You Know You Are Four When…

Phil Sees His Shadow
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:12 am

Via WaPo Punxsutawney Groundhog Sees His Shadow

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, but it was hard to find a complainer in the crowd on Gobbler’s Knob, where the morning temperature was well above freezing and Thursday’s high was expected to hit 48 degrees.

There were a few boos at the groundhog’s prediction of six more weeks of winter, but most of the hundreds of revelers instead turned the event into an impromptu Pittsburgh Steelers rally.

Really, how does one know that the giant rodent in question saw his shadow?

I will say that Groundhog Day is a fantastic flick, Groundhog Days itself is a bit of a yawner.

Amusingly, Middle Son asked me this morning: “Dad, did that animal see its shadow”?

And, according to the story, it seems that the issue is really whether he casts a shadow or not:

The Germans believed that if a hibernating animal casts a shadow Feb. 2 _ the Christian holiday of Candlemas _ winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early.

According to the Groundhog Club, Phil has now seen his shadow 96 times, hasn’t seen it 14 times and there are no records for nine years.

The last time Phil failed to see his shadow was in 1999.

Surely, then, the issues is less about the animal, than about the lighting conditions?

And now I know we can blame all of this on the Germans.

The Life of Ouroboros
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 8:38 pm

I started the morning trying not to lose my patience while trying to get Oldest Son out of bed and ended the evening trying not to lose my patience to get Oldest Son into bed.

That’s just not right.

Christmas Time is Here
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 1:20 pm

I hope that everyone is having a Merry Christmas. All is well at the Taylor homestead, where the day started at 6:49am and has been filled, to this point, with gift unwrapping, breakfast and much playing, church, turkey preparation, a light lunch and now a little lull.

Perhaps I will post a photo montage later.

Right now I promised Middle Son I’d assemble the desk he got for Christmas from his Great-Grandparents.

I Said it
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 3:20 pm

“This isn’t the time to be running around the house with a towel on your head” (me to Youngest Son this morning).

Which, of course, begs the question as to exactly when the appropriate time would be.

Sure, the Day Commemorate the Birth of Christ, but…
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 11:58 am

Via the AP: Some Megachurches Closing for Christmas.

I can understand having less services than normal and I can understand a simplified service-but closing on Christmas because the holiday falls on a Sunday?

That’s just wrong.

I will grant: getting the kids to church will a challenge, but gee whiz, there is that whole “reason for the season” business.

Ah well, our service will be at 10:00, and since the kids will, no doubt, be up by 6:30m it ain’t like there will be any gifts left to open at that point.

The real trick will be convincing the children that they can’t play Gameboy during the service…

“Why did she have to get arrested on December First?”
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 4:42 pm

So said Eldest Child on the way home from school today in the context of complaining that it was cold today downtown when he and his school choir had to sing as part of the Rosa Parks 50th anniversary commemoration.

Giving Thanks
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:38 am

In the spirit of the day, here are some others giving thanks on this special day:

  • Scott Gosnell.
  • Dean Esmay.
  • DJ Drummond at PoliPundit.
  • Bryan S.
  • And NZ Bear has a special Thanksgiving page up at the TTLB.

I am thankful for many of the same things as those above (family, friends, faith).

I am also thankful that Eldest Son appears to be feeling better this morning-we awoke to him coming into our room at 2am in a distraught state (to put it mildly) as the result of some vomiting. I was not thankful for that event, let me assure you all. However, it did lead me to think, as I often do at times like that, that it is amazing how much our children need us, and how much we do for them as we try to prepare them for adulthood. Specifically such events always make me think of the work that my parents did for me and my siblings-work that we did not understand or appreciate any more than my children do now. It takes being a parent to fully appreciate what one’s parents did. And so, for their love and for making sure I made out of the door and into the wide world: my thanks.

We Have Three, and We’re Exhausted

Wowie: Arkansas Mother Gives Birth to 16th Child

The baby’s father, Jim Bob Duggar, a former state representative, said Wednesday that mother and child were doing well.

He said Johannah’s birth was especially exciting because it was the first time in eight years the family has had a girl.

Jim Bob Duggar, 40, said he and Michelle, 39, want more children.


Their children include two sets of twins, and each child has a name beginning with the letter “J”: Joshua, 17; John David, 15; Janna, 15; Jill, 14; Jessa, 12; Jinger, 11; Joseph, 10; Josiah, 9; Joy-Anna, 8; Jeremiah, 6; Jedidiah, 6; Jason, 5; James, 4; Justin, 2; and Jackson Levi, 1.

Quote of the Day
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 11:43 am

“Kids are a lot of work. Everything is a fight”-Collin Cowherd, ESPN Radio.


Althought, then he ruins it by saying: “They say boys are easier”-Collin, of course, has a little girl. Only people withe little girls say that little boys are easier.

All I can say to that quote is: Dude: give me a call, let’s talk.

Having worked with small children at church, I question this thesis. Now, I do know while little girls are easier to handle when they are little (or so it seems to me), I also know that when the girls are teenagers, we parents of little boys will then be able to laugh and laugh and laugh (the way the parents of little girls laugh at us all-boy families when our kids are rolling around on the floor wrastlin’).

Plus, I used to think that one kid was a lot of work, too…
