Dad Things - Issue #34

Hi everyone,
We’re counting down to the end of summer. In years past, I was counting down the days until the kids went back to school. When they were younger, they required a lot more hands-on attention. They couldn’t do anything without us, especially the younger one. 
“Daddy, play with me!”
“Daddy, I’m hungry!”
“Daddy, I’m bored!”
Nowadays, it kind of feels like the opposite. Our boy is a lot more independent, and it’s a lot easier working from home since he can entertain himself. I’m probably going to miss taking them on lunch breaks and running errands. It’ll be a lot quieter around the house.
At the beginning of summer, we were wondering how we would make it to the end of summer. We had some summer camps, a vacation, and a few activities planned, but not every week had something planned. And now, it seems like the summer flew by way too quickly.
As someone once said, “The days are long but the years are short.”
And now, on to some links.

We were eating dinner and it was really quiet because we were enjoying our food. My 5-year-old out of nowhere, "so I didn't get that promotion." Her comedic timing was perfect. I can't stop laughing. I'm so proud.

Anyone ever get up so early with their kid, your parenting is just laying lifeless on the ground, throwing different toys at them for the first 2 hours of the day?
