I assume to most people the end of summer is something to mourn, but for me it’s a welcomed landmark. Summer is the time of year when I get the most overloaded. August is the worst of the summer months because of my job, planning and packing for vacation, and my daughter’s birthday, it is a month that seems to fly-by. The whole summer actually goes by to fast for my liking, but like I said I’ve grown to enjoy seeing it come to an end. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer weather, summer actives, and damn near everything about summer but because of my job it’s something I’ve also come to loath.
This might actually be the last time I state that I’m happy summer is coming to a close. In the next couple of weeks my daughter is starting Kindergarten. Soon the summers will be the only free time we have as a whole family since she’s beginning her academic “career”. Add that to the big pile of bummer that’s been growing since the summer began. The dark cloud of “my little girl is growing up” has been hanging low all summer as my wife and I have been getting her ready for the big “K” (Kindergarten). All the paperwork, the back to school shopping, the packed lunch planning (she’s a picky eater), the open houses at her school. For as much pride you have in your child’s growth it also a huge kick to the gut to see them get older.
This was a lot to say (and feel as I typed it), when all I wanted to say was – my posts may be a little spotty this month because of all the stuff going on. I’ll do my best and I’m looking forward to September to get back to all my silly toy, cartoon, and childhood posts.
Thanks for sticking with me….
Keep Being Rad and Stay Dorky,
