Nothing like being a Daddy…

Posted: August 2, 2008 in Random

I may be preaching to the choir, but there is nothing like being a daddy.  For one, it teaches you a lot about yourself.  It shows you that you have an incredible capacity to love.  It causes you to be less selfish.  There are many more lessons, but one of the ones that always shakes me up is when you get so much joy out of watching your son enjoy something.

Tonight we enjoyed a dinner with the in laws, affectionately called Nanna and Pot (yes Pot, not Pop).  They came up for a conference and we are going to be hanging out this weekend.  Obviously, grand kids tug on their grandparent’s heartstrings too, so when Micah sat on a Plasma Car in a toy store at the Avenues…it was only a matter of time before it was Micah’s.

After Micah’s name was put on the back of the car he rode it around the Avenues to the jealous stares of 4 year old’s and the regular comments of “how cute” from everyone else.  For a daddy, there isn’t much more fun then watching your boy enjoy something that much.  He actually had to sit next to it in the car and kept his hand on it the whole way home.

Basically, I am a proud daddy and it’s one of the best experiences of my life so far.  Can’t wait till January when I get to do it all over again.
