Marley being, well, Marley

Late lunch, someone stole my iPad

Someone was excited to get her first shopping cart ๐Ÿ›’ ride ! ๐Ÿ˜…

Mornings with Marley

This morning I was driving the girls to Grandma’s house (as you do) When all of the sudden Marley asks me for something.

  • “Papa I want…something… hand…something…something”.

  • “What was that again Marley, is it a song that you want?”

  • “Yes Papa, I want my hand was made strong”

  • “Oh! You Want Redemption Song by Bob Marley”

  • “Yes, Papa!”

Yeah, my daughter knows her music well. :)



Yesterday I had Marley run around the backyard, I wanted to sort of test the Olympus 75mm. Iโ€™m happy about its performance capturing a highly mobile toddler.


A running wild Marley

In honor of Batman day, Iโ€™m posting this Batman Day throwback. Marley, age… couple of months.

No ouchy ๐Ÿค• will stop her from coming out and hang out with me for a bit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hippie Marley

Marley (3yo) really likes Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro.

She splashes!

Marley Elizabeth Santiago, age 3, the reason I became a father and the reason I drink! ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‚

The Grandparents (my parents) are in the house!

Cousins (Marley & Liam)

Morning walk with the worst trainer ever (sheโ€™s a slave driver) faster papa , faster!!!!

I’m getting out of the shower when our 3yo Marley walks in, then she stairs at me.

  • Mar: Papa, you need to grow some boobs. I think you can grow some boobs
  • Me: ๐Ÿ’ฌ
  • Me: how about no?

A wild Marley appeared!

Kiddos are having it rough today.


Gabz's log for 2019/06/13

Today I did the home-stay-dad thing, or daddy nurse. Marley (3yo) got sick yesterday so I stayed home today to take care of her and also taking her to the pediatrician, while Luna (7mo) was at grandma’s. That meant a lot ofboth playtime and some downtime for both of us and a lot of Assassinโ€™s Creed Odyssey ๐Ÿคซ. Seriously thought, this home-stay-dad thing, I could do this everyday ! My girls are so much fun!

Visit to the doctor was sort of o-kay. Unlike her sister (so far) Marley has never been too fond of doctor visits, plus she had to get strep swapped, and she really hated that! Called came in, she’s positive for strep, early stages of, but still. Now the kiddo will be on antibiotics for the next ten days.

Funny story! We go to pick Marley’s prescription at our local Walgreens, I am getting to the drive trough.

  • Marley: What are we doing?

  • Me: We are picking up you medicine.

  • I stop at the window


  • Me: ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜…


Get home, Wife also makes it home a wee bit after, she goes to pick up the mail and guess what showed up ? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Thank you Mister @Burk , I owe you a beer ๐Ÿบ (or coffee โ˜•๏ธ)

And of course its been put on to good use


And thus we conclude, our day, with a sweet, sweet new-to-me, delicious beer.
