Fathering a Lovely Girl

Things are really pretty darn good recently. Marion and I were heading over to meet Keleigh after work with the intent of going out for some pizza, and once I saw Keleigh I started to cry. I have a wonderful wife, and a wonderful life, and it all hit me at the same time. I looked in the backseat, saw my daughter, and I was overcome with just how wonderful things are right now.

Marion is learning so much, and she's a great companion for each day. She's growing up, and soon she'll be walking around on her own, and talking to other children, and being more independant. It'll be soon. Too soon. I'm pretty attached to this stage of her development, it appears. I just can't imagine a time that she's too big for me to sweep her up into my arms.

I know that I'll have to accept the changes, as that's just the way it's going to be, and she needs me to accept it in order for us both to be as happy and as healthy as we can be. It just makes me cry right now though. I see other parent's toddlers, and I'm just amazed, amazed and a bit scared. Will she still need me like she needs me now? Will she love me like I love her, when she's three, when she's ten?

I know, "it's all going to be okay". I'm too involved in this right now to see the future, and I just love her so much right now that I can't possibly imagine that the future can even compare.

You are both such great parents! Your bond with her will just keep getting better everyday...that is were the words from the song came from....

I don't know what song you're talking about. I suppose I should know, seeing as I'm a music-guy, but I don't.

Thanks for the compliment though, and the reassurance about the bond between Marion and I.
