So this week at kids sport (haha i lied) it was uncomfortable to watch two other dads go through ego crises of their own. Maybe it's something every person must experience when they step up to the plate and out of their comfort zone. I'll try to help them out, hopefully they don't relapse to whatever their drug is over the next few weeks. Bought my wife the blu-ray of Cats for Mother's Day. My kids watched it very intently and now they are obsessed with it. It's nice when you find something that resonates with them. One of my kids attended a birthday party this weekend and the home she visited was very fancy, in a nice part of town- probably the nicest house she has ever seen. Afterwards we got lots of questions from both kids about why they couldn't live in a house like that. We tried to explain, not all people are born with the same wealth, people make different choices about how they spend their time etc, but it got to the point where it felt like i was just making excuses and i shut up. I don't usually care about keeping up with the Jones but when your kids ask you a bunch of questions about their living conditions its hard to ignore. Australia had an election on Saturday and returned our conservative government. I worry a lot about climate change and so this was a blow, because our conservative party does not intend to do anything about it. Our seat was one of the only to come close to kicking out their incumbent MP, so at least I can still feel good about my neighbours.
