I Love Being His Dad
A dad moment to share. We walked to McDonald's and between us, the happy meal toy was super lame but he liked it so awesome.
Five blocks into the walk home he tells me he lost his toy somewhere along the route. A new toy or a lesson would have done it here but he wanted his toy back. Darkness and "a needle in a haystack" were shaking hands at this point.
We traced a block worth of our steps and he said he found the toy in the snow. He was thrilled.
Before this young man came along into my life, this would have been a seriously dumb synopsis of events. Just saying. There is nothing like the smile of all of our kiddos. Enjoy the fiascos.
