Drew took Sage on a Special Night tonight. Sage's pick. McDonalds with a play place. Ronald loves to hear that.
Drew asked Sage "What can I do to be a better dad?"
Sage answers, "You can play with my cars with me. And drive me to Cubbies."
Drew, a little bit taken aback, laughs a little.
To which Sage replies, "I'm being silly aren't I?"
Isn't it amazing how much of an impact we have on our kids? All day, every day, I spend with them, and I wonder what impacts them? Do they remember that I pray before we eat? Do they notice if I don't read my Bible at the breakfast table? Do they notice if I spend more time on the computer than I do with them?
Sometimes, I think I am failing miserably. I spend too much time reading blogs, searching for new blogs to read, or browsing stores.
I used to have a rule, no internet when the kids are awake. I think I need to go back to that rule. I know I need to go back to that rule.
I don't want to realize as I am dropping them off at college that I missed their little years reading about other kids' little years.
Drew's going to start driving us to Cubbies too.
