Remembering to Taste Life
There are silly, goofy dads. Lighthearted dads with incomparable imaginations and bubbly personalities brimming with positivity and unyielding amounts of praise and sunshine and happiness.
I’m not one of them.
Maybe it's my gruff New England upbringing or the fact that I was raised a pessimistic Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots fan when the former was cursed and the latter was a joke. But the fact remains, I'm a serious dad. I demand good grades in school and 100% effort in all endeavors and for better or worse, "fun" is probably not a word my kids would associate with me.
But sometimes I wish things were different. I don’t mean changing my personality (because that’s never going to happen), but occasionally I think I need a reminder that life can be pretty sweet if you just slow down and take a taste.
