Daddy Blues

Not as common as Mommy blues, but still just as real.  My oldest son Airman P.L. Alexander has been stationed in Okinawa, Japan.  While I'm extremely proud and optimistic for his future, the Daddy in me is scared sick!  Kids grow up so fast.  I remember there was a time when he was only allowed to play in the fenced in backyard.  When he was old enough to ride his bike, he had to stay within sight of the house.  Meaning that if coulcn't see the house, he was too far away.  Indeed his mother and I raised a fine young man, who is worthy of my respect and the respect of this country for his service to the country.  I salute you son!

Loving More Than One Woman

Her: Do you still love her?
You: No!

I don't know why we lie when women ask us that question.  Well, I understand why.  We don't want to hurt our special lady's feelings.  But the truth of the matter is this:  Feelings don't just disappear because you ended a relationship.  Over the course of the relationship the connections you made with her family and friends stay with you forever.  Also, factor in the children you shared with that person.  Can you honestly say to yourself that you DO NOT love the woman that gave birth to your children or spent X amount of years with?

Dealing With Blended Families - The Children part 1

A blended family is a family with children from different relationships.  The woman you are with has children from a different relationship, you have children from a different relationship, and finally the children from the current relationship.  These situations are naturally a nightmare for people to deal with.  The children are often insecure with things and often fight between themselves.  The couple struggles to show all of the children that there are no favorites.  Finally, the absent parent struggles to deal with their child being in the middle of all your mess.

Too Many Babies, Not Enough Time

Being with a woman who has children from a previous relationship can be difficult.  Especially if you too have children from a previous relationship.  There are always that fear in the back of your mind that you may be spending more time with this "woman's" child than your own, or that your children may be jealous of the fact that there are other children occupying your free time. 

Getting My Groove Back

I decided a month ago that I would get my groove back by working out on a consistent basis and taking better care of myself.  You see as men get older, they tend to get lazy.  It hurts to admit it, but it's true.  Your testosterone decreases, your metabolism slows down, and you just don't have energy.  I woke up one day and looked in the mirror and was disgusted in what I saw and said to myself, "NO MORE!"

I think everyone knows about my cat Lyla, but what most people don't know is that I used to own Pit Bulls. You may ask, "How does one go from ownership of Pit Bulls, to caring for a cat?" Well to be honest, one day I just woke up and said hey, I must has a kittenz! Dogs and Cats are as different as night and day. For instance, when I owned pitbulls, my female named, Princess, was only concerned with pleasing master. She would do tricks, sit obediently while she waited to be fed, and wouldn't dare jump up on people or bark at other animals without permission.

Cats are SOOOOO not concerned with master. In fact, I don't even think you can be "cat owner". You are more like the cat's Human. I swear at times I can almost hear Lyla saying to me, "Human, I'm hungry...must has fudz NAO!" Other times she says to me, "Human, I am ready for some attention...ok enough attention leave me alone, NAO!"

All in all, I love my cat to death. Whether it be her HUGE Flea infestation incident or her insistence that she MUST climb upon every surface of the house, I will always be her hairless Human. Thanks for reading guys. Contact/add me on aim @ dubkdad1.
