The Difference Between Sons and Daughters


My middle has worked a couple of days now and word has gotten out....

The coworkers are realizing that he is my and they're all filling me in on how much they like him and how good of a worker he is.

I'm so proud!

He's such a good and has such a sense of responsibility. I saw him working today as I was leaving to head home and I couldn't even contain my smile.

Then there's the spawn....

With no school to occupy her time all day, I spent the day receiving random texts from her.

I can't find my chapstick.

Did you steal my chapstick?

I think I have the Choronavirus.

Can you buy me a candy bar?

Dixie opened a fortune cookie that said her new life is right in front of her.


Dixie?? Who in the hell is Dixie??? When did she get chapstick???? Does she think I'm going to bring her home a candy bar because she said she has Choronavirus?????

If she thinks I'm bringing her home a candy bar after she accused me of stealing her chapstick she's sadly mistaken.

And there you have it.... The difference between sons and daughters.

    so, who the hell IS Dixie??? lol
Dixie is a character on a netflix show she's been binge watching. It sounds pretty crazy.... I think it's supposed to be purposely over the top for comedic affects.

    Yep... ❗
She's got my quirky sense of humor.... Such a stinker.

    All you have to do is think back when you where her age what your mom was thinking too.
I didn't live with my mom.... So this is all kind of new territory for me. I must be doing ok, she still tells me she loves me EVERY night before bed.

    Haha....this was the funniest post I've read today! My first thought with her concern about Coronavirus is that a candy bar is probably the furthest thing from your mind if she DID have it.
    I hope your daughter wasn't standing RIGHT IN FRONT of Dixie when she opened that fortune cookie!! LOL
It turned out Dixie was a character in a show she was watching. I got to hear about the whole sordid scenario tonight. Lol

    Your last statement sums it up beautifully!! I only have a daughter, and yes, we have had our moments too, but I know my life has been better because of her!!
They are definitely the best part of my life. My greatest accomplishments.

    thanks for sharing

    sounds like you have found your twin

    she knows just the right buttons

    have a great Thursday

    John Mayer - "Daughters"

    I know a girl
    She puts the color inside of my world
    But, she's just like a maze
    Where all of the walls all continually change
    And I've done all I can
    To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
    Now I'm starting to see
    Maybe It's got nothing to do with me
    Fathers, be good to your daughters
    Daughters will love like you do
    Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
    So mothers be good to your daughters, too
She is my mini me.... When I get home from work and finally sit down on the couch, it's the best part of my day. She snuggles right up to me, talking a mile a minute, about some of the most stupid stuff. But I smile and laugh, one day this will just be a memory.

My g-girls got on a chapstick kick a few years back, but it wasn't the chapstick that we grew up with, it was a plastic ball with chapstick in it and it's expensive compared to the old style which is about a dollar.

Being a middle child isn't easy. Be sure to tell him you are proud of him. Also, no one has perfect kids but, when they are ours they do seem that way !

All kidding aside.... My kids aren't perfect, but they are the most perfect kids for me. I couldn't imagine my life without them.
