๐Ÿ˜‚ Tooth fairy

Micah (7yo): โ€œIf I get my tooth out, Iโ€™ll get like a dollar. Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™ve been getting for the last ones.โ€

Me: โ€œWhat if you get 10ยข?โ€

Micah: โ€œThen I would be so mad. I would just leave a little bomb under there that would… What time does the tooth fairy come?โ€

Me: โ€œYou never know.โ€

Micah: โ€œUgh. Then I would just set it to go off in the morning. And I would make it look like a tooth. I wish she would leave me $100. Then I would have lots of money and be revenged for the 10ยข.โ€

Micah: โ€œDad, I get way more than 10ยข. Add another zero and a dollar sign.โ€

๐Ÿ’ฎ I had a hard time sleeping last night, and kept thinking about what mark I want to leave on the world. After my family, I feel like the best thing I can do right now is to increase awareness and decrease stigma of mental health, especially in the workplace.

๐Ÿ’ฎ The key to recovery is progress. Ask yourself every day, โ€œWhat can I do that is hard today?โ€ Keep working towards your goals.

This is something I want to write more about soon that has been on my mind lately.

โšพ๏ธ Congrats to the Washington Nationals! First World Series won as a franchise, and first time the road team has won every game in a postseason final.

After spending the last few days recovering from hernia surgery by laying around watching shows, Iโ€™m reminded how doing nothing for too long can make you feel like shit. ๐Ÿค•

7yo went into the bathroom with his cookies, after asking for books to be slid under the door. As he went in the bathroom, he let out a curdling scream. When he came out, we asked, โ€œWas there a fly?โ€

โ€œHashtag a million fruit flies. And there was a fly.โ€

My Do Not Disturb sign fell off my resort door, so I just had to get up to have the minibar restocked. #roughlife #releasenotesconf


โ€œDad, I had a level 10, super-weird dream. I canโ€™t even explain it. It was too weird. Well, I can explain part of it–with a dog. It was a mix of some movies. From Coco there were a couple of the dogs. And from National Treasure, it was the people. It was so weird.โ€

Me: โ€œCan anyone clean up Clue for us?โ€

14yo, while looking down at the phone: โ€œI can.โ€

Me: โ€œGreat, thanks!โ€

14yo: โ€œWait, what!?โ€

Wife: โ€œYouโ€™re cleaning up the Clue game.โ€

14yo: โ€œDo I have to?โ€

Wife: โ€œYes! It will be a lesson in listening.โ€
