Daddy – Daughter Date Night

Posted in Conversations with Megan, Family, Personal Updates with tags , , on January 15, 2010 by Lee

Tonight Megan and I went on a “date.” Some one on one time between daughter and father.

It was a great night. We enjoyed a great meal @ our favorite restaurant in the world – “Chilis”. Finished it off with a root-beer float at A&W. In between, we sandwiched discussions about school, test, friends, Abraham’s example of obedience, comments about me veering off my diet a bit (it was only a tiny bit) and why God is not selfish for demanding our worship (her question).

All in all a great night with a great 10 year old.

Father, for the sake of your glory and for the sake of her sanctification, help me to be all I am supposed to be.


Conversations with the M & Ms

Setting: Family sitting at the dinner table enjoying some Chicken Empanadas.

Mom: Micah, this is a type of food you can eat with your hands.

Micah: (in his best Simon/British accent) Mother, I am not a savage – I am a gentleman!

(This was just after he pulled his shirt up and starting rubbing his belly at the dinner table)

Setting: Mom, Dad & Megan browsing through JC Penny’s

Megan: Mom, I am going to get a shirt that says, “Some one needs to spend Daddy’s money!” (She throws a coy smile at mom, along with some attitude, and adds) And its not going to be you!

I wonder who she is implying will spend my money.

More from the mouths of M & M

Here are a few more insights from Micah and Megan. I was able to laugh at these after the shock wore off.

Megan and Dad sitting at the table a few weeks before her 9th Birthday.

Dad: Well, Megan you are soon to be nine years old. What do you think about that?

Megan: Yes, Dad, I am becoming a mature woman.

9 years and mature woman are not equal to me. HELP!

Dad & the M & Ms returning home from swimming at the local high school

Micah: Dad, I say this in love – Your getting old. You will be dead soon!

Pray son gets to see Christmas!

Megan and Micah are both pretty expressive through art. Here is a small collection of Megan’s drawings. See if you can guess who these pieces are depicting:

Well if you guessed Megan herself – that would be wrong. These are an artist impression of her mother Rhonda. Can you see the likeness?

Conversations with Micah

Here is another conversation we had with our kids today at the dinner table.

Setting: Eating fish and discussing rather or not we (Rhonda and I) are still “hip”:

Rhonda: HEY – I USED TO BE COOL!! (Notice the key words “used to be”).

Micah: It’s not that your old – its just you guys are a little too adult to be fun.
