Feet In The Water

Saturday, July 23, 2011


Scarlett on the slide. I love this photo. Looks like she is sliding from heaven (which if you ask me, she did.)

Being a dad is nothing like I thought it would be. One example is the "Pride", meaning the feeling I get about Scarlett, is something I wasn't prepared for or expecting. I will wear a "world's best dad" shirt if she gives it to me, and I'll bet money if she makes the honor roll and gets a bumper sticker, I'll slap that puppy right on my car. This is really surprising as I usually roll my eyes and say to myself "live your own life, loser" when I see those.

Maybe it's not pride, maybe this is love. I feel it the same way about Amber, especially when I use my term of endearment for her, "Wife". I'm so excited that she is my wife, in a similar way to the way that I'm so excited Scarlett is my daughter.

Whatever it is, I'm glad it's there and I wouldn't change it one bit.

The Toy Store

It's raining today so we took Scarlett to the toy store to run some energy out of her and didn't buy her anything. Are we bad parents? It reminds me an old SNL gag called Deep Thoughts
One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old, burned out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said, "Disneyland has burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.
