A new baby is like the beginning of a lot of things in life - full of wonder, hope and a dream of possibilities. Desiree, Cayden, Gabriel and I are over the moon excited to have baby Lucas now a part of the family! He’s happy, he’s healthy, and he’s filled our hearts to the brim. I can’t wait to see where life with “My Three Sons” will lead (no, I don’t remember the show, but I’m familiar with the reference).
Sometimes those we love need financial help. Life can throw us curveballs and having friends and family to support us is a wonderful thing. But there’s a big difference between picking up the tab at dinner and writing a check for thousands upon thousands of dollars.
So, if you choose to help someone out with your money, consider the following:
I read an article last week that states “24 percent of workers check work email during activities with family and friends.”1 I am guilty, as charged. It also states, “42 percent say [work] is the first thing they think about when they wake up.”1 Again, guilty.
New dads, old dads, granddads, dads-in-law, stepdads, serious dads, goofball dads, uncles that take on the roles of dads…There must be a million fatherly types out there, and without a doubt, there are at least that many reasons to honor them on Father’s Day.
I’ve got an awesome dad, both a teacher (literally) and a friend. I try to emulate him in as many ways as possible so that my boys will say the same of me in the years to come.
