Boss vs. Leader

The boss drives people; the leader coaches them. The boss depends on authority; the leader on good will. The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. The boss says ‘I’; the leader says ‘we.’ The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown. The boss says ‘go’; the leader says ‘let’s go!'”

-H. Gordon Selfridge, American-British retail magnate

Tyler’s Big Wheel

Today is my last day with Tyler for a few days so it may be a little while before you see another on him unless something earth shattering (at least in the parent world that is) happens.  We had lots of fun with some great weather over the last few days with my parents.  Yesterday Grandpa put together Tyler’s Big Wheel he got for Christmas a few years ago (but was too small to use) while he was taking a nap.  He came downstairs to find a new “big boy bike” and we had to try it out.

Keep Swinging

“My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.” – Hank Aaron

A Boy And His Dragon

My parents brought Tyler a dragon and he hasn’t let it leave his sight since he got it.  This afternoon when I got him up from his nap I have no idea where he got the beanie but he also decided to put that on for his nap which I thought was absolutely adorable.
