Nothing quite as educational as vacation

  • Nothing quite as frightening as when your spouse says, "I'm in the mood to......spend money."
  • Nothing quite as pungent as a relatively new dad changing a diaper in a store's public rest room. It also lasts a lot longer than necessary. No, there isn't an app for that.
  • Nothing quite as endearing as seeing your teenager's attitude change back into little girl excitement over something like a pair of stuffed dinosaurs (or friend-o-saurs as they were dubbed).
  • Nothing quite as disappointing as seeing it return to usual at the end of vacation.
  • Nothing quite as disappointing as knowing it is back to work or school after a week away from the office.
  • Nothing quite as humbling as getting back at training after even a short time not structured.
  • Nothing quite as necessary as getting humbled to set the brain up for some real training.
  • Nothing quite as refreshing as when your family universally agrees that they had a good vacation (Yes, this could be whenever your family universally agrees on anything with children of a certain age).

So great that you had a good vacation! Ha, I laughed at the part where you mention your wife being in the mood to spend money. I get like that once in a blue moon. :) And changing diapers in public! uggh!
