I loved this reminder of the great truth from The Little Prince from one of my favorite podcasts, Checking In with Susan David:

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.

For those who were wondering, I broke up the hand drawn image for my wallpaper into two separate widgets. 😊

Apple killed my vibe with iOS 14 removing support for an empty Home Screen (on left in iOS 13). Luckily, Widgetsmith came to my rescue (on right in iOS 14). Great work, and thanks _DavidSmith!

😂 Stupid bees

My 2yo was sitting next me eating breakfast and turned and sprayed on the side of my face.

Me: “We don’t spit on people.”

2yo: “Oh, ok. But I like to spit on bees. Cuz they’re stoopid.”

Me: “Oh, that’s not a nice word.”

2yo: “It’s not for people. It’s just for bees. Cuz they’re stoopid.”

😂 Having a moment

My wife came down to grab her phone and called a greeting through my office door. I popped out to say hi, and we were embracing when our 8yo came down the stairs. I didn’t know who it was, but I could hear a child coming down, so I said, “Hold on! We’re having a moment.”

😂 Thought not

My 8yo came down with some coupons from a mailer to ask if I went to some of these places by myself, and if so, he would give me the coupons.

8yo: “Do you go to Popeyes?”

Me: “Yes.”

8yo: “Knew it. Here you go. Burger King?”

8yo: “Thought not. Arby’s?”

Me: “No.”

8yo: “I thought you’d go there. They have great cheese sticks. Or whatever they’re called.”

😂 Cold Dr. Pepper

My 2yo was drinking out of his cup as I got him ready for bed, and as he finished it, I asked, “Would you like more water?”

2yo: “There is no more water. It all gone.”

Me: “Would you like me to get you more?”

2yo: “Oh, yes. Can you put some from yours into here?”

I poured some more water in and went to put his lid on, but he stopped me, “Will you not put the lid on? It’s not for right now.”

As he started drinking, he said, “Oh, I love Dr. Pepper.”

Me: “Yeah, it’s so good.”

2yo: “This cold Dr. Pepper ‘minds me. I love cold Dr. Pepper.”
