店长推荐系列 _过个暑假,一言难尽

过个暑假,一言难尽

从前,我的暑假很慢。

我喜欢把板凳挪到客厅中央,在对着窗户的地方写暑假作业,坐在那里一抬头就能看到我家的葡萄架。偶尔正瞅见有小孩爬到架子上,我便飞快地走到窗户那里大吼一声“谁啊”,看见那孩子落荒而逃我总会得意地一笑再笑。

那个时候,夏日的知了叫得欢畅。我把软胶管的一头套在水笼头上,打开,水哗啦哗啦地涌出来,我拿起另一头,用大拇指堵住一部分管口,让水流滋出一片水花来,只为在那水花之上能看见彩虹的模样。

夏日漫长的时光是冰镇绿豆汤和黑白动画片,在不太热的时候,我会拎上冰桶,拿上爸妈单位发的冰棍票走去冰棍厂换回一桶冰凉来。那硬邦邦的冰棍儿,咬上一口,真正透心凉。

过个暑假,一言难尽

那是我的暑假,全留在记忆里,因为时间距离就全是美好的。眼下又陪着孩子们过暑假,唉,却是一言难尽了。

早在暑假前,学校门口每天都能收到一大摞宣传单,书法绘画拉丁舞、游泳击剑跆拳道。

鸡汤里说:真正优秀的孩子,从来都不会随随便便过暑假。

拿着这些花花绿绿的小纸片,我开始了不擅长的心算,到底要花多少钱才能算是不随便?算了,就把这些小纸片统统扔进垃圾回收箱里吧。

进电梯,遇上有妈妈问我觉得游泳培训哪家强?当然孩子爸爸他最强,带到泳池扑腾几次不就会了么?我脱口而出,可是对方妈妈一脸犹疑。那可不一样,一开始动作就不标准,将来纠正可麻烦,我还是赶紧加钱给娃换个一对一的班。

前两天,有妈妈给我发来现场视频,是她女儿的舞蹈私课。每次地铁来回三小时,平均一分钟课费5.55元,12秒的视频我反复看了三遍竟然都有肉疼的感觉。我清了清嗓子,回复到:还是值得的。

自愧不如。要论培养孩子的用心,身边的父母都是霸气侧漏的。

过个暑假,一言难尽

早上送哥哥上课,我带着弟弟在教室外陪读。编程课结束了,有孩子背着硕大的吉它匆忙离开;我看见穿着拉丁舞服的孩子赶到画室上课,还看见穿着跆拳道服的孩子拿着鼓槌动次打次动次打次啪。

所有的孩子都很忙,暑假不是假。

在教室外跟别人家的妈妈聊天。绘画是他的爱好,他想坚持我们就支持;练字是必须的,一手好字能提高印象分;作文肯定要的,那是语文考试分值最多的一部分;体能也必须考虑,要加强自我保护;编程课也想去试下,不知道现在才开始会不会有点晚噢……

所有的爸妈都很用力,暑假绝不假。

看看,暑假就是一场家庭经济实力的大比拼,上半年赚进家里的钞票一次性就能消失在暑假里。

过个暑假,一言难尽

瑟瑟发抖,不仅仅是因为兴趣爱好而消耗的那些钞票,而是暑假根本就自带持续碎钞属性;心生害怕,不光是因为暑假要钱,而是暑假根本是一边要钱还一边要命。

最初我安抚自己就把暑假当周末,反正周末孩子们也没给我好过,上蹿下跳、一地鸡毛,况且也不是第一次过暑假,就别把它妖魔化。

可是两周熬过去,真是打脸打得要命。

周末完全就不是暑假的量级,周末一天休闲一天培训转天就又可以送到学校去,就好像还没经过阵痛孩子就已呱呱落地、还在蜜月期怎么都是相看两欢喜。

可是暑假,朝朝暮暮相对、分分秒秒崩溃。

哥哥的语言能力前所未有的进步,成语方言俏皮话句句都问为什么,飞鸟走兽海生物只只都想弄清楚,常常是我靠投机取巧与他对答、暗暗地我总为自己可怜的知识内存一声长叹。

去年还安安静静的弟弟个子长高了、饭量增大了、也会和哥哥打闹了、遇到不如意都能假哭了。人人都说两孩子相互为伴真好,殊不知两孩子都放假有多闹。

两孩在家,玩具扔得劈里啪啦,零食碎渣散得稀里哗啦;两孩带出门去,路途之中憔悴狼狈,花钱花得悄无声息如流水。

没有距离的亲子关系怎么经得起暑假的摧残。

过个暑假,一言难尽

站在夜风微凉的阳台里,我单手撑着拖把仔细打量着客厅,那是白日里从未有过的模样,齐整干净、仿若有光,只是今天的消毒水搁多了,但愿十二点的夜风能快点把它吹散。

转身抬头、仰望看不到星星的夜空,我许下迫切的心愿:九月,快点来!

Our History

Between 1971 and 1991, Dan Emmett and partners formed three real estate companies, which collaboratively engaged in the acquisition, development, redevelopment, operation and management of high-quality real estate assets within supply-constrained markets in Los Angeles County. While the early focus was on multifamily properties, the Company's investment focus evolved to include high-quality office properties and complementary retail space in California and Honolulu, Hawaii. Since 1993, Douglas Emmett has acquired a substantial majority of its portfolio through nine institutional funds.

Today, Douglas Emmett, through our interest in our Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries, consolidated JVs and unconsolidated Fundsowns and operates approximately 18.4million square feet of Class A office space and 4,043 luxury apartment units in nine highly desirable submarkets in Los Angeles County, six of which are located in Los Angeles' Westside - Brentwood, Century City, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, the Olympic Corridor, and Westwood - and three submarkets in the San Fernando Valley - Sherman Oaks/Encino, Warner Center/Woodland Hills, and Burbank. The Company's Honolulu office portfolio is located in the downtown central business district with multifamily properties in nearby suburban communities.

The Company utilizes the same focused business strategy that was implemented by its founding principals - managing, developing, redeveloping and acquiring multifamily and commercial real estate in high barrier-to-entry submarkets that exhibit strong economic characteristics such as population and job growth, as well as inherent supply constraints, such as limited developable land due to natural and political barriers. The Company strives to capitalize on the experience of its seasoned management team to create continued value.

The Company is headquartered in Santa Monica, California.
