First, The Tick earns her nickname and has to sit with on Dad.

No, we don’t brush her hair. Someone’s going for a haircut this week because some parents are dang tired of fighting over brushing that mane of tangled locks.

Wait wait wait.

FIRST Mommy picks up a computer/website virus from the States somehow, using unsecure networks in her travels, while writing posts while on vacation. Then she gets emails from everyone telling her that her website sets off alarms and bells on personal computers that have virus software.


Second, we try to fix. We being the Royal We and really is just Mr Magpie.

Third, the virus is everywhere.

Fourth, time to revamp it all.

THEN we get to The Tick.

She thinks’s she some funny, this kid.

Her brother thinks this is a great time too.

Greater times include a yelling match – while my daughter is still ticked to her dad’s back – and posing for the camera while her brother fakes punches her.

At least I hope this was a fake punch. In our house, you never know.

Five hours later, Mommy has a quasi-in-the-works-website up and still so very much that has to be worked on.

Daddy was thankful he works out of the house.

Any questions?
