Do you see the grin? He smiled.
It's moments like this where we stare at the camera and the screen showing our faces when it dawn's on me.... I'm the Dad.
I used to be jealous and envious of other dad's, especially when I'd see pictures and video's of their kids - some pitching no hitter's in their little league games.
Anger would rise out of me because of all the dreams and vision I had of being a father would be lost.... for awhile...
Where would I get that opportunity with my son? Why can't I have the same opportunities as other Dad's?
When will we go camping? What about when he get's friends... when will I have the opportunity to be the cool dad... the goofy dad... the annoying dad?
But I see moments more often now.... that moment of connection between a father and a son, then I realize that being a dad is not about little league...
... it's not about going camping...
... it's not about having those selfish moments to be goofy or annoying.
It's about just being there for him. Having fun in the moment when you can.
The picture taken was while we were waiting in the drive through. I pulled out my phone and set the camera to view both of us.
We watched the screen and I said, "Smile"
That's all that matters in the end.
Happy Father's Day.
