“When my oldest daughter was 17 years old, and preparing to go to college, I had another little girl named Sunny. It has been the most amazing experience to raise up one little whippersnapper, have her grow up and leave the nest (not really), and then segue right into another little girl.
I learned a lot the first time around, and I think I am a little better at being a present papa. But, it’s not about me, it’s about her.
Every morning when I get up bleary-eyed and stumble into the kitchen to make her breakfast, and tell her: “for crying out loud stop fooling around and go brush your teeth!” And we do our morning dance and drive to school listening to the terrible pop music that she likes, I know in the depths of my being, that nothing ever could make me happier.
I am in awe of my kids, and to all the other papas out there I say “hooray!” - Flea about Sunny. - 14th June, 2014.
