I Hope I Don’t Have What It Takes To Be THAT Parent

I ran across a pair of articles online while hanging out with Liam and Molly on our couch tonight.

Both provoked thoughts which helps complete the day.

David Brooks’ column in the NY Times is centered around President Obama’s most recent Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan. But I tried to connect the story to my life and I think on some levels I’m too safe. Do I possess a professional and strategic attitude toward life? Take a quick read. I think I might be a little disturbed as he describes at the end. It might be time to question the status quo a little more often.

Lastly, Julie Deardorff of the Trib wrote about How to not scream at your child athlete. I know I have some time to prepare for this stuff, but it’s never too early to take precautions.

Bachelor Night

Our goddaughter Tess flew into the very Windy City this morning with her mom Sarah. I can’t wait to see them. I was hoping to get out there today or tomorrow, but it looks like Thursday. We’ve been Skyping with them from Long Island and Tess is growing up so quickly.

I really can’t wait for her to interact with SulliChild. I think that will be really cool.

With that said, SulliMom made her way to Barrrrrrington to hang out, while I did a little UIC-WIU softball announcing. So I am home alone. Which means…

Mac ‘N Cheese and watching the Titanic.

Just me watching the Titanic.

Anytime I miss my wife, I look for the James Cameron classic on television and hunker down.

Our child is in trouble.

LASTLY: Apparently, Jim Mateja, the long time auto writer is calling it quits. One of the stories featured is an article he composed about auto companies trying to accommodate women who were expecting among other family needs. It made for a funny photo…

I don't think I'd do well with being pregnant.
