My Son of a Beach........The one who will save the World

Maybe he will just start with his own bathtub.

"C1 time to go take a bath"  That is what I told him the other night after dinner.

He went into the bathroom and I figured that would be it.  Minutes went by and I didn't hear the water running. ??????   "C1, whats the deal?  Get the water going"  I yelled from the kitchen, since T and I were still eating.   A few more minutes went by and still no sound of running water.

I am thinking to myself (out loud)  "What in the world!"  So I get up and walk into the bathroom to find a tall and skinny naked 7 year old just chillin, hanging in the tub, sitting there laid back, taking the toys out of the tub, slowly.......

OK, now in my mind (to myself in my head), I'm thinking what the fuck is this child doing?  Sitting in an empty tub, taking his time, cleaning the toys out...

I go back into the kitchen and sit at the table and with a blank look on my face I tell T, "He has no water in the tub and he is just sitting in the tub, taking toys out.  T's response, "Oh yeah, he has to have a clean tub before he takes a bath!" and more "That is why I let him take the last bath, the tub will be clean when he is finished"

ME - OK.  Guess it makes sense...............Minutes later......Running water.

It was funny, and I laughed cause it made me think back to the Disney trip when we were hanging on the beach at our resort.

C2 and C3 were playing in the sand an building things and C4 was kind of just walking around.  C1, what was he doing?

Look in his bucket
(pay attention)

See what he's doing

My sufer dude looking son C1,  was walking around the beach picking up trash.  He kept finding trash and picking it up, putting it in his bucket and then making the trip to the garbage.  He did this over and over.  Now don't get confused, he did play and have fun in the sand and sun, but all of a sudden he started working on PROJECT: Beach Cleanup.

While I seem to be joking and making fun and laughing at my family and what we do, I feel proud knowing that T and I are raising good kids that seem to be able to make good choices so far and do good things.  Having my 7 year old son pick up garbage on the beach is something that I would not even do. 

So from cleaning up the tub before he takes a bath to picking up trash on the beach, C1 you are a damn good kid, and I am proud to be your Daddy.

Thanks for the follow mate! Great blog! I almost never see a blog from a father's perspective these days.

And yes, Ryan Reynolds is pretty awesome.

I never doubted this one was this kind of kid...I can see it in his eyes....there's nothing but good emanating from him...& I don't even know him.
