They look at myself and others funny when I get on their case about it
I am a very proud parent, and have an apartment where each member of the family feels free to be exactly who they feel they are. It’s a fact that most of us have to hide a bit of our truest personality in order to conform to society. I don’t care for that fact but, there is a true reality to it. I would love to slide in to my task in just my flip flops, shorts, and 90’s concert t-shirts but, I’m forced to conform. Well, I wanted to raise my children in an apartment that is not only perfectly moderated, HVAC controlled, orderly and safe but also tolerant. My children have undoubtedly embraced the environment and the people I was with and I have a lot of fun. However, I still find that I have to use the dad voice every now and again. It goes with the job. You have children, there are certain times when you have to be the heavy. Recently, this has meant getting a bit tougher on the value of money. Neither of my children have held a real job yet and that is fine. They should get to be youngsters a bit longer. However, they will need to show a bit more respect for what things they have. The HVAC use and abuse it a prime example. One of my youngsters will come in from outside and leave a slider open when it’s a hundred degrees outside. The HVAC conditioned air is just blasting out the door. They look at myself and others funny when I get on their case about it. So, I am going to have to get a bit more harsh it appears.
