The Dude has been on hiatus. A fantastic voyage to San Antonio, TX this week set the posting back a bit. Time to catchup. Little Dude developments, the end of Princess’ soccer season, Halloween, a new Dude Knows Best installment, “Princess Pixels”…lots in store to makeup for the time off.
The journey was actually a business trip full of, well, business. While San Antonio is a nice city, given the workload and lack of free time, I wouldn’t really qualify the trip as a fantastic voyage , but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to reference Coolio. (Although I did ride a mechanical bull…including a cowboy hat, sit on a 2k pound bull named Oreo, and visit the Alamo!…sort of fantastic, I guess.)
While I was off gallivanting around the Lone Star state, Mrs. Dude was left on her own for four days to hold down Casa de Dude, manage the dogs, and regulate the rug-rats. Quite the task. Thanks Mrs. Dude. I’m happy to report that everyone survived in one piece.
However, while I may have been on hiatus, Little Dude was not. Gone for four days, and L.D. decides to start feeding himself?! Really Little Dude? You’re going to go and grow up while I’m not here to watch it?! You need to slow your roll. Daddy needs to see this kind of stuff in person.
As much as I can’t wait for him to be older so we can do all sorts of Dude/Little Dude stuff, it’s tough to see this little guy getting so big so quick. I guess life is full of great paradoxes.
Keep on keepin’ on Little Dude.
