Father: A son’s first hero, daughter’s first love
The day started with gifts, coffee and breakfast (pancakes, eggs and bacon). Then watching some Guitar Center sessions with the kids (Blondie and Colbie Caillat).
Lunch and swimming with my in-laws, Mel’s mom and dad while the NASCAR race in Michigan is in rain delay.
Burgers, dogs and kiddie races at my parent’s house. Oh, and catching lightning bugs for the first time.
Every night when we tuck Bree into bed we tell her, “If you need anything just call us.” Recently she has taken to repeating that back to me as I’m leaving her room. Tonight, she said:
“Dad, if you need anything just call me and I’ll help you. If you and mommy find a huge spider in your room, just kill that all by yourself, don’t call me for that.”
