Jumble Mash...my middle child :-)

I really didn't have much to say today...until I read JM's post on childhood memories :-)  JM and I think so much alike that sometimes it's scary...and I'm not sure which of us should be scared the most!  There have been times that she has been...shall we say...a challenge.  But I must say, even when being a challenge, she has always been interesting. 

The following conversation took place when JM was 5 or 6 and I was tucking her in for the night:

JM:  Daddy, can God see me in the dark?
DAD:  Yeah baby, I'm pretty sure God can see in the dark
JM:  Daddy, what if I cover up my head?
DAD:  JM, what are you trying to hid from God?
JM:  Nothing, I was just wondering!

I couldn't possibly love her more than I do :-)

Dad, I happened across your blog while purusing Hed Above Water. Your comment on her latest post is almost, to the word, exactly what I began to type, but erased because it was too painful to type. I question my ability to be the father all of the time. My daughter is only four but I am a thinker and I often catch myself jumping to what the future holds for her and not the time that I have with her now.

Be well.

@ib...hang in there...as long as you're working at being a good Dad...you've got half the battle won! I'm pretty much an idiot and despite my ineptitude and my flat out screw-ups, I am incredibily happy and proud of the women my daughters have become...kids are pretty good at recovering from our mistakes as long as they know you love them and that they can depend on you.
