Hi, Princess!

You know, for some reason I was thinking about when your mom was a little girl and I used to help her do her homework. Most parents hate to help their kids with homework, but I actually enjoyed it. Especially her math homework.

I remember helping her learn fractions. Everything from improper fractions to mixed numbers to factoring, to least common denominators, and all that good stuff.

I was looking forward to the day when I could help you learn math and science too. But you probably don’t even need help, you’re such a smarty-pants!


Anyway, just checking in to let you know I love you, love you more, love you mostest!

Waiting for the bus

Hi, Princess!

Nothing much going on right now. Just missing you. I was waiting for the bus today, and I remembered when your mom was little and we waited for the bus sometimes. Back then there were telephone booths at the bus stops. We played this trick. You could make an 800 number call for free. So your mom would dial 1-800 and just press some numbers. A business would answer. Your mom would act like she was ordering a pizza or something!

Well, it made us laugh as we were just hanging out waiting for the bus.

Anyway, I’ll catch you later.

Love you always and forever!

Labor Day

Hi, Princess!

Happy Labor Day!

Today is supposed to celebrate the workers of America, but everybody celebrates the unofficial end of summer on this holiday. I don’t really like to celebrate the end of summer, Labor Day just makes me remember that the nice weather is going to be over soon, and that winter is on the way.

But it also means that the school year is starting, and that’s a good thing!

So, have a wonderful time at school this year, and learn a lot!

Love you,

Hi Princess!

I remember when your mommy was a little girl, and she got roller skates for Christmas. She loved them! She put them on, went outside and tried to skate. Only thing was, she couldn’t skate. She was too little.

But she basically walked with the skates on, and she had a great time. She was so happy, and she looked so cute! That was one of those precious memories I’ll always hold dear.

Any way, I just wanted to share that wonderful memory.

Love ya!

Bicycle no more

Hi, baby girl!

Look, I’m sorry, but I had to sell my bike. I know a long time ago we talked about riding bikes together. Well, someone threw a rock through the windshield of my car. Since I’m poor, I had to sell my bike to defray the cost of replacing my windshield.

Here’s one for ya, look up the word “defray”!

All my love,

Blue moon

Hi, Princess!

Guess what, today there was a blue moon! I know that sounds kinda awesome, but all it really means is that there were two full moons in one month.

See, the moon goes all the way around the earth every twenty eight days. A full moon is when the moon is positioned so we see the sun’s light reflected off the moon so it looks like a big ball, and that happens once every twenty eight days.

Now, usually a full moon happens only once a month, since most months have either thirty or thirty one days. But this month, there was a full moon on July 2, an another one today, July 31. I guess it is still kinda cool!


Love you,
