Ducky: Why are you sad, Daddy?
Me: I didn’t say I was sad.
Ducky: I’m observant. You look sad.
Me: You look sad too.
Ducky: I’m both observant and empathetic.
Me: …
Ducky: What’s wrong, daddy?
Me: Nothing, Ducky. And everything. It’s hard to explain.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: If I thought everything was wrong and nothing was wrong and I couldn’t explain it I’d probably be sad too.
Me: …
Ducky: Sorry you’re sad, Daddy.
Me: Thanks. 
Ducky: And really sorry I can’t fix it.
Me: Not your job to fix it, Ducky.
Ducky: I know. But I’m still allowed to wish I could.
Me: Yeah. Thank you.
Ducky: …
Me: Sorry that I get this way.
Ducky: You’re not doing it on purpose. And it’s okay that you can’t fix it either.
Me: I know.
Ducky: But you’re still allowed to wish you could.
Me: Yeah. Really wish I could.
Ducky: …
Me: Thanks for staying close, Ducky. Even when I get like this.
Ducky: Of course. Just because I can’t fix it doesn’t mean I can’t try to help keep it from getting worse.
Me: Yeah. That’s what you do. And I may not always show it, but I appreciate it.
Ducky: So you be sad as long as you need to be. 
Me: …
Ducky: I’ll be here while you are. 
Me: And when I’m not sad anymore?
Ducky: I’ll be here then too. I love you, Daddy. All of you. Not just “happy” you. Or “feeds me” you. Or “pets me” you. Or “feeds me” you. All of you.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: You said “feeds me” twice.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I am fully capable of experiencing multiple emotions simultaneously and it is true that in addition to loving you I might also be a tad hungry.
Me: It is getting near that time. Let’s get your dinner.
Ducky: Thanks for still taking care of me even when you’re sad.
Me: Thanks for taking care of me, Duck. Even when I’m sad.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you Ducky.

Me: You feeling okay, Ducky?
Ducky: Sure. Just tired.
Me: No more than usual?
Ducky: No. Why?
Me: I just worry about you. Want to make sure you’re okay. Don’t want to assume.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Did something happen?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Do you remember me telling you about Daisy?
Ducky: The doggie that lives with Grandma and Grandpa?
Me: Yeah. Well, I just found out that she passed away.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That makes me sad.
Me: Me too.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Didn’t you tell me that Grandma and Grandpa saved Daisy?
Me: Yeah. Daisy was living with some people who weren’t treating her well. Hurting her. And when there was an opportunity to get her out of that situation, they did.
Ducky: Is that what all humans would do?
Me: No. Not all.
Ducky: Lucky for Daisy that your parents were around.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: And were in the market for a doggie!
Me: Ha. No. No, I don’t think they particularly wanted a doggie at all at that point.
Ducky: But they still did it?
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: How long ago was that?
Me: I really don’t remember. A lot of years.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Did they treat her better?
Me: They treated her wonderfully. They loved her very much.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m glad they found her. And gave her a lot of good years.
Me: Me too.
Ducky: A lot of doggies don’t ever get that.
Me: No. No they don’t.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky:  But it’s still okay that you’re sad.
Me: I know.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m glad you found me.
Me: I’m glad we found each other.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Walks keep me healthy.
Me: Yes they do.
Ducky: Want to go for a walk and you can tell me more about Daisy? And maybe we can talk about Foley too?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: That sounds like a very good idea. 
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you very much, Ducky.

Honeymoon is set!

7 night cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas with stops in St Thomas and St Maarten!

I think we all know why I’m looking forward to this honeymoon. Seven nights of …

* “I think I see seamen on the deck.”

* “Embarkation is delayed. See where the crew boards? See that crowd? Believe me, with a seaman backup like that the Captain must be distracted.”

* “We were invited to dine with the Captain but that means mixing seamen with our meal.”

Gizmo is one lucky girl, huh?! A lifetime of this!

GPOY-“FaceTiming With Your Dog” Edition

He recognized my voice and tried to figure out where I was in the house. Ducky has never really gotten his head around video screens. 

Still, it’s impressive that he could open the app and dial. 

Home tomorrow night, buddy!

Me: You’re on the bedspread, Ducky.
Ducky: I don’t know what that is.
Me: It’s the blanket that goes on top of the bed.
Ducky: Got it. Good to know.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Off please.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Off what?
Me: The bedspread.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Hey, I just learned what that word means!
Me: Yes you did. Off.
Ducky: It’s a blanket. Like the ones I lie on.
Me: Similar. But different.
Ducky: How so?
Me: You aren’t allowed to lie on the bedspread.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I just learned the definition of “bedspread” and I think you’ll find that is not clearly started in said definition.
Me: I don’t care. Off.
Ducky: How am I supposed to know the difference between blankets I can lie on and ones I can’t? 
Me: Well, you could listen to me when I tell you “off.”
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That seems arbitrary.
Me: Off!
Ducky: Why?
Me: I’m trying to make the bed. Off please.
Ducky: So this blanket or “bedspread” if you will, will end up on the bed?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Yes.
Ducky: But I’m not allowed up on the bed.
Me: No, you’re not.
Ducky: So why would I give up this blanket?
Me: Because I said so.
Ducky: Now that’s definitely arbitrary right there!
Me: Off.
Ducky: But the bedspread smells like you. And laying on it is like I’m laying with you.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Is that true or are you just saying it to get me to let you stay there?
Ducky: A little from column A, a little from column B.
Me: …
Ducky: If you let me keep laying on it the bedspread will start to smell like me.
Me: That’s less of a selling point that you’d think.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.

You don’t deserve the best of me if you don’t accept the rest of me.

Me: You look happy, Ducky!
Ducky: I am! Thanks for making it cooler in here!
Me: You’re welcome. But I didn’t really do it. Summer just ended. Finally.
Ducky: Well, thanks for not stopping summer from ending!
Me: I always appreciate your steadfast faith in my omnipotence. At least when good things happen.
Ducky: You look happy too!
Me: Yeah. I had a good week.
Ducky: That’s rare.
Me: Probably not as rare as I let myself believe. But this week really was good. And I’m going to let myself be happy about it.
Ducky: Good.
Me: But this is the best part of my week.
Ducky: Lying on the floor?
Me: With you. Yup.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Maybe your weeks really aren’t that great.
Me: No, Duck. I’ve just reached the point that I know what really makes me happy. I know what matters. And I forget sometime, and sometimes I let things that aren’t important to me upset me. But I’ve gotten better at letting myself enjoy the moments that matter.
Ducky: …
Me: Like lying on the floor with my best buddy.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Does rubbing my head and belly matter?
Me: It makes you happy. So it matters a lot.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
