I know I'm behind a bit in my blogging duties of late, but, let me tell ya, summer with a six-year-old who is used to the structure of a regular school day is definitely not for the weak of heart. Yikes…it's been one big, crazy event after another since school got out in May. Crazytown!
Anyway, in the spirit of finally getting back on track, here are some of the best pics from Greta's Father's Day weekend dance recital. Enjoy!
The best thing about being away for a week is that the ladies in my life really, really miss me when I’m gone. And even though all three of us had a weird stomach bug all week — nothing like being sick in a hotel room! Fun! — Mrs. Yeti and Greta have been crazy nice to me since I got home.
If you don’t believe me, just check out the super cool sign that was waiting for me on the back door when I drove up. In case you were wondering, that’s our gardener José on the left with the three eyes. Greta said he is mowing over a giant red worm in the grass with his lawnmower. I don’t know what that means, but, man, it’s good to be home!
As my own time in diaper-land winds down — yes, save for a few spectacular peeing episodes in the living room, Greta is almost fully potty-trained at this point. Hooray! — I thought it was kind of ironic that one of the best Father’s Day tributes I found online came courtesy of Huggies. That’s right, even Huggies knows that modern Dad’s do their fare share of the child rearing these days and their super-cool photo collage really says it all.
I know I shouldn’t get all teary-eyed over a diaper ad, but, honestly, even before Greta came along, I was a sucker for baby with daddy pictures. And now that she’s here, well, forget about it, I cry about everything to do with kids. Seriously, I’m about as sappy as they come. Urgh…
Anyway, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. Whether you stay at home or work your butt off to make up for it on nights and weekends…we are all in this together. Saludos, amigos!
