I’ve spent too much time bragging about myself recently so now it’s time to brag about one of my kids. This week, Drew learned that he got an “Award of Excellence” in the state-wide Texas PTA Reflections competition in the musical composition category. This is, apparently, equivalent to second place which, given that this was the very first song he’s ever written, strikes me as a pretty significant result. Way to go, Drew!
He wrote and composed his song, “Everybody’s Different”, then performed it complete with ukulele accompaniment. The song is great but I bet the judges were swayed by the Elvis-style flourish at the very end 🙂
During the 12 years I have been married, various guys new to the marriage thing have asked me for advice on how to keep the relationship on track. Usually, my answer involves two things, firstly that the answer “Yes Dear” should be used early and often and secondly that a husband’s job in a marriage is all about enhancing his partner’s happiness. I rather hope that the second of these points works the other way too and, from my experience, that’s pretty true.
Earlier this week, Nikki found a video that I should also share with other husbands out there. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.
