My Apologies for the Delay...

Hi Max!

We had another terrific day today! We played in the morning before you went to school and then I got to pick you up after school. I asked where you wanted to eat and you said, "Buffalo." I knew that meant Buffalo Wild Wings and you don't go there for the food, you go there for the games. What a great concept for a restaurant! Make the experience great for kids and the parents will follow. If they just did free kids meals Wednesday's or something... we'd go every week! =0) 

Sorry for the delay (can you believe it has been over 60 days since my last post?). It is quite powerful getting to actually talk WITH you instead of just write to you. You are so fun to be around! 

I just read this article and it made me sad --> http://www.danoah.com/2010/09/you-just-broke-your-child.html/2/

I am so glad we hang out, play baseball or soccer, play "get me" which is your favorite game in which I chase you around the house and tackle and hug you. So blessed to have the opportunity to sepnd a lot of time with you and help raise you. You hate to be disciplined, but please know it is for your own good. You will think us some day for that. You got told no tonight when you wanted to play in the water instead of going to bed - when you are tired, you get cranky (but you are getting better - it's great to watch you learn and mature!). But we stood our guns and guess what? In two minutes you were fine. 

Remind me to tell you how proud of you I am. I promise to write sooner next time. 

Love you. 


Max's Dad (Michael)

P.S. You're awesome.
