Getting In The Holiday Spirit | Giving Back & Family Time

December 5, 2019 33 By William Hollis


I’m trying to do I tell it for who
percent that for the wind contact the shelter we just thought it would be a
lot better and a lot more fitting on Christmas Eve to show some compassion today’s Christmas Eve we’re not
celebrating Christmas well Jake seems to think that Santa Claus is coming tonight
and he said that we have to put out cookies and milk
so Jake’s okay but we are on a way to pick up some stuff from the office we
have Joe Fresh who is a floating company that we collaborated with before to
collaborating with the general they’re great at a partner we work with and they
were generous so so generous when we reached out to them and told them that
we wanted a little bit of giving back thing where
we wanted to stop by like a shelter and just drop off clothes and gloves and
coats jackets whatever they could provide us with it’s getting really cold
in Canada now so you know trying to do a little something
nice for people and that’s what we’re going to do now we contacted a shelter
we found out where they are the fact they’re open today we just thought it
would be a lot better and a lot more fitting on Christmas Eve to show some
compassion and adjustable of for you know people who aren’t as fortunate as
us and before we left we talked to can been about it they said no where are you
guys going and we explained it to them so that was really good yeah it’s
awesome Jill fresh was great the camera changed
its colors to paint because it knows that I like pink anyways not much
happened today it was a pretty chill day right now Jake and Ben are with my mom
at her friend’s Christmas Eve dinner max is sleeping so I get a little bit time
to rest last night was a very active max wanted to party until like 2:00 a.m. so
that was fun we dropped off the clothing at the
shelter they told us a little bit about the project one of my resolutions for
2018 was to get more involved with charity and different organizations and
causes I feel like we did quite a bit this year a lot of donations and stuff
that we did with Gary personally and then you know just getting kind of
Valyria Inc involved with a lot of things sponsoring different events doing
like donations or taking stuff that I’m getting from PR boxes that we actually
now do on a regular basis so whenever after every couple of months I’ll go and
check like all the things that we received that I’m really grateful for
from different brands things that are not used and stuff we would package them
and just give it to different shelters it’s amazing because I actually made an
Instagram story the first time that I started with donations and I got a big
list of a lot of places around the city so we wrote them all down and now every
time we have like clothes or makeup or hygiene products or anything like that
we just like randomly choose a charity or shelter organization and just come
and drop off those things I feel very grateful for being able to do that I am
really excited to keep doing that in the New Year this
definitely be another resolution for me before 2019
I would love to get more into mentoring like young girls and young women there
will be something really awesome to do so slowly but surely Carrie went to see
Creed 2 which is a boxing movie he gave me homework to watch Rocky one but
instead I’m watching I don’t even know what I’m watching because I don’t think
I’m watching anything I just turned something on and I’m looking into space
because I’m so tired my brain is not working I’m gonna go do a mask and keep
watching God knows what and wait for max to wake up to keep our party going Merry
Christmas Eves okay what are you doing right now I’m
trying to do like a carrot for who for Santa and the we for the real news

