All too often, it’s easy to get caught up in the swirling vortex of life and forget that being a Dad, just like anything else, is about the little moments that add up to something wonderful.
On that note, I’m off to paint my daughter’s fingernails (and probably toenails).
Update: Sparkly nail polish is much harder to apply than regular nail polish. This and numerous other things (how to braid hair, how to untangle hair, how to get water out of toys…) are knowledge that only comes to men if they end up being fathers or caregivers of some kind. I’m not sure that this will actually make a difference down the line, but it sure is fun to see more of life whenever you get a chance.
