funny the way it is

It’s weird to think about meeting D & K seven years ago, and then we fast forward to today, where I sat between them while watching their daughter, who is now my step-daughter, give a talk (in her class for gifted students) about why Pluto should still be considered a planet.

*head explosion*

The talk was fucking awesome btw. She’s such a smart girl. She’s going to do big things. They did a fantastic job on the parenting front. Congrats, you two. She’s amazing. ❤️

How was your day?

I had a mostly chill day. It was good. The highlights:

  • Reading. I’m really into my current pick.
  • Watching Frey try to teach Jack how to ride his bike without training wheels.
  • Listening to them play together upstairs. Right now they’re at these perfect ages where they have common interests and still do imaginative play. I know it won’t last forever, so I like listening in on their little play adventures. I love how much they have grown into their relationship as step siblings. It has been one of those unexpected delights in life. ❤️ ❤️
  • D and I snuck away for a quick beer at our local place.
  • The fire table is a delight.
  • Our family walk. One of my favorite things.
  • Motherfucking Ozark, man.
