Steps to be AWESOME

What can I say, my son Tyler is awesome. 

When you are a seven year old, that's the kind of word that gets thrown around A LOT. Everything is awesome; his latest lego creation, a picture he drew, part of a video game, even his latest bowel movement, it's all 100% completely AWESOME.  Now I always thought he was like me and just rolled out of bed that way, but apparently there are steps that need to be followed to be awesome.

The first three steps I can completely understand, in order to get your awesome day off on the right foot, you have to eat a healthy breakfast and get everything ready for school.  It totally makes sense to me.  I mean how can you be awesome when you are lethargic and lacking school supplies, I don't think you can be. 

And so it begins with Step 4. 


I am not exactly sure what to make of this, I always thought that I would make it until he was at least a teenager before he started to avoid me.  Why would he try to avoid me? Doesn't he know where he gets his awesomeness from?  I mean the apple doesn't fall from the tree right?  Come to think of it, his mom is pretty cool.

Tyler came up with this list while out at dinner the other night, and while this list is great, something MORE awesome happened that night.  Carter decided to copy his older brother.  He is still struggling with writing and counting, and writing letters on his own is not something he has been capable of.  On his own he copied Tyler's picture word for word. Well, maybe not every word and every letter exactly but enough that you got the idea.  I always knew it, but my little guy is AWESOME too!

Lets just hope he doesn't figure out how to write Step 4.  As for Step 5, that's a given.

  1. hhahahahahahahahhahahahahahha *classic* You should sign him up for speaking gigs. Lots of people could use an actual step-by-step guide on how to be more awesome like that!

  2. Not only did he write it, but he made it bold letters and underlined. My boy loves me.

  3. They say a kid with a plan is much more likely to succeed.

  4. LOL! Well, at least you are blocking his awesomeness.

  5. You sound like a great daddy, I enjoy reading your stuff.
