FOF Observation #26

The "FOF Observations" are a series of "Perpetual Posts" where I will share with you, my readers, short little observations that I have made (or will be making) on being the father of a large family. You will be able to access each of the posts in a cohesive list by clicking on the "FOF Observations" link in the "Perpetual Posts" group on the sidebar.

Digital Thermometer Today #4 of 5 was home sick.  In the middle of the day the Mother of Five called home to check in on our sick little one.  She asked if I took her temperature yet - (sounds of crickets chirping). 

Ok, ok, ok.  Once again I am out of the running for “parent of the year”.

After completing the conversation with the Mother of Five, I went a searchin’ for the thermometer, and as luck (and a little bit of Murphy’s Law) would dictate – that little thing was NOWHERE to be found.  Oh, I DID find the little clear case, but the actual thermometer was eluding me. 

I called the Mother of Five back and asked her if she knew were it was.  I tried the list of locations she provided me with no luck.  Her last resort?  Run to the store and buy another one. 

Dads… Are you out there?  Am I alone in my frustration with the phrase “just buy another one”??? 

So, here is my “Observation” for you.


If you are you a parent… 

If you are you going to be a parent soon… 

If you are even CONSIDERING becoming a parent one day…  

Let me make a suggestion for you…  (Consider it a tip from one dad to another)  Invest your money in whoever makes these things.  I can not even begin to count how many we have bought and lost over the years.   (No exaggeration – I bet at least ten!)
