I got a text from 13 at about 7:00 this morning:

First day of school feels weird without you. I woke up and ran into Mom's room and said, "We need to take the yearly picture on the porch. That's what Dad always did."

Then he sent me a picture of him and his little brother on the front porch with their backpacks.

Sweet kid!

You've done a great job there dad. How sweet that your boy thought of you and the the tradition you created with them.

Kudos to your DS for keeping your tradition alive. Its always nice to know when the little things you do as a parent get noticed. Sorry you couldn't be there for your children today but it was nice that you were in their thoughts.

Thanks. I didn't mention it to him, but the porch picture has been on my mind the past few days. He's a thoughtful guy!

Oh, doesn't that just make it all worthwhile.

I'm beaming over here - you must be bursting with pride.

Love this.


I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

We definitely need a "like" icon here.

What a great kid. You did good pass. He's going to grow up to be a fine man.
