon. Brace yourself.

i cant believe you decided to do something, then asked your wife if it was ok. so because of this Uncle Bob, i'm voting for your wife to give you your manhood back. oh, and nice family portrait in the background, thats good stuff.

When that one little Extreme Makeover girl says "My heart was beeping very fast" I even cried during the rerun.

"But is it MY FAULT that she views her Bible Study as more important than her son's birthday??" Lessee, you live in the south, and the missus is skipping her son's birthday for Bible Study. Based on these demographic factors, I'm guessing she's voting Bush/Cheney. She just cancelled out your vote UB.

Did anyone else notice the family portrait in the back? Very cute. One big, happy, dysfunctional family.

I got in line at 6:57 and was out of there by 7:28 this morning. Fast and easy. But no sticker; why didn't I get a sticker? :( Extreme Makeover Home Edition ROCKS! and jerks my tears every time.

Andrew is 4? Already? Wow. He's such a cutie. And, I too love Extreme Makeover Home Edition. It's a tear jeaker without a doubt. Oh, and I voted, of course.

Amy - 2004-11-02 13:23:03
I voted. I got a sticker. I stood in line with an antsy two-and-a-half year old with no stroller for over two hours to get that damn sticker. That sticker was the light at the end of the long boring tunnel holding my son in some kind of check while I waited to vote. My son couldn't wait for that sticker. Where is my sticker now, you ask? In my son's digestive track, that's where.

Hi Uncle Bob I LOVE Extreme Makeover Home Edition. They just wrapped up a session in my hometown, Bakersfield, CA. They built a house and barn. It's set to air 21 November. The crew is awesome. They set up bleachers and allowed public gawkers to watch the building process. It was a BIG party the last night. Ty is HOT, HOT, HOT is person....

I voted, I waited for 15 minutes. Dumbass Republicans in front of me didn't know how to vote. I am happy to say my mom & I cancelled out their votes. EM:HE. cry like a newborn baby. Coming attractions even kill me. (deaf parents, blind son, that a two boxer) Andrew is to cute. Start saving for braces. I had fangs and braces.

Didnít notice the family portrait as I was much too taken with the notion that Andrew looked more like an Oompa Loompa than Elmo. Itís just as well that you have Democratic Daddy time with kiddo so as to mold him into a smart, liíl progressive whoíll be compassionate enough to take care of my sorry old ass. I heart absentee ballots: line, schmine. And Iíve got my own sticker basically saying thereís a village in TX missing its IDIOT.
