The Dad’s List Series continues after a little (medium-size?) hiatus.
Super stoked to be back with another edition, this one like, “…FIVE golden rings, four calling birds…”, no wait, stay on track. Just a little humor is at play; almost never a bad thing, humor.
But to the matter at hand…The Number Five Dad’s List, or “A Dad’s List, #5 — without any further delay, here you go…!
1/ Helping your kid in the middle of the night; like when they fall out of bed. Compassion, and a little humor too, might be appropriate to cope, for him or her, and you too.
2/ Dancing in the family room to a toy piano playing “Old MacDonald…”, or whatever that song was.
3/ Kids reminding me to say bedtime prayers; instead of the other way around.
4/ Eating left overs, especially cold, kid’s leftovers, builds your adaptability, provides fuel in the immediate, reduces waste, and increases your appreciation for hot meals.
5/ Being Happy and Helpful is super important to keeping a family humming along successfully. Much better than nagging.
6/ Nagging is never really the best option, or very effective either.
7/ Up early is still the best option during the week. But sleeping in a bit on the weekend is also worthwhile, and helpful to overall rest, and feels really GOOD.
8/ Dishes don’t wash themselves. But if they pile up on occasion, for a little while, no biggie.
9/ I love my wife. A LOT.
10/ Fancy dress up before dinner, during that dance performance. Including fancy sparkly shoes. Super fun.
