Just awesome. Thank you for writing this — as others have already said your memory of your dad is as clear as day and through your writing I feel like I know him now too. As a father of two girls and the ‘goofy’ one in the family I often wonder if my girls take me seriously. I wonder if they think I’m only there for the shits and giggles. I think, based on what I read here, that I can stop wondering and just keep being myself and being present for my munchkins.
