Mickey Waffles

My wife Amy is wonderful.  Every first day of school, she has served our kids Mickey Mouse Waffles.  It's been a tradition for years in our home.  And this year, it's kinda sad, because this year is the last year we'll do it.  Our daughter Kimberly is a senior and today had her waffles.  I was trying to count how many waffles Amy has made over the years.  I'm thinking 39? 
Traditions, no matter how small, help build family unity.  They remind us that though we are individuals, we are one.  Even if it's a Mickey Mouse waffle that so!

Hello, this is Amy Wallace, Kurt's wife.  He hasn't been blogging lately because he recently had "elbow" surgery.  He says he can't type.  It hurts.  Of course, that's the same excuse he's used all week for why he can't buckle his seat belt, can't cut his meat, can't pull the sheets over his body, can't put deodorant on under his left arm, can't put his socks on, can't load the dishwasher, can't spread mayo on his turkey sandwich...and the list, goes on and on!  Ladies, you know what I'm talking about, when we're injured, or, like me had a surgery, the next day, we are back doing what we do!  If we didn't, it just wouldn't get done.  As for Kurt, well, he hopes to be able to type again next week.  He's not sure he's ready for the dishwasher yet though.  Go figure!  Men are wimps!

Kate Plus 8

I was watching that Kate Plus 8 show on tv the other night.  Wow, it seems like she has it all together, taking care of those 8 kids, all by herself!  3 days in Tennessee volunteering at food banks, soup kitchens, appearances and racing around Bristol motor speedway, all wrapped up neatly in a hour show!  Amazing!  Got me to thinking of the "real life" that happened between the edits.  How would we view Kate if we saw what got chopped on the edit room floor?  I bet we'd see a stressed woman who has lots of help with those kids.  What plays for reality on tv, isn't reality at all.  Mom pleading with someone to carry the laundry basket downstairs, put the toilet paper on toilet paper holder and to please close the kitchen cabinets when you're done!  That's real life.  Letting the dogs out, deciding which bill to pay ...

To Fail or Not to Fail?

It's one of the hardest things to do as a parent...let your kids fail.  Man, that one is tough!  You don't want them to go through the "bad stuff", especially when you can help prevent it! 
But, as we know, nothing in parenting is black and white. It's fine to theoretically say that all children must make mistakes and fail, but when it's our children, all that great insight can go out the window. To put it in a baseball analogy, which I like to do, "you just don't want to be there when they strike out."

I began my radio career near my hometown of Belleville, IL, in St. Louis, when radio stations played these things called “records”!  Remember those?  Growing up, I think I always knew that I would be on the radio!  I fell asleep to many Cardinal baseball games listening on my little transistor radio and would repeat almost everything a DJ would say on the air. 

I was always the narrator in church plays, was active in theater and was never one to shy-away from a microphone.  I attended Greenville College in Greenville, IL where my roommate and I did a show on the campus radio station every weeknight from 10pm-midnight.  Man, we were bad! But, it impressed the girls!  It began my journey in radio too, a journey that's taken me to Chicago, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and for 7 years here in Indy!   

I guess the smartest decision of my life happened in 1987 when my wife Amy asked me to marry her.  I accepted! (ha!).  We have 4 wonderful kids and 3, ok 1 real dog and 2 fake dogs.  The black lab is the real dog, the toy poodle and Chihuahua, not so much!  We live in Franklin Township and absolutely love Indianapolis! I love playing softball, but these days, it hurts to play!  Oh, and last year, my wife encouraged my to buy a motorcycle…not sure what that means?  I am also known as a “cheapskate” around my house.  I love saving money!

I look forward to becoming friends on the air and online on Facebook! Thanks for listening weekdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Soft Rock B105.7!
