This week has been crazy. Last week was crazy. I think I have come to the reality that vacation is in my near future. Work and kids have seemed to have swamped my life and is just enough to keep in purgatory.
Work has been insane. Magazines are keeping me busy and my reps always need me. It is a good thing to busy in this day and age. I know a lot of people who have easy jobs until their organization gets smart and cuts them off and now they are struggling to find employment. I actual just got the biggest section of the year put on my lap this week. Living Here is the biggest section The Charlotte Observer publishes. It has one 300 advertisers in it so I have the lucky job to coordinate this publication with only three months of experience. If that is not trust I have no idea what is. It is a great opportunity but I am scared out of my mind. I have a lot of people putting their faith in me to no screw this up.
My wife is a superstar. I can’t ever say that enough. She is like super mom. I really don’t know how she does it and she works full time. The past few weeks we have ad a run of bad luck it you could say that. My truck broke down. The freezer went out and most not the meat that was in there had thawed out so I had to toss it. Then the battery in the truck died so I had to replace it. It has just been one thing after the other.
This weekend we are planning to get away. We have not had a day trip in a couple of weeks so we decided to head up to Lake Lure. We have never been there and are looking forward to exploring and will make a great blog entry next week.
Hope you all have a great Thursday and I will be back on Monday with another #MedalMonday so take care.
I am tired!
The past few months have been like a complete blur. We have had a lot going on. With the renovations, birthday parties, beach trips, sorting through old junk, working, and holidays I really have not had a whole lot of time to breathe.
I think my wife and I need a weekend of down time. As much as I love our crazy life that we built together, I would like to take a time out and sit in a hammock in the shade and just fall asleep for a couple of hours.
There are two things in this world that are amazing: Coffee and more Coffee. I never knew how much I loved it until I had children. My children are amazing but they are exhausting. I love them but they are at a 15 when I need them down at about a 3.
The other day my wife sent me a video of her in the drive thru at Chick-Fil-a and all you hear is my Evie yelling “BITE!!” and that was before my wife even got the food.
I sure I am not the only tired dad out there. I know there are some tired moms out there also. Parents should band together at these points. We all love our kids so it is ok to give each other a little break every now and then. Sometimes it is nice to go to a restaurant that does not have kid placemats.
Honestly I could not come up with something to write about today so this is all I got. Sometimes when you blog you get stuck and when you get stuck you tend to go on little rants like this about tired you are.
Have a great weekend…See you for #MedalMonday!
This week we have had a lot of issues with our kids. I know every parent has issues with their kids but now it is my turn to vent a little.
Lets start with the oldest. K-Dub is having an issue wetting the bed. I am not sure how we have gotten to this point in our lives but I am so tired of striping this bed and washing sheets every day. I know my wife is because she is the one my kid was up in the middle of night to strip her wet pee soaked clothes off and put clean PJs on. I guess as dads we are automatically blocked from the kid waking us up in the middle of the night. My poor wife.
This has been going on for almost two weeks and I am tired of it. I have done everything in my power to help the situation. I started cutting her off the water an hour before bed and even pleaded with her. What else can you do? If your response is to wait it out then SHUT UP! Sorry that was a little extreme but you have to understand my frustrations.
If you have any advice please let me know.
The little one. This kid has a very serious attitude problem and if you are fooled by the cute smile then you are an idiot. Sorry again, it has been a crazy week. She actually got kicked out of class at daycare a few months ago cause she kept hitting the kids who were trying to nap. She is mean and if she does not like you then watch those tiny hands. They are about to come down on you.
I am not one to allow violence in my house by any means. Evie gets punished trust me. The only person that matters most to this little girl is her mom. If you take away the fact that her free line to unlimited milk is nestled in the breast of my bride then she would fall victim to these horrible acts of violence to. No one is safe from Evie. I don’t even get kisses from this girl. I get her forehead pushed against mine. Talk about disrespect.
Ok I am done venting now. I love my kids but sometimes that are real assholes. I mean I would walk on fire for them but sometimes I think they know this and try to take advantage of their old man. Anyways I know this is going to be temporary and I am going to look back on this post a year from now and laugh…or at least I hope.
Have a great weekend! See you next week!
After a crazy week at the office and all the stuff going on with my mom I needed a night out with one of my special ladies. She is smart, funny, and loves to carry on a conversation. My wife was busy so K-Dub.
I really have not seen her lately. With late visits at the hospital I have missed dinner and bedtime with her. So tonight I asked her if she wanted to go on a date with daddy and the excitement on her face was enough to melt my heart.
We went to the movies and saw The Secret Life Of Pets and it was cute. I bought K-Dub a little kids try with popcorn, candy and a drink and she sat in my lap and did not move.
Afterwards we went to the grocery store and headed home. She told me that she liked our date and wanted to do it again soon. I can’t wait!
So when it comes to capturing sweet dad moments, my wife is the best!
Last night K-Dub got in bed with us after she could not sleep. She scared me when she got between my wife and I. I think she had a bad dream cause she held on to me like this the entire night.
It’s these moments that make being a dad so worth it!
I don’t know why but this picture is so funny to me. I can’t help but laugh out loud every time I see it. My wife sent me this yesterday while I was in the way home. I think the people beside me at the stop light thought I was having an asthma attack.
My wife was grilling our diner outside when my daughter got off her tricycle and grabbed a take and decided to take our yard. No we do not keep a helmet on her at all times but maybe we should cause she does like to take a leap off the top of the couch.
Enjoy your Tuesday and a good laugh!
We started this past weekend off pretty good. My wife and I wanted to stay pretty close to the house cause we had a ton of stuff to get done at the house. Trying to get things done with a toddler and an infant around is damn near impossible. So we took the kids to the park.
We met up with some good friends of ours and let the kids play. They played more by themselves cause my kid is weird and does not like to play with others. I think she gets that from me. Maybe it’s because she likes to be the boss. She gets that from her mother.
When I say my toddler played hard I mean hard. We got home from the park and she wanted a snack. I gave her some goldfish crackers, which I am convinced is cocaine for kids. I proceeded to make dinner and then that’s when I heard it.
I came around the corner and found this.
I never have seen someone fall asleep with their eyes open before. My wife tell people that I do it but that is not true, also like I fart in my sleep.
Here is a better shot.
Here is to say my kid is way creepier then yours.
