If you ask any of the grandparents around here my kids are perfect except:
They should be in swimming lessons.
They should be taking Karate.
Ian should be in speech therapy.
The children need their own computer because I won’t ever let them use mine.*
I should pay more attention to the children. I spend to much time on the computer. (I work from home. About 36 – 40 hours a week. The kids aren’t in school right now. At all.)
Claudia needs to be in ballet.
I should be taking the children to the pool/beach/library/park more.
I should get a (real) job.
I should stay here longer. I should come visit more. I should do a family meet up in August and I should come back to Florida in November. I should join a gym. I should spend less money. I should cook more. I should have taken time off of work when I came to visit.
And I promise – I will get right on top of all of this as soon as I can score some clones that shit money and can figure out how to get the kids to leave the house without fighting about putting on their damn shoes.

* This one came out of nowhere. The kids do use my computer, which, makes it very difficult for me to get any work done because my job is all on the internet.
