NEW BLOG ALERT!
Have you recently taken over a routine that was usually done by your partners?... bathtime, bedtime, the school run? It's not easy, and it can leave you feeling down knowing that your child won't respond the same way to you as your partner... read my experiences of taking over the bedtime routine here: http://bit.ly/SDJ-Bedtime
Today, my #Dad told me a joke. I talk to my dad every day. Our #conversations pretty much go the same all the time. He want to know about #Bonnie, the #temperature, and what am I doing. At the end, I must promise to #kiss Bonnie for him.
I tell him I want to hear his #voice, what he is #thinking about, who has called or visited. I tell him how #hot it is and ask if he would like to come and help me work in the hay field when it is over 100 degrees. We #laugh because that is a #joke between us from the old days when we worked our #farm. This is our #routine unless he has a joke to tell me.
He always opens with, “Have I told you the #story?” I always say, “NO.” Today, he told me about a man stopping a little boy on the street to ask how to get to the #post office. The little told him to go two blocks, take a left and he would see the post office.
The man thanked him and told him he was a new #preacher in town. He invited him and his family to visit his #church. He #promised to tell them how to get to #heaven.
The little boy said, “No, thank you. If you do not know how to get to the post office, you will not know how to get to heaven.” Dad and I laughed together and promised to talk to each other #tomorrow.
