I never know what fatherhood surprises are lurking around the corner.
Between quarantine and Summer break, it feels like he’s been in there for eons.
He won the standoff. He always wins the standoffs.
I know that every cent spent is a minute earned burned, but she doesn’t.
Say their names and I see a snapshot from long ago. Their ages far exceed my my memories.
Ironically, it’s his attempts to get out of showing me what he can do that has shown me the most.
This is the kid who I was afraid would never be able to express his wants and needs.
I know we’re not supposed to mention those things. It makes us uncomfortable, but we’re all adults here.
Had you told me two days earlier that this would have been Christmas, I would have screamed in worried agony. I would have called it a failure and seen my biggest fear become a reality.
If you’re busy yelling and screaming about the mistakes you make today, you lose the focus to erase them from the person you are tomorrow.
