Disneyworld for us

    Newer Older

    Disneyworld is the perfect place for 7-year-olds and the 7-year-old in me. We had a great time there and I can't wait to get back again. Tina took this shot for us one afternoon in the Animal Kingdom.

    This picture reminds me of how nice it is to be a hero to someone. It's kind of one of those things that I've always wanted to be. I'm afraid some day I will lose this "hero" status. I don't want to think about that right now!

      I think to a certain extent, dad's never really stop being heros... at least mine never has. It's just that, at some point, we become our own person and thus look toward ourselves for guidance and strength. The mark of good parenting, in my mind. As parents, I feel we probably need to trust ourselves that we have done our job and let them do as they will. If we've done our job well, they'll always look back to us as role models.

      edit: Forgot to mention that I love that this shot evokes a kind of nostalgia for me, even though I don't know the subjects. I can almost feel the sunshine and recall a sense of being there in some way. Kudos!

      " I'm afraid some day I will lose this "hero" status. I don't want to think about that right now!"

      Yes, that is a difficult thing. The day that you have to say, "I don't know," and you see the look of disbelief and disappointment in your child's face is a hard day. A landmark.

      I love that your eyes are closed in this image. It makes it a portrait of your son and all of his pirate jewelery. You just happen to be there, giving him some support, but the day is for him.

      when I get angry at my daughter... sometimes because she wants to be all the time on my legs or my shoulder.... at night I think what a stupid guy I am... I am his hero and... it will not last forever (!)... for this things it is tough to be 'daddy" ... :-) so I try to keep in mind what a wonderfull experience it is!! (thanks for sharing)

      Don't worry, you become a hero again after the teenage years. My best friend is my 25 year old son. He had a rough time as a teenager.

      And after they grow up you can be a hero to your grandkids. That's where we are now. They are turning into teenagers, but still great kids.
      We can have fun together, and let the parents do the discipline stuff.
      Cute shot.

      such a keepsake photo. Why wasn't your eyes open???! I can see where your son gets his great looks from. Just keep up with being a great father and you'll always be his hero. Maybe one day when he's old enough to have a myspace, you'll be under "hero" section. Im jk!

      What a happy photo! I'm jealous! ^_^

      HAHA! I like what you said. If you raise your kids right youll go from being a hero to being a supper hero. Because when they grow up they will wounder how you did all that you did! And you will become their inspiration.

      Man, based on my experience, you never loose that status. My father is still my hero, my moral compass, and my rol model.
