Something occurred today that very rarely happens. In fact it hasn't happened before! We were so efficient in getting ready we had time to grab a coffee & hot chocolate on the way to school! All WeeMan wanted was the delicious complimentary little cookies. I did have to bribe him for this photo. Either you participate in the photo or no cookie. Hehehe I won this round Mikey 👌🏼. I still wonder how anyone can be a "successful politician" if they haven't had children. You don't know negotiating unless you have tried to reason with a three or four year old little person who is screaming and in tears because they want the toy that is already in their hand, you cut their sandwich in triangles instead is squares or if they get the wrong colored marshmallows with a babychino! All the while you have societies judgmental eyes piercing you, this is negotiating in its purest form. No matter what you say you loose. It's all about reducing the repercussions and mitigating the fallout. #imaozdad#dadlife#stagedphoto#coffee#hotchocolate#negotiate#rescueswag#waeco#dedicateddads#morning#efficiency#briberyworks#winning#highrangeoutdoors
Telling on someone to get them into trouble (tattling) versus reporting (telling about something to help someone keep out of trouble), reveals a deeper heart issue that if not checked, can lead to gossiping, slandering or telling secrets. Handle tattles by drawing the focus back to the tattler and use it as opportunity to help teach your child how to problem-solve and figure out what situations they might be able to handle on their own.

The Kid's new favorite thing is to scream something that sounds vaguely like "dad" and then take whatever he has in his hand and slam it violently against something.
It appears he's already plotting my demise. #dads#parenting#kids#instababy#dadlife#parentingwin

3 times they interrupted when I was on an important call. 3 times. I was getting super irritated and it was starting to show. Then I was stopped in my tracks when I remembered something an old friend had once told me... "Children are not a distraction from more important work, they are the more important work." Needless to say, the call ended and we are on our way to the park for the 4th time today. #thejanous5#dadlife#dadpreneur#entrepreneur#hadleymae#coopergrace#lilmack
