Conversation while on vacation...

JJ: Daddy, can you buy me one of those stupid useless toys that I will play with for two seconds and then loose? (Okay that was not exactly what he said, but you get the point.)

Jonathan: Sorry buddy, I'm totally broke.

Moment of silence.

JJ: Daddy, how did you break?

Rules for Parents at School Functions

Over the past couple weeks there have been many, MANY end of the year school functions. Sweet Pea has provided me a set of rules I am to follow when attending such functions with her:

1) No hugs or kisses. Obviously.
2) No whispering to her.
3) No singing - even if everyone else is singing.
4) No talking about boys.
5) Do not be embarrassing in any way.

I am troubled she felt she had to set these "rules" for me, though the only I really struggled with was number 3 - no singing. When there was a group song at her class picnic and I started to sing she gave me a look of death. Guess I won't be doing that again.

So far the only one JJ seems to be in agreement with is number (1) - which has been very clear to me all year. When the bus arrives to pick him for school I have to suffer with simply a wave....

It's not easy being a parent.

Everybody needs somebody to lean on....

In this case, it happens to be a dog.
