Midnight Ice Cream and Comic Relief

I was talking with a coach a while back about family life during the season ... He said in the past he unfortunately pretty much forgot about his wife and kids once 2-a-days started but last season he tried something. He decided that he would do something special for his wife on Tuesday, his daughter on Wednesday and son on Thursday.

They loved it. His wife liked red wine - so "Wine with Wife on Tuesdays". His daughter - ice cream. Many times he would get home insanely late on Wednesdays ... so he would wake her up and they would have "Midnight Ice Cream". His son was going through a checkers fad .... "Checkers with Chad.

It was the best season of his life. His kids would go to bed a little earlier on "their" night knowing that Dad would come and wake them up to spend time with them. He was tired but he wouldn't trade it for the world now.

For some comic relief, here is a rap for all Dads - "Dad Life". Thanks, Bob Dwyer!
