    Default Remember to do the simple things

    So my wife has a career that takes her away from home every now and then. Right now she's in Orlando for a pet expo. She works for Petsmart corp. and makes new toys, collars and what not for pets.

    I get to be Mr. Mom for a couple day's at a time. I take her into day care kinda late, around 10:30 or so because I like to make her breakfast. She loves my scrambled eggs with mild ortega chili's, cheese and some ham on the side. She'll make a mess of the plate, her clothes and the high chair. Then I'll send in our Weimaraner to clean up. You should see her with her plate and fork like a pan handler while I prepare breakfast. She loves this stuff and it's fun seeing her smile.

    Then I'll spend the next hour trying to find the sippy cup full of milk hidden somewhere around the house before it turns to cheese.

    Remember to to the simple things. Spending some father daughter time is paramount if you want to keep them off the pole.

    Thank God there are some fathers out there that will never read this so that the pole will be occupied for future generations to enjoy.

    Jordy <----has put many girls through college that way.

    p.s. Stop being such a sentimental pussy. Put something about guns to redeem yourself now.

    Remember that scene from Grumpy old men where the old guy leaves a dead fish in the other guys back seat of his car?

    I'm gonna do that to you except it'll be a diaper with partially digested grapes.

    I can say I know exactly where you are coming from.

    I'll be spending a lot of time away from home in the months ahead. It is going to hurt...

    Enjoy these years. They pass all to quickly and you find it's way to quite around the house at times. I learned if you treat them well, they come back often and if you are selfish they move to Massachusetts. Mama and I have six and we're the luckiest parents on earth. My California daughter just left after a week long visit and we went over to her last weekend. The rest live here and are at our home nearly every day. We're lucky that way.

    Now, don't forget that these kids leave and you are left with Mama for the duration. That being the case, it would do us all to remember their needs - you know, the ones that they say doesn't matter. My wife has fresh flowers on the counter and has had for the past 5 years or so. She says she doesn't need them then spends 1/2 hour trimming and choosing the right vase and location. It's Valentine's day Saturday so lest we forget, I thought it wise to remind.

    Yup, my daughter is in Kindergarten now, but that was my routine too.

    That's what I like about working for myself - I get to do what I want, whenever I want. That mostly consists of making wifey's life easier, and spending as much time possible with my daughter.

    Be forewarned though....no matter how much time or love I shower my daughter with - I still get kicked to the curb when mommy shows up

    Cutie pie BTW

    Very cute lil girl!

    My sister in law works for Petsmart, wonder if your wife knows her. She is a financial adviser in the corporate office (phoenix)
    Happy to help with your insurance needs, Jamie

    Nice C-Dog!! I really enjoy spending time with my 13 year old son, he is so charasmatic and cool. I take time to enjoy Rhino rides, boating, and just about anything we can do together, even just watching TV. He's getting to the age were friends are gonna be more important(so to speak) than his parents so I just make sure that I teach him the correct things in life and hope he learns from our experiences together. I can't wait till I feel he's old enough to suck back a few coldies with me, or at least be my D.D. LOL. I know at times I can just lay in bed and really appreciate what a wonderful son I have, usually tears me up.

    Enjoy the time with your daughter. I surely miss those days as well when my daughter was the same age.

    Thumbs up

    Cool thread!

    I remember when I let my lab come in and clean up after the kids. The floor always stayed clean that way. Gotta love mans best friend.

    These are the years that build their minds and attitudes. Keep doing what you're doing. It'll pay off ten fold over the years to come.

    Way to go.
