“It’s only when you grow up and step back from him–or leave him for your own home–it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.”
–Margaret Truman
There’s more truth to that than you know. We always think we’re so much smarter or wiser, but our fathers always seem to know best. This is one of my favorite pictures, and captures one of my favorite memories with my dad from when I was young. We had so much fun building a snowman, and it was the first time it had snowed at home for me, which made it that much more exciting. My dad, much like me, is a dork. He doesn’t know you’re supposed to have your eyes open during pictures, clearly, and that’s ok. I had to get my weirdness from somewhere. So he may have taught me many things, but having my eyes open during a picture wasn’t one of them. The other was how to be a Giants fan, because some how he went wrong and became a Dodgers fan. I can’t explain it, and I still love him, but I still question his baseball allegiance every single day. 😜 Thanks for everything you do for me, dad, even now. I know sometimes I’m not the easiest to get along with, but we all know where I get that lovely personality trait as well. Stubbornness runs all too well in the family. Thanks for never turning your back, never forgetting about me, and for reminding me it’s ok to have your eyes closed during a picture. I love you, dad! #pjsphotoadventure #HappyFathersDay #FathersDad

Caregiver Dad
