They are sometimes a joy, other times a real challenge.  Sometimes they behave, but there are no guarantees.  They are our responsibility, our children.  They look to us for guidance, direction and answers, at least until they are old enough to know it all.  

As they mature they become a point of interest, even a chance to learn (or remember).  They can converse and carry on, they can joke and tease, they become even more interactive with the family.  It is fascinating to watch them grow, learn, and become their own persons.

On Father’s Day, aside from the cards and the chance to choose what to have for dinner, don’t forget to celebrate having your kids.  Recall all the good times (and forget the bad, at least for one day).  Enjoy the company and the attention.  Be Glad to be Dad!!
