Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie

My wonderful wife got me a banana cream pie for a birthday cake. She hates the stuff but knows it’s my favorite. Yay for wonderful wives.

Number three?

Number three?

We’re horrible at keeping secrets.  But we all know the power of prayer so the earlier people can start praying for us the better.

Yes, we’re expecting Baby Sayo #3!  It’s about time if you ask me.  But I’m not the one that’s going to have the baby but Nancy is such a trooper. She doesn’t whine or complain no matter how hard it gets. Always positive because I truly believe that negativity is so contagious to people around you and to the baby.  We’re a little nervous about the practical things but all that is usually taken care of.  Nancy is already starting to feel lousy and I think I am getting sympathy crappyness as well if that’s possible.  Spencer will have to be doing double duty once the baby is born late May.   Big brother has to help big time.  I think it’s a girl, Nancy thinks it’s a boy but she’s always wrong and three of our family members have had dreams of baby #3 being a girl.  Don’t forget to take the poll on the right. Very exciting. We’re looking for in-utero names so please give us some ideas.

Update: Sonogram Picture.  We’ll find out if it’s a boy or a girl in two weeks.


Single Dad

Nancy is off to Dallas to visit Sephora’s call center there.  She’ll be gone for 12 days.  And today is her birthday.  When she arrived at her hotel she went out for dinner at Denny’s.  It was the only place open.  They give you a free Grand Slam on your birthday, she ordered the chicken.  Good for you , honey!

I am missing my wife very much. I am already feeling the incompleteness already closing in.  And Spencer and Eva, I feel like they are missing their mom.  Earlier tonight Eva kept pointing upstairs and whimpering a bit.   She’s used to her mom being home at a certain time.  They need their mom’s kind heart and soft words.  I’m all about getting them consistent in a firm way.  This is only the tip of a very big iceberg to the reasons why it is important to have parents for children.  I’ve been a stay at home dad for just about three years now I can say that no matter how one feels prepared to be a single parent you’re always going to be missing something.  I applaud those who are single parents, it’s got to be one of the hardest jobs to have.

I can’t wait for Nancy to come home.
