4 years, 1 month.
I recently realized that of all people, I didn’t own an official holiday sweater. Seriously, I’m the epitome of dads who should own one!
A few days ago at work, my friend Sam walked in wearing a holiday sweater featuring two reindeer facing each other, with a giant snowflake in between them.
That’s the moment I became aware of my sweaterless condition.
Conveniently, the same day I received a gift card for Target. I was there for probably 30 minutes, not really impressed by any of their holiday sweaters; either too expensive or just not enough character. But right as I officially gave up, I saw it…
A Captain America sweater! Seriously, how awesome is that?!
It couldn’t be more perfect.
Turns out, today at your school, KinderCare, it was “holiday sweater day.” So you got to wear your grumbly monster sweater, while I wore my new one as well.
So now you and I are both set when it comes to owning that special token holiday sweater. Both of ours are funny, masculine, and awesome… to represent us, right?
I feel that little stories like these really help represent my pride as your dad. I love it that you enjoy making goofy selfies with me.
It’s so much fun to celebrate in stuff like this together with you. I keep reminding you that a year from now, the first of the new Star Wars movies will be in theatres and we’ll get to see it together. What a perfect time to be a little boy!
You’ve already expressed interest in Yoda.
And I think daily about how next summer, we get to camp out in the backyard of a new house, that we are scheduled to close on January 29th.
I like being your Daddy.
