Photos, FaceTime, and Ice Cream – Steve’s Daddy Tips (6-24-20)
Steve got a little personal today with his Daddy Tips by talking about how he got caught doing something pretty gross on Father's Day. Oh, and apparently his daughter ate like a pound of ice cream in one day this week.
- Today’s first Daddy Tip is a fun little activity that you both might enjoy, looking at old pictures from when you were a kid. While cleaning out some stuff in storage this weekend, I came across photos of me and my friends and family from when I was a kid and Charlotte and I loved looking at them together. It’s fun to watch them try to pick you out of groups of people at different ages and it’s cool to watch their reaction to some of the sillier photos. Just make sure you don’t have any inappropriate photos in there because I definitely had a few risque pics from college I had to hide.
- The next Daddy Tip is to pay attention to the camera when you are FaceTiming with family. When we FaceTime with Charlotte’s grandparents, I’m usually flipping between the front and back camera as I’m trying to frantically keep Charlotte on camera as she runs around. Well, I learned this weekend that you need to be paying attention to which camera is on because I accidentally broadcast myself digging really deep into my nose for one of those hard to reach boogers. So, don’t be a Steve and show off your booger digging and pay attention to which camera is on.
- And the final Daddy Tip is to let your partner know about the snacks you give your toddler throughout the day so you don’t go overboard on the sugar. I say this because on Monday, Charlotte has ice cream four times. How did this happen, you ask? Well, I gave Charlotte a fudgesicle after lunch, but I didn’t realize that she had already had one before I got finished with work. Then, she was being really good later that night and she wanted another one, so I said sure. And after that 3rd fudgesicle, my wife had gotten home from work and while I was in the shower, she gave her another one. And just like that, Charlotte had 4 fudgesicles in one day.
And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke!
