Father and child shoe shopping at the DSW across from Union Square Park. The father carefully inspects flexibility of the shoes as the child prances from one shoe to the next entertaining himself.
I noticed the boy and cracked a smile at him. He tilts his head to look at me and screams “it’s not funny.” I apologize.
Few moments after the incident, the child asks his father “is she an adult?” and he answers “yes.” With a terrorized look in his face the child says “daddy, I just talked to a stranger!” The father looks down at the boy, gripping the shoe in his hand and ever so calmly says “well, you initiate it”
the greatest thing a father can do for his daughter is love her mother
When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change
it’s like forgetting the words to your favorite song, you can’t believe it, you were always singing along
