"Absolutely you can help bud." I found those words coming out of my mouth last night when I was finishing the fence in the backyard. I was in the zone and was racing daylight when my little Ethan popped by and asked if he could help. The task slowed a little and I had to shut off my audio book, but I was reminded yet again that I am a dad first. It's time with me that matters most to him, and when I stop to think I realize it's time with him that matters most to me. He woke up this morning with such incredible pride for what we did in our time together. It won't always be like this. Opportunities to connect that are lost now are gone forever. I never want to miss such an opportunity with these little guys.
