Father’s Day 2013

Father’s Day started at 4:30am in the morning for me.

Both twins were up. Oh no, I thought, if they are not co-operating already, it’s not going to be a good day for Adam.

The older boys were up by 6:30 and Adam had a ‘sleep in’ until 7am.

He was presented with this when he woke up. You can’t read the pictures so I included them individually afterwards…


We had plans for a morning swim at the East Bank Club. I had booked the twins in the day care and we were going to take the older boys to the kiddie pool.

Aaron was so tired by 9:30am that he fell asleep in the car. Then Sam slept while at the child care. So much for a long afternoon nap for Adam. Or anyone for that matter. The twins falling off their schedule made for a much more challenging day.

But we are still in the morning, we are not tired yet and things are sunny and warm. We are all still happy. We party at the pool…


I think this was the best part of the day. Adam got a small run in, just home from the gym.

The afternoon quickly deteriorated. Everyone was tired, cranky, and misbehaving. Kids and adults both kept falling asleep at odd times in odd places. I wish it could have been a better father’s day for Adam.

I think the only positive note is that next year will surely look better when compared to this afternoon. Then we can hopefully pat ourselves on the back and be proud of how far we’ve come. Something to look forward too, Adam, something to look forward to.
