Question:How has being a Dad enhanced your life?

Asked by jeanfroner on 2/11/08 1 Answer»

Answer:

I became a father for the first time at the tender age of 19. Nothing could prepare me for the first sight of my son. Brand new, those tiny fingers and toes. Life changed for me/us from that moment on. Your priorities change at that same time and you make your every move with your child's interest in mind.

I grew up in a hurry and can remember those long nights like they were yesterday. The greatest thing for me is how I was able to make my children's activities a major part of my life and participate in most of them over the years. I have videos of the first steps, baseball, football, soccer games, birthday parties and all the rest.

I simply smile now whenever I think of the events gone by, Now I anxiously (well not that anxiously) await my time to spoil my grandchildren!
