I know we are busy. I know we start getting dressed in the mornings and try to eat at the same time. I am aware that the brain fog of early morning is nothing to be messed with but seriously… who left the half-eaten bowl of Froot Loops on the back of the toilet? Not cool.
I was interviewed by www.dadofdivas.com for the Dads In The Limelight Series. It was a good interview and timely for me because I am in one of those dreary cycles where I don’t feel like being awesome at anything. You can read the interview here.
Fun story from Labor Day Weekend: We arrived at the TN River just in time for the girls to go on a boat ride with the grandparents. The smallest child, Lady Bug, went on the boat in her cute little swimsuit and life jacket. She had those beefy little baby legs that are so cute and little round feet that make her waddle just a bit when she walks. They all got on the boat as we stayed behind to unload the van. When everyone returned they had been swimming in a playing in sand. Lady Bug’s diaper had taken on water and just like the Titanic, it fell apart and sank, so she was going commando in her swimsuit. No big deal. We could gamble on that for a few minutes.
The four girls sit down at the picnic table as we start to prepare little paper plates with fruits and chips for afternoon snacks. Supermom notices that there is a very large puddle forming under Lady Bug and sure enough she has peed. Just from a gut reaction I checked her swimsuit and found that she had also brewed up a number two. Once again we have a child isolated in the middle of a group of people while we decide how to handle an open-potty situation. We opted for the hose in the side of the yard. Spray them down and start over.
Another fun story: Supermom got a couple of tattoos from a good friend of mine who has worked hard and made a name for himself in the tattoo world. We didn’t test his mad skills in any way but I am really excited that he was able to do it.
The first one is for breast cancer and cute hearts.
The second is a semi-colon for a daily reminder to keep your head up and smile.
