Responsible parenting and leadership are a start. In between reaching for the sky (Toy Story rocks).

Screw the darkness. I prefer the lightness of Pop.

And in the space between me and Bea, there is none.

I was only gone for a few days this week for a conference, but while I was away Bea grew and grew and grew...

Really. She looks so much bigger. She's so much more animated.

It's as if she emanates a soft, rainbow aura that is silky to the touch and smells of flowers and sun.

Each time I hold her close I'm more the dad I never had as a child.

My daddy play includes throwing her in the air above my head -- her golden spun hair flying, her smile ever-widening.

And in the space between me and Bea, there is none.

  1. Little man loves that game too. We also play a game where I lift him up really high over my head and ask him "how did you get so tall?" The laughter is infectious.

  2. She's a beautiful little girl. I'm so glad you can share these times together. There is nothing like the laughter and love of a child.

  4. She is really cute. I think she is lucky too to have a Dad that loves her so much.
