to teach Chase as he grows up. I’ve gotten ideas from Pinterest, family members,
friends, and my own thoughts. I’ve FINALLY finished the primary list. I know it
will grow over time, but I’ve got a good jumping point. Later this week, I’ll be
posting on the Bucket List I’ve started for Chase and I.
But here is my “Teaching Chase” List as of now.
•The kitchen? Not just for girls. Learn to use a stove and an oven.
•If a girl tries to change you she doesn’t really love you no matter how much you want
•Shower daily, keep your nails trim and use deodorant.
•A dutch oven is never funny. EVER.
•It is NEVER acceptable to break up with a girl over the phone.
•Understand how to use basic tools.
•The job of a stay-at-home mom is equally as hard as yours.
•Table manners. Use them.
•NEVER use your fists to solve ANY dispute. One wrong punch could take
a life and it could be yours.
•Condoms will save your life.
•Never use the word gay in a derogatory manner. It’s ignorant.
•Sexting is a federal offense.
•Real girls do not look like Victoria’s Secret models
•Your dreams are greater than your fears.
•Feelings are not a taboo subject. You are not less of a man because you
cry, laugh, get silly, or show affection.
•No man is an island. You can always ask for help.
•Love with all of your heart.
•Life’s road has a few bumps…but also plenty of beautiful views
•You are as special as I say you are.
•You can always come home.
•You will never be too big or too old to sit in my lap.
•You will never waste time while reading. Read often.
•You are not a girl’s sugar daddy. Find a girl who has her life together before
dating. You’ll save a lot of time, money, and heart-ache
•Passion isn’t a contorted exercise on a marble staircase, it’s doing the dishes
together and lying with your feet touching in bed at the end of a long day.
•Marriage is an act of courage, commitment and sacrifice. It’s also the most fun
you’ll ever have with your best friend.
•Being popular isn’t everything. Especially in high school.
•Treat every girl as if they were your mom. With respect and dignity.
•A firm handshake will go a long way in any situation.
•Nothing you say or do will make me love you anymore or any less.
•I will ALWAYS be proud to call you my son.
•Good grammar is sexy.
So there it is. As it grows and changes, I’ll update it, but like I said. I
think it’s at the very least a good place to start.
