An Unheeded Warning

I guess I should have listened to my parents. They warned me about letting my battery powered train run all over the house without supervision.
What they said would happen finally happened. It drove to a hidden place and ran out of battery power. :o
I didn't think I would ever say this but I should have respected my elders. Now if I was a train where would I have hidden?????? -Jaxon

I'm Not Going To Help Daddy Cover-Up For His Drinking!

Mommy went to the grocery store and replenished our juice supply today. She just didn't count on Daddy's need for Vitamin C tonight.
It's not that I am mad that Daddy drank the entire 1/2 Gallon. After all, I have been known to consume a lot in one sitting. But after that he tried to pass off the blame for drinking all the orange juice on ME!
Yeah, I'm sure that half a Sippy Cup you gave me really put a dent in the OJ! I bet you finished off the part I didn't finish anyway. Naughty Daddy! -Jaxon

Testosterone Party!

Daddy had some friends from high school over and go figure . . . they all had boys! I don't know how they pulled that one off.
With no little girls around to keep us in check we were totally out of control. It was great!
I love play dates with my gals but sometimes you have to have a guys day. Sometimes MEN just need to be MEN with no restraints. -Jaxon

Becoming My Daddy

I do respect my Daddy but I don't want to become him. He is a Superhero at work protecting the people of Seattle with his "Insurance Powers" but I don't think it is for me.
The matching sweater shot may be cute but it isn't helping me create my own identity. Just for the record I was tricked into this photo. This attempt to mold me isn't going to work especially when I become a teenager.
If Daddy thinks he can make me his Mini-Me he is sadly mistaken! -Jaxon

Big Game Hunter at Zoomazium

They tried to curtail my Masculine urge to go out and hunt at Zoomazium today. They attempted to channel my energy with a peaceful maraca party.
Well, it did work for a little bit. But hunting is in my blood. The thing is, unlike Teddy Roosevelt, I think using a gun is cowardly. If you are going to truly dominate an animal you should do it with your bare hands.
Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to bring any of the animals home as trophies or even as meat for the refrigerator. Oh well, sometimes all you get is the joy of the hunt! -Jaxon

Keeping the Lights On!

Last week we got all the infrastructure in place but today it was time to get the job done. I was a little disappointed that they waited so long to get me up since I am such a vital part of repairing the electrical grid for our street!
Well, when I did get the call I jumped into my truck and got ready for action!
The workers realized that I hadn't been given a pair of hazard goggles so they loaned me a pair.
I kept them on during my lunch break. I need to be ready if I am called out at a moments notice! Being a team player. -Jaxon

Inauguration Day!

Today was the inauguration of President Barack Obama for his second term. So much has changed since the last inauguration . . . most notably Me being born.
I would say that was a good first term accomplishment Mr. President!
So proud that we have such a functioning democracy in America. I was sure born into the right country. Phew! Some countries have elections that are followed by riots and civil unrest but we have a party.
Yeah, a lot can happen in four years. One only knows what I could see happen in the next four years. I probably should have actually watched the inauguration rather than insisting on watching Super WHY. -Jaxon

Finally Being Treated Like An Adult!

Daddy finally started treating me like a real adult today. He bought coffee for Mommy and Me! A toddler needs a good shot of caffeine to start the day also!
Granted, I didn't expect Coffee to taste so much like heated Soy Milk but if this is what coffee tastes like I accept it.
Honestly, it wasn't just about finally being given coffee, it was more about being treated as an equal. -Jaxon

What Is This Work Thing Anyway?!?!?!

