I put on a pretty good face for The Lucky Wife. Blogging is addictive because you get to control how others view your past actions. Hell, it might as well be a time machine. But the truth is, sometimes, I’m less than perfect.
For instance, sometimes I get upset when I wake up early to cook a batch of gangsta cinnamon rolls…
only to have the kids eat seven (Alice 2, Owen 1, Sebastian 4) leaving me with one.
Sometimes I get flustered when our painter calls in the middle of the day needing a decision on paint colors that Maria and I discussed a month ago but I don’t remember and she’s sleeping on the other side of the world so I just have to choose.
And sometimes I get downright irate when I only get two compliments on being a man with three <5 year olds in a grocery store on a Sunday.
But even after the LONG weekend and an even longer workday I found the strength to keep the kids in a good mood through dinner. Stalled for a little bit with some treats. Played a little bit. Put on an a TV show or two. And kept the kids up a little late to watch their hero talk about making the world a smarter place live on Filipino national news.
Because no matter what I do, she’s better than me. And I’m glad they get to look up to her like I do.
But watch your back…
