Could be, it is a book and a painting (see below) but it is one of only two lines I can remember from the play in question.

I think I last saw my dad on my birthday which was in October. Shocking considering they only live 15km from me! I will see him on Friday though as I have to take my folks to the airport.


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

June 9th, 1989... I was five, and woke up early to say bye to him before he left for work. Little did I know that was the last time I would see him alive. I still remember when my mom got the phone call that he had been killed... My older sisters were both home from college, and I could not understand why they were all crying. The next thing I remember was our pastor's wife getting me out of the house, and going with her to get my youngest sister (1.5 years older than me) from school, and keeping us away from the house. I look back at it now, and think that it was one of the best things that anyone had ever done for me... There were over three thousand people at his funeral, he had a big impact on every one he met...

My wife and I are already planning on doing everything possible to have our brood WANT to see us continuously. We even discussed the fact that we would LOVE to have our grandchildren hang out with us often.

BTW, our oldest child is not even 7, but we like to think (far) ahead.

Last Saturday, and most weekends. The gramps have the kids for a few hours and entertain them (or vice versa) while mum and dad do other stuff around the house, shopping, diy, all the other mundane stuff best done without kids around. They live quite close by and love their weekly grandchildren fix.

If you parent them right, which I'm sure you will, your kids will want to see you. I like coming home from University every so often and seeing my parents, and don't mind a bit living with them in the summers, or in a few weeks seeing as I'm done University then. When I was younger my dad was a hard ass, so was my mother, but as I got older and showed some responsibility our relationships changed, they're somewhat like good friends and parents at the same time. If I'm bored with nothing to do I'll ask them if they want to go do something...

And I also like hanging out with my remaining grandfather, we go to baseball games once a week in the summer normally, with my dad (his son-in-law) and just have a good time, a couple of frosty cold ones and a ball game with family, a great afternoon. And my mom and I have a weekly game of golf in the summers, maybe not normal for someone my age, but I don't care.