it on the table we should kill it for what the reindeers can cut it themselves

I’ve played in the basement for a little bit but today everything is closed
no one’s here we’re just trying to get through the day
yeah what do you think Maxie hmm watch yourself buddy
I feel like today because there was no work or like nothing to do it was just
all about feeding burping diapering putting to sleep trying to catch up with
jaqen been running for like little breaks throughout the day usually the
mom breaks that a lot of people like to take is when you say go to the bathroom
and then you take your phone and you sit there for like if you’re lucky fifteen
minutes alone but that’s if you’re really lucky otherwise it’s like five
minutes at least where no one’s there with you so it’s nice Gary went to get
Chinese food it’s the Jewish style of celebrating Christmas almost there baby
almost there almost done today I wish it was more
a Pinterest mom that like would come up with all these crafts and stuff for the
kids to do but I’m not so I’m just gonna just put music for them and they dance
let’s say thank God they like that okay the houses are my stuff to clean up a
new ritual what the celery juice I can’t say it’s one of my favorite things to do
but it’s not so bad mom what are you doing you just told you
something to raise you here or send you off to Europe well what do you say hey
what do you say then yeah we Jerry Kelly you stop that table so I just wanted to
update everybody because I decided to surprise the kids and get tickets to the
School of Rock the musical and I thought it would be for kids but it was a major
fail did you like the show no why because because it was so loud it was
too loud yeah and you don’t like rock and roll no
oh well well at least I tried I music is a natural channel no I think
you were more into like hip-hop and R&B there was a guy in the front of us that
had enough of the kicking the chair and he pissed off papa
anyways it was fun I understand what they asked us to leave
what’s your chill good night today’s Thursday finally the kids run back to
school I feel bad for the parents that the kids have the whole week off I think
there’s some schools like that that just take the whole like holiday bridge those
days whatever it is oh my god oh my god having all three kids at home at the
same time is manageable for a few hours but not for two days in a row I tried to
be a superhero yesterday and decided to spend a fortune on tickets to go see
School of Rock which is a musical and the musical was great my kids were kind
of unbearable but it was kind of my mistake
thinking that they’ll kind of push through because I’m trying to like when
you’re a parent you’re just trying to fill up things to do until they’re at
that time otherwise time to stand still so I got Gary and everyone and Gary
loves musicals loves and Jake was just like way too hyper to sit down and Ben
was just like is it done yet is it done yet
so we had to leave after the first half but at least we tried
you win some you lose some at this when we got home they just like passed out
there was so sleepy first they were crazy they were running around and
beating each other and then they just crashed so yes today is just Max’s home
and he is a good one so I’m just gonna try to push through the days until our
vacation we’re living to Mexico as a family soon so I’m really excited for
that I have a whole lot of things to do actually have Christmas gifts that I was
supposed to ship out that I didn’t know when you’re just like there’s nothing
left I just need to go on vacation and recharge I don’t want to talk to people
I don’t want to do anything I’m just like so that’s the state I’m in but I’m
excited for the new year I really have to sit down and finish my kind of 2019
plan game plan it’s a must for me before every year Gary’s on his way dropped off
the kids at Sadek and he’s on his way to pick me up we’re gonna have some
breakfast we didn’t really manage to have like any time just him and I
because we were just like trying to keep everyone doing stuff I have to say three
kids is like it’s hitting me now it’s aggressive you can definitely feel that
outnumbered situation and even having a nanny it’s still like she’s obviously
and as authority as mom and dad are so it’s it’s getting crazy up in here
trying to make it an order I have such a mess in my house it’s like a shipping
deck I created little packages little love packages to my girlfriend’s in
Israel that I’m gonna send out and to a few other people who went downstairs
went to all the things that I had to sell and I just literally gave it off to
Norwich that you can I he was herself or sent to her family in the Philippines
her basement is craziness this is insanity no you went for a little
shopping spree sandoval area this is by the way a pile of toys that we get as
gifts that i never show my kids because they literally don’t care about them
they will just open the package and just like throw it away and go run and play
something else so I don’t even bother this is the pile of toys that whenever
we’ll have kids over I’ll just give them some toys or there’s birthdays were just
like we gift or give it to other kids like different charities and stuff
whatever it is just to clean this whole thing up because Jake and Ben don’t care
they don’t care about these toys you’re the best nor deserve everything so I
really wanted to create a giveaway from my audience I just need help with that
so Kimmy says that she’s the queen of like she loves doing these kind of
things so I’m waiting on Kimmy to have like a day where she can come over and
we can just attack all of that I would love to create a little like valaria
packages Oh max to some of my followers and just like just like a little pushy
Asian thing so I’m gonna do that that’s my goal but that would probably happen
in January already because I can’t keep up with all this stuff that I need to do
okay 12:15 to get ready because I promised
Dennis to go with him clothes shopping he’s been trying to book me for that for
like literally six months so I have to do that I dress like a military sergeant
for my shopping spree with Dennis because I need to bring some order into
the way he shops and styles so intimidating hot hot then it’s like to
walk around and like what did I just do haha Dennis likes to walk around on them
just like dance and touch clothes and sing and I’m just like dude gotta get in
take and leave so that’s what I’m trying to do today I want to bring a problem to
your attention are you ready sure so Benjamin found you
know the song citrulline said you know that American version and it’s called
broke-ass millionaire you know how Benjamin has his photographic memory and
he like writes everything down so now every where it says broke-ass
millionaire all over a house when he goes to other people’s homes he writes
it when he goes to school he writes it and I’m not sure how to explain to him
that you shouldn’t do that why should he do it because I don’t want
the teachers calling me be like um your son is writing broadcast millionaire on
all the textbooks which part of it offends you first of all it’s just like
not a good look for us that our son writes broke-ass millionaire everywhere
why not because that’s not something that a
four-year-old needs to do he writes all kinds of stuff this is one of the things
that he writes I know but he writes it constantly right now the other stuff
don’t bother me he writes thank you next year I’d sold a
happy yeah so the next song that he likes he’ll start writing that I don’t
think this problem of yours requires a solution so you’re saying I tried to
explain them that it’s not a good like phrase oh no because then you shouldn’t
have played them song in the first place it wasn’t like it wasn’t my fault he
found it on iTunes so let’s let’s get the problem where it began was just not
doing access to iTunes anymore but then he finds really cool stuff sometimes
okay so then if he finds really cool stuff sometimes just be cool the fact
that it’s gonna say broadcast millionaire mony the thing is is that
you better link to the song because people will believe is that there’s a
song called protest oh I will link to this one and now I have to explain like
a teen elder came and I’m like a teen hell cuz she’s reading everything he
writes on the newspaper he’s like look look
and she writes like broke ass no and then she looks at me and I’m like it’s a
song so you don’t think it’s serious I don’t think it’s a problem I think right
now you’re just making something out of nothing
right right it’s not like broke-ass millionaire it is he’s not making
pictures with like people being beheaded he’s just hiding oh my god remember that
scene in Superbad when the kid was like I was just talking the other day to his
teacher she was saying how I should test him for gifted kids and now he writes he’s training stuff in Russia too so he
knows his stuff are you excited for her they’re excited I just put up a blast
that has like it’s called the plastic lip gloss
all kinds of weird stuff in it and that weight lips are look buzzing and I feel
like they’re growing that’s nice of you so are you are you my
lips look they look bigger there already right okay going to the gym I feel like
I haven’t really been moving my body this week has been a little if he also
food wise I’ve been going out a lot for dinners and stuff and I don’t really
restrict myself much when I go out to dinners and also I feel like we’ve been
going out to dinners with like people that are pregnant and stuff which you
know it’s danger zone so I need to get my act together and now I’m gonna go and
sweat and show my body I love it even though I’ve been eating fried food
probably every single day this week
