What's my name?

So the other day I did the following (not in any order):

  • washed dishes
  • made dinner
  • made lunch
  • made breakfast
  • went food shopping
  • went to 1 cleaners establishment to drop off Mom's pants
  • went to another cleaners establishment to pick up Mom & Dad's clothes for the week
  • bought a birthday present & wrapped it (in a gift bag nonetheless)
  • and too the #HastyKids bowling alongside Gabriella for the party she had to attend.
All in all I would say it was a productive day. However, what made the day so special was when Molly entitled me Super Dad, out of the side of her mouth.

I still love you!

Summer Reading

Dear Gabriella,

You are tearing this Summer Reading thing up, huh? I am so proud of you. You are 4 books deep and the summer reading program just started on Monday.

Keep an eye on the words, special, why, whole and spot. I am so proud of your achievements and excellent reading. I think you're going to be the as aggressive as Molly was last summer.


I don't like being late...

Dear Molly,

I learned something about you yesterday. You don't like being late. I should have known this for a while because you leave for school with Gabriella pretty early to leave room for error.

You don't like being late. You were upset at me yesterday because we arrived at your Music camp 5 minutes late, even though I knew they weren't going to start on time. The principle is, you don't like being late.

Had I known that they were going to dismiss 5 minutes earlier than they said, I wouldn't have been late for you on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Sorry for being late whenever I was and I now know that you don't like being late.

Love always,

God Help Me Quentin...

Dear Quentin,

It is so hard to discipline you this summer. Ever since I took you out of Daycare you have been off the hook! You are whining, yelling, hitting, screaming and crying when you don't get your way. What gives?

I love you! With that said, calm down and everything's gonna be alright!

You are the youngest and my only boy! Mom and I love you dearly! That won't ever change and the aforementioned adjectives show just how much we care for you. Please curb your attitude to maximize the fun we can have together. Otherwise, your hour-long whining, yelling, hitting, screaming and crying will turn into hour-long time-out visits.

The grudge that Molly never let go

Dear Molly,

I know that when I pulled your hair it hurt you physically and emotionally. I'm sorry now and shortly after it happened. I was just playing around but I wanted to let you know that when you yelled at me it hurt my feelings also. What hurts the most is that I told you about your lack of an apology and you still didn't apologize.

I don't want to blow this out of proportion but any apology would have been great coming from you and you didn't offer one. do you know why it didn't? As you read this, please don't let situations get the best of you. Forgive and move on because life's too short.

Maybe Quentin...maybe...

Dear Quentin,

What a day we had today (i.e. Wednesday). I mean missing or delaying nap time is not a good look, huh? I wish you would articulate that.

No worries. Next year I plan to keep you in school that extra week when the girls are stuck there. How does that sound? I'm sure pretty good when the time comes because this will be your last year.

Time is flying and I want to bookmark this moment to make you aware that I'm aware that you need a nap!
