After a very busy and stressful day (still going), I can honestly say I'm in favor of another eLearning day really soon!!! 😂 The hamster wheel is fixed at 9,000 mph today! I'm gonna need things to sloooooow down juuuuust a bit. 🏃🏃🏃
I am tired.
As a newborn, I was on high alert. I would jolt out of bed at all hours of the night to feed you, calm you, check on you. I slept in the glider to comfort you when you couldn't comfort yourself. I lost track of time. I sometimes lost track of days. I was tired, so tired, but you needed me around. *
As a toddler, you have become my alarm clock. Sleeping in on the weekends has become a thing of the past. I wake up to you jumping on the bed. I have slept on the floor when you have had a bad dream, rocked you back to sleep during storms, and brought you into our bed when you are sick. Early mornings have become playtime. I am tired, so tired, but you want me there. *
As you get a little older, your schedule will become mine. I will spend my evenings driving you to practices, friend's houses and helping you with homework. I will spend my weekends in a gym, on a field, in an auditorium, at birthday parties, grabbing lunches and snacks and running around from one location to the next. I will be tired, so tired, but you will require my help. *
As you grow into a teenager, you will keep me up at night. I will worry about you when you are out with your friends. I will worry about you when you learn to drive. I will worry about you experiencing heartbreak, rejection and peer pressure and wonder if I have equipped you well enough to handle these situations. I will be tired, so tired, but you will be my main concern. *
As you become an adult, you will be on my mind. I will wonder if you are studying at college, I will wonder if you have a love interest or if you have figured out what you want to do with your career. I will wonder where you will end up, who you will end up with and hope that you want to come home. I will be tired, so tired, but so eager to see where life is taking you. *
As you start a family of your own, you will be tired. You will understand the exhaustion and I will be there when you need me. I will drop off a dinner, take the kids for a night, and have an open door whenever you need me. You will feel tired, so SO tired, but if you are anything like me, you would do it all over again in a heartbeat. *

I struggle to make a decent living. I struggle to provide scraps on the table. I struggle to maintain everything I work and stand for. Despite all that I am happy where I am at because when the day comes where I can stand at the top, I will forever and always remember where I came from when I see those struggling behind me. My hand will be stretched out to them.
A nondisclosure agreement as well! The game has changed so much so you should be scared to bump into another person without legal representation. So to cover everyone involved in this transaction called sex, remove the stuff that makes people make bad choices. Alcohol, drugs, the need for rent money and everything else that motivates people to make bad decisions. If you were honest with yourself, how many Oak Tree (insert any club you frequented) hook ups were alcohol induced? Look back and remove the alcohol and those nights would greatly decrease. Fellas, remember ever waking up and the only way you knew something had happened was that you were naked with socks on a condom stuck to your leg? Was that love or an alcohol/drug induced friction session that you can't remember. Or waking up looking at the back of a head you can't remember. And you say that lil prayer, "Lord please don't let her be ugly". These are the conversations we need to have for real with our kids. Dave!!! Think back before you got that title and all. You were probably the same or worse! #toomanymcsnotenoughmics ****Drops Mic and walks offstage!!!**** #dirtydave1906ism#thisisamovement#knowledgeispower#thestruggleisreal#whodoyoubelieve
