January 6, 2017 - Father Fail Day
So a health clinic lied to me today…go figure. They said on the radio yesterday that they had a petting zoo in their parking lot today at 4. To be honest, I was a little skeptical (there is like a foot of snow outside) but I made the mistake of telling the kids anyway. I was going to take them, and when I confirmed it wasn’t really happening and I told the kids…they were really bummed.
|Our oldest petting a miniature horse. She looks...ecstatic...|
In retrospect, I should have taken them to do something else fun, but at the time I had a good amount of work to do. I did that instead, but I wish I had spent the time with them. I’m thinking I’m going to try to make it up to them on Saturday or Sunday. I have an idea…
|At least I made them some Dunlevy Snow Cones...that should give me a few points at least.|
|I didn't even get a pic with Dave...shame. And word to the wise, spend more than two bucks on your cigars|
I left for two hours and came back and they were all still wound up and she was a wreck on the couch. But at least I smoked my cigar, right? Some days, you just fail as a father and a husband. But that’s okay, at least I try and they still love me.
