There’s Nothing Sweeter than the Memories that Come with Being a Dad [Video]
There's truly nothing that has made my life more complete than being a dad. I've had the honor and privilege of raising two great kids who I have always been, and continue to be, proud of. There's no experience that can compare to the awesome, sometimes trying, experience of being a parent.
With the help of my wife, Marie Anne, who always went to extreme measures to help Matt and Michell succeed, we've seen them into adulthood and, now, we have another little one, Evan (Matt's 5-year-old) who has become the little light of our lives.
Still, I see both of our children as little people with big eyes that lit up with amazement the first time we took them to Disney World. This was just one of many, many sweet memories I have and, unlike most of the others that live eternally inside my head, that first Disney trip is one I put to music with some of the (old school film) photos we collected.
What prompted me to do this was the night I knelt next to (then little) Michelle's bed and she was quietly weeping.
"What's wrong, honey?" I asked.
"I was just thinking about our trip to Disney. It was the best time of my life."
Do you any specific sweet memories that stand out of YOUR children?
