Hey folks! Did not get to write adult stuff these days as I am working on Franco Kids books which takes me significant amount of time… I think kids deserve the best and I am just not there quite yet…(will I ever be?)Anyway, working my ass off to get to something that young fellows (any gender, age,colour,nationality, age group etc) could enjoy… More to follow on that, stay tuned…
Yeah, Kids deserve the best (That’s the title… you are so impressed about how I brought that up aren’t you).
One thing I can tell you is that my Kids are getting only the best….The best of me. I am a loving dad (3 young guys and a 4th on the way), and my job does not allow me to see them very often, 24 hours a week top. I work 550Km (300 miles for you my americans friends) from home and on friday nights after work, drive my old volvo at a 88 miles an hours trying to go back in time ( see ref to back to the future here ;)).
So you can imagine that when I get home it becomes pretty intense! Kids jumping everywhere pretty much yelling what they did during the week at school, with mommy with the neighbours. They show me drawing, crafts, books they got, exams, new stuff they made out of my wood scraps (sometime good stuff also:( ). All that in 3 minutes. Holy sweet Jesus every time I am shocked!!!! I get a huge hugs from all of them: From the smallest 3 years old T-Rex (Alex) all the way to my older one, biggest 6 year old guy I ever met, jumping on me and screwing my army radioman old back for the whole week end (Damn I had to sand the deck!!!) 😉
But damn I love that. So much.
I don’t like the fact that they we spend 24 hours a week together. I love the fact that my kids show me that I am important for them.
The best of me
Like I said before, 15 lines up to be more precise (pay attention!), they get the best of me,
Sometime I tickle them until they beg for forgiveness, build them wooden rifles , go in imaginary patrol and secret missions with them (they like army stuff), play lego, draw Lightining mcqueen and Mater 250 times because it is never up to their expectations….but
Sometime it gets bad baby……reaaaaaaal bad. And I think this is part of my job and my presence being important for them…
I am a bearer of discipline in the house, and I know, sometime they get some retroactive loads of discipline and sometime some proactive in order for mommy to not be submerged with questionable behaviors for the upcoming week.
In any case, Father’s day is coming up and……I would like to remind all dads the importance of being closed to their kids, passionate and support them in their growing which include sometime….
“Kicking” their small impolite butts 😉
