Great!

 

I'm happy when I'm reading my favorite while lying on down on the couch. Plus a pop or rock music in the background..

I gave my wife's friend a ride home last night. She was drunk and stumbling around in the streets and my wife say's "hey isn't that.....so and so?".

very pretty girl, apparently she got drunk and her male friend she was with hooked up with another girl and she tried to walk home alone.

Three-way fail.

It is Friday, by the way. One of my favourite days of the week.

The weather has been great for the last week, which means lots of girls sunbathing in next to nothing on every spare piece of grass available.

I don't like seeing that. It is distracting. It takes too much attention away from me.

I think I'd be upset at her male friend, but don't really know all the circumstances. Still, that was very kind of you.

...

So, this week has been rough in terms of family harmony, and today the wife gets on a plane to go to a weekend conference. Not really happy about that (although YAY FREEDOM), but last night the Mrs. was trying to put our little RoRo to bed and she was having None of That Nonsense. I'd left the door to her room open and she jumped out of the wife's lap, ran out of her room and found me in the kitchen where I was eating a peach. She jumped at me, I picked her up and held her in one arm and we ate the rest of the peach together - I'd cut off a small piece and she would grab it. Then she drank water from a glass - which for her is still a dicey proposition, she tends to wear some of it (and by extension me since I'm holding her). I know, these are things you do every day, but it was a moment of blissful serenity for us.

thats really sweet. the thing that irks me is, no matter how hard i try to force myself to remember these moments with my kids, inevitably i forget most of them. i hope you hold on to the memory. maybe bookmark this post or something.

I have a picture on my credenza that has RoRo lying on my chest. One of those moments. But I think it's also a self-feeding process: having moments like that feeds into more moments like that, provided you keep the door open, so to speak. That's one of the reasons that I've been the main parent: I wake her, dress her, take her to school, bring her home, read to her, bathe her, put her to bed.

this has been said, and maybe this is the kind of posting you dont like, but it still deserves repeating. thomas, by all accounts, you are a parent par excellence.

yes, well, both of you...about that... you're not hearing the bad parts. Trust me, there's plenty of that as well: rough moments and questionable parenting. But thanks all the same.

there are always rough moments as a parent, is part of the gig. part of what i see as excellent about your parenting, is your determination to have strong continued involvement with your children, despite the rough times. always plowing forward and doing the best you can. that is something where i find many parents fail.

Thomas, will you adopt me? I cannot wait to tell my friends and classmates that my daddy is a moderator on an online forum about men's clothing.
