Dating is going
Or more aptly put, be open for what might discover us. It’s the time we let life lead us instead of forcing the issue. If you’re not familiar with this term, it’s really quite simple. We don a hat and the coolest pair of sunglasses we can afford, throw every possible accessory we might need into the trunk of our car, and head out to discover what we can discover. I knew I would need some structure, so I formulated a plan in the form of Daddy Day Camp. When I was only meeting one girl a month, there were so many qualities that I didn’t like that I would ignore simply because I didn’t want to have to start all over with someone else.I would continue to date someone negative or rude or conceited and would just hope that things would just eventually “work themselves out”.I stopped defending the poor qualities my dates had and started moving on.
On one occasion when things were going very poorly, instead of stressing out, I told my date I didn’t think we were a great match but that we could still have fun over dinner.We act like children, exploring the endless adventure that summer is. The first day the kids and I had a meeting, where I handed out the daily agenda. When dealing with three kids who specialize in being hungry all the time, forgetting to use the bathroom when it’s available, fighting over anything and everything, and throwing their stuff all over the house, you need something to stop this endless cycle. I’m the boss until you turn eighteen, or until you’re big enough to ignore me and then back it up. Written by “One of the Guys” Summer holds a sacred place in the hearts of men. We feel empowered to turn possibility into reality. My wife said, “Just get one of those big blow up pools. They can play in that all summer.” I said, “But that would mean I have to supervise the whole time. I need stuff for them to do so I can get some of my own work done. We play as if life weren’t as complicated as it is. I need more balance.” She said, “Good luck with that.” “Thanks Honey.” So I instituted Daddy Day Camp.