This "Work" thing that Mommy and Daddy go to is kind of annoying. It takes them out of circulation when they should be playing with me and when they come home they are a lot slower.
I'm thinking I will pass on this "Getting A Job" thing in the future. I'm not seeing any benefits. -Jaxon

Taking Care Of Our Neighborhoods Infastructure

The work crew was out today. Our street needs a new electrical grid. I hadn't really noticed anything wrong with our lights but I suppose you deal with the problem before it actually becomes a problem . . . The best defense is a good offense!
The work crew seemed dedicated enough but I noticed they lacked proper structure. They needed a Superintendent badly! A work crew can be very talented but unless they have proper leadership they will never get a project done on time and under budget.
Please remember to thank the "Superintendent" that the lights are on, that is all I ask. -Jaxon

You Bite It, You Buy It

My parents don't give me a lot of cheese because of my milk allergy so when I get a chance to try something new I take it. The problem is that my parents are kind of in a rut. They only buy Sharp Cheddar and Monterrey Jack.
So when Daddy brought me to QFC tonight and I saw the cheese selection I rushed over to the Garlic White Cheddar Cheese and took a huge bite! I could tell Daddy was having a moral dilemma. Should he walk away from the cheese with the bite mark or should he buy it. Well, we now have a baby loaf of Garlic Cheddar in the refrigerator! -Jaxon

Hans and Franz Would Be Proud!

I am Jaxon and I am Dominic and we are here to "Pump You Up!".
You have to start your workout regimen at some point in time. Our Moms decided we were turning into Girly Men so they took us to the gym for a vigorous workout.
You have to have goals in life. Dominic and I have a goal-to have the largest biceps possible!
You all have an invitation to the "Gun Show" and I am going to have the biggest two on the range!
Feel the burn! -Jaxon

The End of the Football Season

Mommy didn't really care for watching the game with us today.
Still, she was nice enough to give her 12th Men some blueberry muffins before she left . . . a little calm before the insanity of the game started. What the?!?!?!!!
By halftime the score was Falcons 20 and Seahawks 0! Dang Pete Carroll, get your house in order. Daddy was also failing, if you want to keep me settled you have to at least have SUPER WHY! on in the background to keep my nerves in check. A football game doesn't have the tranquility of Caillou. But all of a sudden everything clicked!
A Seahawks 28 and Falcons 27 score with less than a minute to go!
Daddy told me to jump and oh boy I did! Can you say 12th Man! Unfortunately . . . can you also say "Field Goal"!
I guess the Hawks weren't expecting that one. In the end it was all too much for me to deal with. Unfortunately, I don't think my first Father/Son Football Game was a very good experience for me.
In the end I had to drown my sorrows with one of the last remaining Seahawks cupcakes at Trophy.
Nothing like some sugar to take away the pain of defeat. Hold your head high Seahawks. There is always 2014.
12th Man!

Keeping The Family Finances In Order!

It is the job of the Man to take care of the finances of the family. Personally, I don't think Daddy is suitably up to the challenge. I'm not saying he doesn't mean well, he's just not good with budgeting.
Good thing I was willing to Man-up.
After I balanced the family budget I took Daddy to the bank. I thought it was important that I start a personal relationship with a banker. When Mommy decides that it is finally time for me to be the head of the household I want to be ready. -Jaxon

Not Exactly Santa Clause

What did he tell that boy? I guess in Russia they aren't as nurturing as they are here.
Somebody should tell Vladimir Putin that his job is to put fear into the hearts of the enemies of Russia . . . not its children! And to think this was done on (Orthodox) Christmas! Thankfully, I was born way after the Cold War ended. Still, this guy scares me.
I may need to squeeze Elmo a little tighter tonight. This guy could definitely show up in a nightmare.
Scary! -Jaxon

Starting My Sonics Memories (Hopefully)

Something got resurrected today. Daddy's love for the NBA. His Super Sonics (Might) be coming back to Seattle.
My Daddy was supposedly a little boy once and worshipped the Seattle Super Sonics.
He was my age when they won their only Championship. He thought they were cool even when they struggled during the 1980s but still loved Ellis and "X-Man" McDaniel.
And when the era of Kemp and "The Glove" Payton started he listened to every game when he was doing his homework. Yeah there was that mishap in 1994 but remember the playoffs against the Bulls in 1996! Especially when Brickowski messed with Rodman's head!
And the steady leadership. George Karl will always be the ultimate example of restrained passion for Daddy. And is there anything cooler than Nate McMillan returning as a coach! Of course, all these events happened long, long before I came along. Daddy is determined that I have similar memories though. -Jaxon
