It took me nearly thirty years to realise how good a man my Dad is. That he did literally everything he could to give us the life he couldn’t have, sparing none of his time, energy or resources to make it happen. And now that I’ve got my own kids, I appreciate it all so much more, hoping my kids can come to that realisation with me a whole lot sooner.
But there’s the million-dollar question to all Dads—are you your kids’ superhero, or are you the guy they love because they should?
I might not always be my sons’ favourite, but the smiles on their faces when I get home each day don’t lie. The joy I hear as we horse around tells me I’m doing something right.
Almost made me wonder why I didn’t have kids sooner.
But in any case, I’m grateful that my parents paved the way for a life where I regularly hang with my kids—it gives me the opportunity to keep being their superhero!
Are You Your Kid’s Superhero? Then Let’s Celebrate That!
We won’t always immediately know the impact our actions will have on our kids at first. What may look like an epic fail to us may turn out to be an amazing memory for our children, so it’s up to us to bring our best as parents and keep making that happen.
Good luck to you Dads out there—you can always do better at Father’s Day!
’til the next,
