Being a Father is by far the most rewarding, fulfilling and special thing I have EVER experienced in my life. There are constant reminders of JUST how blessed I am when moments like this happen. This morning after a very hectic hour trying to get ready for daycare, filled with some “NO DA DA’s!”, a few toys being thrown across the living room and even “Da Da” utilizing a very forceful threat of a “timeout”. Yes, I went there. I finally got Ryder into the car and was talking about his friends at his school, things we did over the weekend etc. Then we started talking about “Teddy”. His bear that I HAD TO run in and get even though we were already pulling out of drive way. Either way, I was getting him out of car seat at daycare and he looked at me and said “Me no take Teddy, he go help Da Da at work”. I said Oh really? He said, “Yes, Da Da” . My heart melted because he knows how hard I work and even at 2 and a half, he wanted to help me. Sweetest thing ever. Ryder, thank you and Daddy love’s you!!! XO.
