My little guy just turned two (2) this past Thursday. He is my youngest and only son.
|Pondering Life's Unanswered Questions.... Or Thinking of taking one of dads cold ones!|
I often find myself wishing him to grow up sooner, for selfish reasons of course. That way I can ensure a guaranteed fishing, hunting, exploring; partner and buddy. But what fun would that be? I already feel he is growing up to fast... Not to mention how old the kids (2) can make me feel, almost 31..... Shit! Where have the last 6 years gone.
Anyway, I can't wait to get a fly rod in this kids hand..... and yes I am a firm believer in allowing your kids to choose their hobbies and likes. But, I am his dad and I am sure he will love chase as much as I... This may be my only chance to influence his life long hobbies (as did my father). And I thank him for that.... I only hope I can be as fun (and cool) as Buzz Lightyear and Blues Clues.... Maybe someone should start a kids fishing show/ cartoon on the tube. (Think about it, could be a real money maker! Isn't everything for kids!)
All in all kids are a blast! I am so excited for what the future brings and to see how my little guy (and gal) learn, develop and grow.
Cheers to all of you with kids and staying involved!
