Father’s Day (Belated)

June 23rd, 2009

Ten of the many things I love about being a father.
  1. Hearing Ellie laugh.
  2. Watching Ellie’s face as she figures something out (man, is she proud!).
  3. Being the comfort Ellie needs when she is sad.
  4. The airplane game.
  5. Raspberries.
  6. Reading to Ellie (Lord of the Rings is coming soon).
  7. Sleeping with Ellie curled up next to me.
  8. When carrying Ellie in her back-pack and she hits my shoulder as if to say, ‘Mush Daddy, Mush.’
  9. Hugs and kisses.
  10. Having the most amazing woman as Ellie’s Mom.
