I have to say, looking at these photos last night made me a bit emotional.

It’s emotional because I know that I only have a handful of these types of days left before he grows up and doesn’t want to be my little man anymore. I really enjoyed every minute, even our car ride wasn’t too bad because I know that soon I won’t even have the chance.

A part of the reason I was able to be so present and aware of the importance of the day was because of the people I was with. They are co-workers who either have grown kids that told me, “I remember when my kids were that age, enjoy it!” or who have kids the same age as mine who shared the ways their own child is the same or different as mine.

I didn’t take it for granted, and even though we are all busy all the time, I’m going to try to set up more Father-Son/Daddy-Daughter days like this because you never know when it will be the last one.
