Today my son turns 4. I can’t even begin to express what a roller coaster ride the last 4 years have been, but to see the person he is growing up to be is truly amazing. It’s hard sometimes to remember that he is only 4 years old. His vocabulary and mannerisms are that of someone much older, say 16.

As a dad, it’s sometimes hard to show your kids how much they mean to you. In between all the griping and protecting them from themselves it sometimes gets lost in translation. In case I don’t say it enough, I love you kiddo. Have a great birthday.
