Fathers, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
- You changed our diapers. That’s a biggie.
- You taught us how to say “Dada,” and then immediately started working on “Peek-a-Boo.”
- You picked us up when we skinned our knees, and helped us know that everything would be ok.
- You held our hand when we were too scared to step onto our first escalator.
- You helped us catch our first lightning bug, giving us our first glimpse of the wonders of the universe.
- You taught us how to ride our bike without training wheels. It was terrifying, and we were pretty sure the bike was trying to kill us, but your steady presence reassured us, and eventually we mastered it.
- You took us to our first baseball game, and caught us our first foul ball, instilling in us a never-dying, all-consuming love of the Atlanta Braves.
- You took us on fishing trips, and graciously baited the hook with the icky worm for us.
- When we were learning to swim, you stood in the deep end and encouraged us to jump into your waiting arms. We were certain our floaties and duck intertube would let us down, but we never doubted your strong hands as they reached up to meet us as we hurdled through the air.
- You patiently listened to us as we explained all the wonderful qualities of our first crush, and then sincerely offered to “visit” that crush when they made us cry.
- You attended all our little league football games and raced down the sideline as we careened down the field on our highlight-reel touchdown run.
- You helped us figure out those ridiculous math problems that began with “John has 28 bananas…” as if a person would ever walk around with 28 bananas.
- When we invited all our friends over to get ready for senior prom, you anxiously waited downstairs with the camera. And when our date showed up, nervous and sweaty-palmed, you tried not to look too intimidating as you told him you expected us home by curfew.
- On our graduation day, you told us you had cut some onions earlier that day, and that you couldn’t be more proud of us.
- On our wedding day, you smiled and told us how pretty we looked, and then you kissed us on the cheek and asked if we were ready.
- When we proudly pointed out our newborn son in the nursery, and you assured us he would grow up to be a great man like his father.
- When our toddlers were driving us insane, you offered to take them for the weekend. And even though we knew you’d feed them Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs, we were grateful to have a couple nights to ourselves.
- When our daughter discovered nail polish, you chatted about unicorns and fairies as she gave you the worst manicure you’ve ever seen. Bright neon pink with glitter really isn’t really your color, but we admire you for beaming at her amazing nail-painting skills.
- When it became difficult for you to run around with our kids, we enjoyed sitting on the rockers on the front porch with you, eating a grapefruit and sipping coffee, reminiscing about our own childhood.
- Mostly we love you because you helped make us who we are today.
