My wife is so awesome… I wish I had fancier words to use to describe her, but to keep it short and simple, she’s just awesome. She runs her own company, keeps the house running smoothly, and she is a legit stay at home mommy all at once. Sometimes I wonder how she does it. Especially with the traveling I have with work, but she always makes it happen, without complaining… too much 😉 (It’s ok to vent from time to time).
This weekend she made it all about me. She didn’t have to, but she just did. I honestly would be happy with just getting some pizza and hanging out at home. She set up a babysitter on Friday night, and got us movie tickets to check out “Dope”. She heard me say that I wanted to watch that movie last week. The movie was great! The script was great, and the message was one of those messages that gets people clapping. Guess who missed the big climax? Kinsey. She had to go to the bathroom about half way into the movie, but she kept waiting until she couldn’t wait anymore. She finally ended up going, and that’s when the message was revealed. It was strong. Kinsey came in as people were finishing up the clapping, she said she saw tears in some people’s faces. I told her that she had missed the “moment”… poor Kinsey.
Saturday, we hit up a birthday party. This is what my life has become on weekends, which is normal when you have little kids. You go to a house, get covered in bubbles, kids get covered in sticky stuff (cake, ice cream, candy), you go home and say that was tough, but you do it again the next weekend.
On Sunday I was woken up by Chloe and Cason screaming Happy Father’s day. They each made me a card and they definitely are my children because the cards were punny. Chloe had her handprints upside down, and it read “you are the best daddy, Hands Down!” hahaha. Cason’s had a bear with spread arms when you opened the card and it said “I love you Beary much!!!” haha. My kids rock. Kinsey made me some chorizo and eggs. They gave me some daddy presents, and we all hung out together all day. I had a blast. These are the days I hope my kids remember. We went to our friend’s club. They had a lil water slide, and I had my first daddy/son moment where you have to give them a lil push to do something. Cason would not go down the slide by himself. Only with me. Yes, he was wearing a life vest. So about 5 trips in, I told him he should try it by himself. He didn’t want to because he was scared. So when he sat down, I sat down behind him and I said, “This is going to help you realize you can do it,” and I pushed him down the slide. You are waiting for me to tell you how much he loved it, right? He didn’t. He hated it. My son is a very cautious person, and I am super cool with that. He told me he would forgive me because it was Father’s Day, and if I let him eat another piece of candy. The deal went down without any issues.
