When you have children, you begin to notice all the little things that have a profound effect on your kids' lives.
One kind word here, one not-so-kind word there can have ramifications that last decades.
Are your kids going to be passing your wisdom on to their children, or talking about you to their therapist when they're 35.
It's frightening how easy it is to mess up your kids when they're so young and impressionable, but it's also exciting how easy it is to mold them into good people.
You don't need to be perfect. You just need to be loving, caring and involved.
I've discovered something else too. I'm absurdly lucky.
I've got two mothers in my life who have made my job really easy.
First, my mom raised me to be the person I am today. I don't mean to sound conceded or anything, but I'm pretty awesome.
Then, there's Katie. You guys read this blog, you don't need me to tell you how incredible she is. You should see her lift both babies at once -- AH-MAZING.
So, on this Mothers' Day, I'd just like to say thank you to the moms who made it so easy for be to be the best dad in the world.
