And this is something that I added a few episodes ago, compliments of Mr. K P more on Twitter. I follow him on Twitter because every day, several times a day, he will post things and jokes that make people laugh. And you know, I appreciate that because we're just too serious sometimes. So this is compliments of KP , more KP. We're sending some, a light love your way. I know you're going to be off for awhile on Twitter as you , you know , go through some, some things. So we are sending you a lot of love and light and healing and hope to have you back on Twitter with your jokes real soon. All right, here we go, boss, do you think you can come in on Saturday? I know you enjoy your weekends, but I need you hear me. Sure. No problem, but I'll probably be a little late though. As public transportation is slow on the weekend. Boss, what time will you get here? Me Monday to turn a frown upside with a smile. All right, let's get to our stories. Our first creative comes from you guessed it, Jersey Joe in New Jersey who provided the words for last week to all my parents. Remember to do your best because your kids might be in a position to kick you out of your nest. Discipline is necessary when raising a child, but remember they will only be small for a little while. So give them some extra candy. Once in a blue moon, it might help them make sound decisions when they are evaluating your room. Spare the rod spoil the child. I haven't heard like that in quite a while. Nest a kid and let him fly away. If they come back, you, the parent are okay to stay. Thank you, Jersey , Joe . I appreciate you. You know that and thank you for the words as well from last week, the next contributor is Bolina in Texas. Kick him out right now. Yell, Beatriz , bonnet . I can't take it no more. It's time. It's been time for him to get out of the nest. No way a grown man should still be living home with his family. At 18 years old Morello looked perplex. What was Beatriz talking about? 18 years old is barely considered grown in the U S Beatrice stare at Morello down locking eyes and refusing to blink, but he wasn't moved by beaches, bullet eyes stare. He was accustomed to it since they came together as a couple 30 years ago, the grown man Beatrice wanted to expel was her younger cousin who she had taken on when his parents snuck away and moved to Portugal to never return. Sure they sent money every month, but still it was too much to handle. The boy now turned 18 and now considered a man. Her heart wasn't always this heart , but over the years, she began feeling overwhelmed with all the duties of life in the United States. And now all she wanted was to be free of one more responsibility. Well thank you. Belina in Texas for taking the time to sit down and draft up the story and send it in for me to share on deck. We have a contributor from way back in the day from day one who has taken a little break, looks like coach Sherry work-life development coach in Charlotte, North Carolina is back in the mix. Here we go. I always knew when they were young, that this day would come with three and a half years. Age difference between my three kids every day was a handful. My husband and I enjoyed every moment, not taking them for granted, but as they grew, we never discussed this moment. When it was time to get out of the nets. Back in my day, people had to get kicked out for being too dependent and comfortable. I'm proud to say so far, the oldest is flying out of the nest on his own without being pushed, although they will all eventually go. They always know they will always be welcome to recharge and reboot in this nest. Oh wow. That's awesome. And for those of you who have children, I think that should be the approach as well. I liked that part about always be welcomed to recharge and reboot in this nest . Thank you, coach Sherry . Well, that is all of our contributors for this week. And thank you all for sneaking away again from your daily routine, taking five minutes to participate in this fun off the cuff creative exercise and allow me to share with the listeners I'm here every Wednesday at 7:00 PM Eastern standard time.
