Pep talk

We’ve had such a slew of bad nights again – without my posts from last week the memory of good nights would already have faded from my frazzled mind.

At least someone is sleeping in my bed

I wanted to give myself a pep talk this morning but nothing was coming. I asked Cal to help me out and he delivered this:

It’s not bad. Maybe I would have started with a compliment to me instead of the kids and himself, but no one is a smith from birth, as the Finns say.

  • Dad, Dad, I Want a Cuddle
  • Äiti, I’m Talking to You, Where Are You?, and the indomitable
  • What’s Happened to My Blanket.

This way at least the Paterson Boy Choir can limit its activity to matinee performances.

I saw this meme earlier and thought it was funny because it’s true:
