Moments of joy

Smiles, laughs, craziness and hugs

My daughter brings out the most amazing part of me. I tend to think that she is a better introduction to me than I am for myself. When she smiles or calls for me out of a crowd, I know that I am held in the greatest regard.

I will do anything for her. Even when I am angry I temper it with love to let her know why I am angry. I want her to know that her health and safety are number one. I think she understands....

Yes, I agree to that, for I remember that your post about taking her sleding and the one big hill filled me with the feeling of pride that you had for being a dad, and it was then that I decided to be a regular in the audience of this, your domain.

I often tell people that I'm a dad and that's my number one job. Their mom only gets to see my Demiselings from 10am until 7pm on Saturdays and she acts like she's the proof reader for the Suppernanny scripts. She alienates me and them by her inability to see it as their lives and not hers. I just saw a newscast where they said that over 50% of children from seperated or divorced kids felt as though they didn't belong whichever parent they were with. Be mindful if this, for while she's young we get a little more margin for error; by the time they're teens, everything is going to be SO important! Did I mention I changed from being a well paid brick mason to being a low paid school bus driver and have begun to see kids in a whole new light?

You can shine your shoes and wear a suit
You can comb your hair and look quite cute
You can hide your face behind a smile
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside

Saddle: some people don't...

Vick: I couldn't agree with your more. Phoenix is lucky that her mom loves her just as much as I do. We are very good parents yet shitty lovers. The margin of error might not be as big as we think...

I would have to say that it is wonderful to have children and to have the opportunity to watch them grow and learn, well, nothing could replace that experience!

Being sure to explain yourself when your upset and to differentiate between being mad at her actions versus her, is extremely important with any child. I am sure that with someone like you as a father, one who boasts as much as you do (we looked over the blog) she is the luckiest little girl there could be.

tattoed: thank you for the compliment. dealing with issues is many a short-coming of everyone. I don't get angry at people, I get angry at their actions....
