I am standing outside in the Trader Joe’s parking lot listening to a friend melt down for a bit. She is overwhelmed. I listen as patiently as possible. I give her a hug. We talk about things for a bit more….I really should be working. But I want to give her some space to tell me what is going on. I am considering my gift for the day. I offer to hang out with her….maybe even go get some food. I really hope that she starts feeling better. Sorry, I can’t get into the details. It is private stuff. Then I work all day….at the end of the day one of my other coworkers sends me home with a bunch of milar balloons for Darwin. Before I leave I give 3 of them away to kids in the store….when I get home Darwin gets super surprised and excited. Balloons make his day….and dada wins!
More fun wood block drawings. I really like this one. I love me some elephants! By nature they are strong but they have a huge soft side. I kind of identify with that. I try to be strong….and sometimes I let the soft side through. But really that is humanity. I mean no one can be strong all the time. It is impossible and ridiculous. Well I am off to be ‘Dad of the year’….take care.
