Reality vs the Internet

True conversation, with a window nearby…

 

One day on the flight home…

A parent’s day is always full of surprises…

It’s called growing up…

Do it all

Ahhhh September with your cooler air, fall colours and incessant-punch-to-the-face scheduling nightmare.

First day of school archive

Hard to believe 7 years ago this was the scene playing out as we dropped our son off for grade 1. Today, my grade 8’er zoomed away on his bike with a wave and a smile, and my grade 10’er got picked up by a friend.

The days are long but the years are short. Enjoy the ride.

The definition of insanity…

She raises a good point… Are all parents therefore insane?

Happy Father’s Day

dadsday2108We have a responsibility each and every day to be the best father and partner we can be in raising our kids. Loving our kids is part and parcel with loving and respecting their moms.  Showing up, being present and modelling the kind of behaviour we would like our kids to emulate comes with the job but don’t forget to enjoy the process. Life moves quickly – take a moment this Father’s Day to appreciate all that you have in being a dad and spend some time with the people that make up your family. They, and you, are worth the effort.

Happy Father’s Day.

Love and anger
