Go Ahead and Tell Everybody….
Some times a guy just has to flex his muscles….
And so it is on the way to school when I take Dylan and her best friend. (lol, I’m sorry that just sounds silly even to me after I reread those first two sentences)
Most every morning we are
forced enjoying Kidzbopp on the way to school as the girls like to sing to the pop songs. It usually puts them in a good mood and so most mornings I kinda encourage it.
But when one song comes up I make sure they know…
“I’m The Man,
I’m the Man,
I’m the man..”
Well go ahead and play it while you read..It will reinforce
my the story…
You see after dinner Dylan came walking in crying big crocodile tears. We sat her down on the sofa and asked what was wrong. She told us she lost one of her brand new flip flops she had just received from the great Aunt Sue down the storm drain in front of our house.
As flip flops go, these were nice for a kid. She had just received them as a birthday present a month earlier when Aunt Sue was down.
You could tell through her tears she was sad from losing them before ever having a chance to truly wear them for the summer. I know she was looking forward to that.
She was scared she would get in trouble. And she was afraid she would hurt her Aunt Sue’s feelings by not having them any more.
You really hated to see her crying and so sad about her new fashion flip flops.
So I said show me what happened.
What would you or your spouse do?
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Yes, I went in the garage and gathered a big screw driver and a hammer and I pried up that manhole cover to see what I could see. There it was.
So I went back into the house,
found a step ladder,
and took a deep breath….
OK, well maybe not THE man. I’m just a regular schmoe.
But to my girls, Daddy still needs to be The Man for his Daddy’s girls.
And where was Skylar all this time?
Well she was inside finishing my daily helping of birthday cake!
Dylan can’t blame her this time!
Does anyone know what these are?
What a gift, huh?
I will give you a hint, that is my name on there….
Winners to be revealed on Friday.
Have a great week knuckleheads.
I will try to do better next time
Is anyone ready for summer?
