Tomorrow morning is Daddy Day with my youngest son… and in case your wondering, I’m still married!
Most of the time when I tell people I have Daddy Day they think I am a divorced father and that I am referring to my court-appointed time with my sons. Nope – why wait for a divorce to have appointed time with the boys! (Besides, divorce is not an option for Jen and I…she is still putting up with me, bless her heart!)
Every Wednesday I take Charlie (2) out for some one on one daddy time. Jacob (5) is Saturday and Michael (8) is Friday. Sometimes we go somewhere special… sometimes I do skill building (last week Michael made his firs bank deposit all by himself)… but we always spend time together. They look forward to the time every week, a time when they know they have Dad all to themselves. And I really love it – undivided attention with each of my sons.
I don’t have the code cracked on this fathering thing, and I have a lot to learn from you veteran fathers, but I believe that my Daddy Day investments will pay dividends down the road!
