I finally found a picture for my blog header. It is a baseball field since that is where I planning on spending the first part of the summer at. My oldest son T is playing baseball. He is a good batter and a decent catcher / outfielder on the team he is on. He hasn’t played any games yet but he already has a battle scar from the baseball hitting him in the check. He is a little bit bruised but is just fine.
My other boy J is going to play baseball next month. His season is only four weeks long and is indoors with a soft baseball. He likes watching his brother play.
The twins, M and L, are just being two year olds and they are a hand full. They expect me to give them all of my attention especially when T is doing his homework in the evenings.
Between all four kids my day starts out at 6 AM and ends around 11 PM if I’m lucky. I’m doing this while trying to be a good husband to Busy Mom. Sometimes it is not as easy as it sounds and other times it is too easy. Yes I do work and it is sometimes stressful at work with deadlines and due dates.
That is why having date nights with your love one is a very important step in having a sane household. Else I would be pulling my hair out instead of cutting it all off like I do now. We try to have a date nigh at least once a month. It gives us a break from reality of having four kids.
Do you have date nights or something similar? Share your stories in the comments. Or feel free to use my ideas as well.

I’m back to blogging again after taking some time off due to sickness going through my family as well as trying to stay in shape and getting the outside of my house back into shape before this summer.
Between all three of them I had to put blogging on hold. Since my family is all healthy and I’m using the outside house work as a way to help keep myself in shape, I have found time to start blogging. I have a bunch of new ideas for posts on here as well as changes to my blog in the upcoming weeks. I will also start planning on having at least three or more posts a week.
The reasons I’m doing this is simple. The simple design of my blog is getting to be too small and I want to expand it. The knowledge of being a father of four children can also help other fathers that are in the same place in life that I am or where I was. Hope to increase my blog readership so I can hear from other father’s on what they are going through.
Keep coming back for more posts since. I’m keeping this post short due to having to go back to work since this is my lunch hour.

Happy Valentine’s day to everyone out there.
1 Corinthians 13:7-8 ()
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. #Bible http://j.mp/vVllh6
