Fun In The Sun.....

Spring could not get here soon enough!! I am so tired of the cold and dreary. Ayden and I have almost wore out Star Wars and Madden on the Wii. He keeps begging for me to buy Indiana Jones and I am holding out on him...So the warm weather better hurry up and get here. We have some fun in the sun to take care of and lay the wii down for awhile. I hear it's supposed to be warm this weekend and we are taking up all of Saturday with his Basketball game, Rock Climbing B-day party and a MSU game.....Sheesh great planning on my part, they are all indoors!
Well I have a feeling it's going to be "Park Sunday"!
Spring...... hurry please!

Lessons taught, lessons learned

It's amazing how much Ayden teaches me something I either have forgotten along this twisting road of life, or simply have never learned.
Being the father I yearn to be, doesn't always mean I am in the drivers seat on teaching life's great lessons. Ayden teaches me daily the fullfillment of love, forgiveness, honesty and unfiltered excitement!
Ayden is very emotional driven. This is a double edged sword at times but what it brings in hurt feelings, it doubles in the way he is able to express his love. The hugs, kisses, and pats on the back telling me " It's OK " come regularly.
Not remembering to pack his snack for his lunch when I only have to remember one day a week drives me insane. I always feel horrible, but to Ayden it's another chance to tell his Dad "that's alright, you'll remember next time!"
He's only five shouldn't he be throwing a fit?
