My wife and I often lament the fast pace of life. One of the best nights of my life was 2 yrs age when I took my then 8 yo daughter on a date. She got to pick the place of dinner and the event (a movie). It was intended to show her how a man should treat her, but the treat was all mine.
It was one of the best nights of my life and has cemented a strong relationship between us. We took pictures and my wife was so proud!
She is an "Oops" baby, but she makes me laugh every day. I can't imagine my life without her. I know when I grow old enough to be a really old fart, she'll be there to take care of me (Thank God!!)
