Lessons learned at the ComicCon

Kaylee's getting one last run in the Spider-Man costume today. It barely fits, but we've donned it to better blend with Arizona's geeks.

We're surrounded by Stormtroopers, ninjas and a variety of overweight teens dressed in strange outfits that look more like pajamas than costumes.

I know I'm a dork, I dragged my family to a third-tier comic book convention after all, but there's just something about being surrounded by these people that makes you feel so much better about yourself.

And I think that's the lesson I hope Kaylee takes away from all of this.

You may not have a lot of money, you may not love your job, you may not be happy with the hand life has dealt you. But at least you're not an 45-year-old man dressed as what appears to be a cross between a kitty and a Japanese call girl.

OK. Now I'm ready to update.

Pretty sure I got the short end of the stick in this slipper exchange.

Now with 100% more fun!

I just realized that I haven't updated the blog in a while.

Not that I'm going to start now.

But I haven't forgotten about you – I'm just waiting for the next big event. Perhaps Kaylee's first car or her high school graduation.

Parenting tip #134

If your child is eating yogurt – and sneezes – do not wipe the yogurt off her pants and lick it off of your fingers. It might not be yogurt.
