Please, Make It Stop: Part 16

Who says you can't put a price tag on being a father?

"For helping his daughter through her turbulent period, Jamie Spears on Monday was awarded an additional $51,000 payout, reflecting an increase in his monthly payments since he took over his 27-year-old daughter's affairs in February. Jamie Spears had been receiving $10,000 a month for his work, but Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz increased that amount to approximately $16,000 per month and agreed to give him backpay."

My kid is in bed with the stomach yucks, and about an hour ago I cleaned up a pool of vomit off his bedroom floor.

For free.

I wouldn't have it any other way.

Oh, no! Here's hoping those stomach yucks go away soon.

It's pretty amazing, isn't it, how being a dad changes your perspective on clean-ups? 2008 has been a banner year for the vomit here, and I'm hoping that 2009 is puke-free.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a rockin' New Year.

Thanks, Hoyt! Happy Chanukah, and I hope 2009 IS vomit free for you and the donutbuzzs.

But you still could use the 16K a month to do it, right?
