What am I best at?

Today driving around I ask my daughter what she thought ,in her opinion I was the best at.  

You have to bet on your strengths in life and accept your weaknesses.  In business , focus on what to do best and hire the rest. 

Her reply was so touching.

“Being a dad of course “

Loving your work

The pompoms orders are picking up at school. Tehani had to look on her tablet to see what Elmo looked like.
“If i wake up before my alarm clock, can I get up, get dressed quietly and start working on my pompoms?”

Great lesson here about loving what you do. When is the last time you thought -“I wish tomorrow I wake up before my alarm clock  so I can make it to work a bit earlier.”?

How many of you can say that?

Jordan walked up to me today with an important question he said;

-Do dragon exists? 

-I’m affraid not son.

– Aw man! REALLY? how come dragons don’t exist? That’s TWO things now that I think exist and they don’t!!!!!!! And he walked away visibly upset.

Well I knew he wasn’t talking about Santa Claus , we saw a documentary on it on YouTube when he was little. He promise to not tell other kids of his class from kindergarten till now.

What on earth could it be? I had to ask…

–  MERMAIDS DUH!!!

-AH!! Duh is right ! I feel your pain son.i really do.
