Well it’s finally here, the moment that you’ve all been waiting for; it’s time to find out the lucky winner of our Sex Guess Giveaway.  We had 28 entries that guessed Baby Guppy would be a girl and 16 entries that guessed for a boy.  I want to thank all of you for entering and coming along for the ride as we played the waiting game to find out our babies gender.  However, given that we aren’t having twins, only one group of you guys could be right and that group is the folks that guessed Baby Guppy was a girl!

All 28 names were assigned a random number and then 28 numbers were placed into a hat, with one winner to be drawn.  The drawing was conducted last night and the winner will be revealed “live” by watching the following video.

Good Luck Guys!


P.S.     Ty’s hat was not harmed during the filming of this video

P.S.S.    Tre’s drum sticks were not harmed after they were forcefully removed from him

The Lonely Orphan

I write this post with a heavy heart, as the 3rd week of the NFL season coming to a close, I find myself alone, confused, and without a team to call my own. Typically I reserve my internal struggles and issues for my therapist, but I thought that this conflict was worthy of discussion on Daddy’s Fish Bowl; mainly because my inability to choose an NFL team to back is negatively impacting my children. As a father, I owe it to them to crawl my way out of this self loathing NFL depression that I’ve slipped into and get my ducks in a row.

Please find below some conclusive scientific data to assist with your determination of the baby’s gender.


Test #1: The Heartbeat Test – If baby’s heartbeat is above 140bpm, then it is a girl; if it is below it is a boy

Results: Heartbeat Range 148-151

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #2: Key To My Heart Test – If the pregnant woman picks up a key from a flat surface by the narrow end, it is a girl; if the key is retrieved by the fat end, it is a boy

Results: Narrow End

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #3: Chinese Gender Chart – Based on conception date/due date and mother’s age, the Chinese gender chart can determine the sex of the baby

Results: See Conclusion

Conclusion: IT’S A BOY


Test #4: Ring On A String – Tie a ring to a string and hold it over Mom’s belly, if the ring swings in a circular motion, it’s a girl; however, if it swings back and forth, it’s a boy

Results: Circular Motion

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #5: Baby In The Belly – If the woman is carrying high, it’s a girl; if she is carrying low, it’s a boy

Results: We feel that she is carrying high, but see for yourselves and make a decision

Is That Baby High Or Low???

The Mis-Education Of Tre-Z


Posted by Keith | Posted in Activities, Family, Tre | Posted on 13-09-2012

So here we are, Labor Day has passed, the first week of football is complete, the days are getting shorter and I’m struggling to get over a cold. It’s official, summer is gone and soon to be forgotten as we prepare for the many many many many many many many cold months that follow it. Sorry for so many “many’s”, but we do live in Minnesota now, so I feel that it’s totally acceptable. At any rate, the end of summer brings the beginning of a new school year, and even though Tre was too young to start Kindergarten this year, he is still most certainly gaining an education; however misguided it may be.
