What Am I doing?

This week was pretty awesome. I was able to help my awesome mother-in-law re-roof her entire house. Don’t worry, I’ve got a post coming soon to give you the breakdown and cost savings on that project. We’ve also been doing a ton at church lately, as I mix the sound and Michelle is actually going to a Women’s conference this weekend. Which means it’s just me and the little one. At home. Alone.

I mean really, how much damage could he do?

Mwuahahaha! We’re going to have a BLAST! I’m excited for some daddy time with our little man, to teach him the ropes of life and talk to him about what it means to be a man. Or…we’ll just crawl around, drool on stuff and mess up the entire house! Either way, it’s gunna be a blast, and I’m pretty excited.


No Carnivals again this week. I need to get on this!

  11. Thanks for mentioning my post, Jacob! Your little man is so cute! Is he already starting to stand a little? He might be like my youngest who started walking at 10 months–watch out! She’s now 14 months and climbs onto the table top from chairs and has fallen off the back of the couch, a chair onto the hardwood, and her stroller that she climbed up into as well. She’s a crazy baby! I’m about to bubble wrap my house. That wouldn’t be weird, right? Anyway, great job with the blog growth, mentions, and traffic. You’re rockin it!
