“Oh sleep, where art though? Why hast thou forsaken me?” | Quotes for every parent with little children... In the last couple days, I’ve heard a few people with small kiddos talk about the lack of sleep and how brutal it is. I’ve been there and walked through that (and still am) and I totally know what you mean and what you are feeling.... how could this little bundle of joy, hope, love and innocence... how could this squishy cheek, bright eyed, dwaddling wonder be the destroyer of sleep and the purveyor of dreamed deprived rage... How is it that it only takes a 12lb baby not sleeping to turn me into the Hulk and I start flinging stuffed bunnies at stuffed dinosaurs while pile driving that never ending siren of a fire truck into the floor.... sleep - where are you!!! Want to know something... I miss it. Like... a lot. The pitter-patter of my lil girls feet across our wood floor as she comes and crawls into our bed late at night. Falling asleep next to oldest and waking up in my clothes at 2:27am and hearing innocence in every breathe. For anyone with little kids... count it all joy. Every. Bit. Of. It. I’m not saying it’s hard - but it disappears like early morning mist. They aren’t kids forever. #parenting
“Nature is so indifferent, so unappreciative. Whenever I am walking in the park here, I always feel that I am no more to her than the cattle that browse on the slope, or the burdock that blooms in the ditch.” | Oscar Wilde I wrote a great quote (on my previous post) by one of my favourite architects and my amazing brother (@abernathycarpentry) responded with this quote…. #family #bestbro #worstbro #favouritebro
My dear son, I wish you the strength to face challenges with confidence, along with the wisdom to choose your battles carefully. I wish you a heart that is always tender, soft and open and a mind that is joyful and thoughtful. I wish you hands that are strong enough to accomplish dreams yet soft enough to safely cradle the dreams of others. I wish for you a back that is straight so that you may stand when your heart says to, even when others may bend. I wish for you to be a better man than I ever could be because you have the gift of your mother in you. Of all things though, I wish you hope and joy. That it may be your strength in hard times and an uncertain future. That it may be your standard to rally around and that it may be your gift to rest in. My dear son I wish all of this for you and more.
You know what’s awesome... filming videos and stuff and having like a bazillion hours of footage.. you know what’s not awesome - having a bazillion hours of footage but it takes your computer 30 minutes to render 18 seconds... I’ll make a full video someday... maybe #ohwell #needmorespeed @travelalberta
Love - it’s kind of a funny thing. Sick kids - messy house - it’s f@%$ing snowing (still) and today is just another Monday... but it’s another Monday with you and that’s pretty much all that matters... even if you are wearing those nappy, checkered print PJ’s your Mum got all of us for Christmas.
This is an #ad for @ToyotaCanada and their 2018 #RAV4Trail. You know what’s not an ad? The deep love I have for my son. The fatherly instinct to keep him and his buddy (@milathemastiff) safe at all times. It’s a scary thought to know that I can't always keep him safe from anything and everything - but it’s also reassuring to know that the #RAV4 has Toyota Safe Sense Standard and I don't have to go at it alone. Thanks Toyota. #FollowMyTrail #Toyota #Sponsored
The plan was to drive all over Alberta. Go to our favourite scenic spots. Enjoy the sun and the snow. However, when it snows almost 2 feet in 24 hours and whiteout conditions are everywhere, plans change. However, with the 2018 @ToyotaCanada #RAV4Trail and its all wheel-drive - there was a solution and it was pretty black and white. You take a different #trail.You step on the gas and play in the deepest, fluffiest snow you have ever seen. #noregrets #Toyota #RAV4 #FollowMyTrail #Sponsored
Southern Alberta. It’s not world famous like Banff or Canmore, but I think it’s more wild. More adventurous. It’s not made for the hotel connoisseurs. The back road #trails go forever out here, and with the 2018 @ToyotaCanada #RAV4Trail and its 10mm increased suspension lift, it allowed us to take whatever trail we wanted. #FollowMyTrail #Toyota #RAV4 #sponsored
