Pic of the Week: Life with Logan

Day 105

I remember back before we had Logan Kristy and I used to watch VH1's Behind the Music episodes almost every Sunday night. For those that don't know, Behind the Music was a TV show that took a musical artist and we saw their story. How they became a band, what happened to them, what they are doing now and so forth.

I learned two things watching that show. If you belonged in a metal band, someone would die somehow. Seriously, it happened to Def Leppard, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC and you can count Motley Crue since one of the members was actually pronounced dead before somehow coming back to life. The other thing that I learned was how much family meant to these hard rockers. Every single one of them would talk about how much they love their kids and how that was the best part of their life. And I used to think "Are you kidding me?"

I would love to be a rock star and perform in front of huge crowds and tour. They had it all and their kids were the best thing that happened to them? Seriously?

Then Logan came along and suddenly I realized how right they were. I think one of the best things about having a kid of your own is introducing them to things you enjoy. I have tried my hardest in getting Logan to enjoy what I enjoy. For instance, Kristy is not a fan of hamburgers and I love them. She is more of a pizza person. But Logan LOVES cheeseburgers now so I have him on my side when we decide to treat ourselves by going out to eat.

He is willing to pose for my blog and he likes Banshee! (I'll have to explain who Banshee is in a later post)

He is a New York Jets fan! Poor kid, I shouldn't subject him to that!

He is a big Star Wars fan. He loves watching and playing Star Wars.

He was Wolverine for his 1st Halloween. I'll have a separate blog entry for this. I made a movie with him and it was better than Wolverine Origins.

He can be silly when he feels like it.

He loves cats. Sorry dog people and cat haters. We love cats. But we are not fanatical about them though.

He loves to read and loves the comics I have got for him. I cannot wait till he gets a little older so he can really dig the ones I have.

I guess having a kid is a cool thing.


  1. That was awesome! Logan seems like such a cool kid- wish we saw you guys more so we could experience him ourselves... but for now- seeing him in your blog is great! You and Kristy are great parents!

  2. Wow! What a touching tribute to parenthood! And I'll say this for Logan: he's got great taste in his interests! Must come from "being born of goodly parents!"
