Weekly Recap – May 8th, 2015

Look, I’m getting top teefs!

Friday seemed to take its sweet time getting here, but I never lost faith. The week has been busy (what’s new?), but I managed to squeeze in a book review. I’ve also been reading Wild Things, a book on nurturing boys into adulthood which pulls its inspiration from Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. It looks like mom and I better buckle up now. The ride is only going to get crazier.

Speaking of mom, it’s Mother’s Day in the US this Sunday. Very exciting for first-time mom, so I hope it all goes well. And for the rest of the moms out there, make the most of it. You all deserve way more than single’s day worth of praise. For those that aren’t mom’s, make sure you let your mom know that she played a large part in shaping the fine human being that you are.

Happy Weekend everyone!

  1. Happy Mother’s Day to your wife, Phillip!

  2. Happy Mother’s Day to your wife! The first one is always special. Make sure Angus gives her a wet, drooly kiss. 🙂

    1. There will be lots of those! 🙂 Thank you Carrie. Happy Mother’s day to you as well!

  3. I’ll be interested to hear what you think about Wild Things. Since I just had a little boy myself it might be a good book for me to pick up.

    1. Thanks Lauren. I’m a little over halfway through and it’s an eye-opener. With any book like this though, I take these to be the “general rules” (and the authors admit as much), so reality will vary. The authors also have a faith-based bent that may turn off some readers, but I didn’t find it overwhelming. Lots of interesting scientific info on why a boy’s brain typically differs from a girl’s and why they require different approaches because of that.

  4. Happy Mother’s day to Angus’ mom. He is so cute.

  5. Buckle up indeed! But it’s the best roller coaster you’ll ever ride. 🙂 I’m betting the type of Mother’s Day your wife will like most is the freedom to do nothing at all. Enjoy it!

    1. Hah, if I didn’t know you were a mom, I would have known when you guessed what type of day she wanted. 😉 Hope you had a great one as well.

  6. The only thing better than getting new teefs is losing ’em a few years later… and getting PAID for it!

  7. Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    1. Thank you Marie! We did have some fun and mom got to relax as much as possible. 😉

  8. Hope your wife had a beautiful Mother’s Day.
    Father’s Day is coming up soon! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Linda. It went very well. And crazy thought about Father’s Day… guess I better get used to it. 😉

  9. I hope you and Angus treated your wife to a wonderful first Mother’s Day. 🙂 Of course, the best husbands and kids know to let her know how great she is throughout the year, too. And yes—they should do the same for you as father. 😉

    1. I think she had a good one. At least she said so and I haven’t had to sleep on the couch… 😉 And you’re right, we need to make sure we show our appreciation all year long. I don’t know how moms do it!
