BlogHer 2012: Why Am I Not Invited? UGH! (LIVE BLOG!)

My wife in a cab, racing to another awesome party!

A few months back, my wife, Monica, went to New York City to see some friends.

It was her very first time ever being away from our two kids for any length of time And it was my very first time having them to care for all by myself for days on end.

Practically the moment Monica walked out the door that morning, I noticed Violet was suddenly covered in hives. She had been sick, along with her little brother, Henry, and at the most convenient time known to mankind, she happened to have an allergic reaction to the meds she was on.

Of course, the entire weekend proved to be a challenge of epic proportions for me, and for the poor sick kiddos, thanks largely to their respective sicknesses.

What made it slightly more bearable for me was the fact that I had decided to LIVE BLOG the entire weekend, the highs and lows, the humor and the nerve-racking insanity.

So, now I find myself in a similar situation, my wife off to the nation’s largest gathering of women bloggers (BlogHer), and me, left behind to make sure that little people get fed and survive and hopefully have a few  laughs and some fun in the process.

And so, I’ve decided that I simply have to document the weekend once again. I figure, hey, if nothing else, maybe in 5000 years someone will find my laptop buried in a thick sheet of ice (how that ends up happening, I have no friggin’ idea) and be able to unveil the mysteries of what life was like long ago, for a man watching two wild kids all by his lonesome.

Plus, best case scenario: you happen to come by and read the thing in the ‘here and now’ and have a few laughs of your own.

That would be so cool, too, because honestly, I don’t wanna have to wait 5000 years for this stuff to make someone smile if I don’t have to.

Join me then, my friends, over at me and Monica’s He Said/She Said blog on Babble Voices.
