Simon reminded me today of how awesome it is to be his dad. His reaction when I got home was one of amazing joy, and he wanted nothing more than to be picked up so he could give me a tight squeeze and put his head on my shoulder. There isn't a single thing in the world that compares to that.
After dinner, we went out for a walk, and once again he reminded me of the great sense of wonder that kids have for the world. The simple act of running through dried leaves on the sidewalk caused him to light up with excitement. With a big smile, he grabbed for my hand, then Diana's.
He's such a precious gift, and that's why I don't mind prioritizing him over my own needs. That's not to say I don't try to find some balance, but particularly with the short time I have with him in the evenings, I'm all his. I love this little personality coming out.
