Can anyone see a bottle in the background..? This area is becoming a favorite spot of mine in my back yard. It's where I take my son to shoot his BB gun. I've never seen a toy light up the eyes of a kid until I bought that for my boy. It would be like be getting a 35K dollar truck. Anway we go in this area every weekend / shoot his gun and talk. My son has anxiety and its a moment in every week when we talk and he really tells me what is going on/ what he likes at school/what he does not/ and why. My game plan for parenting has always been to come home from work and hang out with my kids. I get up at 5 am and my wife and I get an hour from 8-9 every night.
I know I bitch about working two jobs all the time but when my kids and I get to actually spend time together it makes it all worth the while. Maybe its because my 43rd birthday is coming up or maybe it's because the apple does not fall far from the tree. But lately I'm missing my kids allready because I know they will be gone in a short time to college. Ok their only seven but man time is flying.
I call my parents a few times a week now. But there was a time I did not have to much time for them. That I guess is what makes me nervous...that college time...
Anyway try and spend some time with your kids today and be happy. Life is very short and so is your time with your kids.
