Before I had children I never really cared to hear too much about what “kids” were doing on any given day. Then when The Boss and I were trying to conceive (all 4 years!) I really didn’t want to hear about other kids because we were there struggling just to have our own. Today? I’m a Dad and more importantly I’m a Parent. Why is that important? Well, we all share the same common bond, the love for our children.
It occurred to me today how much a part of the “Parenting” Community I’m really in. Well yes, I read all the magazines, search the web, heck I’m writing a Daddy Blog. What really made me realize though was a simple thought that passed through my head. I was at work feeling a bit down and without even thinking about it, picked up my phone and tweeted this message:
“Hey Guys and Gals! Tell me something cute or funny about your kids today! I need something to lift me up! #DadsTalking“
Without hesitation the first thing I thought of was kids! I didn’t see my babies today because I left for work before they got up. Considering Jake is 13 months and O is 29 months I wasn’t getting any texts from them either. Although, I will say, O is terribly close! So, I thought I’d at least get to feed off of some of the love out there that other parents have. To be honest I really didn’t think anyone would respond. Boy, was I wrong! Below are the responses I got from everyone to my Tweet. These are all great parents that I actually talk (okay tweet with) on a regular basis. I encourage you to go follow them on Twitter if you’re not already and to especially read their blogs. After all, we’re all parents, we all love our children and what better thing to talk about than the ones we cherish the most??
My son is 18 months old. He knows where his penis is. Y’all sure do learn that early. #DadsTalking
D2 just started giggling.Still perfecting the facial expressions/noises that make her laugh but it’s the best thing#DadsTalking
We’ve been teaching my son to roar like a dragon (his Halloween costume) and it is the darn cutest thing ever.
Mine told that she was funny today. Then she told me I was a good girl.
as I was talking to Max (7months) earlier, I got a “frog” in my throat and cleared it. Max has been grunting ever since.
My little boy told me no singing in the car this morning because I was cramping his solo. LOL
when my son was pottytraining he asked me to hold his hand to go #2 in the Potty. He said “Hold my hand Mommy, its a big one. It scares me!”
Everly now says ‘mama mama’ which is cute and awesome….until she’s crying it lol. Then it’s still cute, but less awesome.
Caleb loves to sing songs. He sings the Blue’s Clues & Goodbye songs. He tries to do all the movements too.
Subbed @ preschool. Kid home center put hands on hips & yells “WHY DON’T YOU EVER CLEAN THIS?” Bet he heard that someplace…
If anyone subsequently tweeted me a response after I posted this, I apologize, and really appreciate your friendship online.
