One of the zillion cool things about having kids:
Showing your kid how to blow the seeds off a dandelion, and watching his expression when you demonstrate the process for the first time. He just looked at me like, “That is the absolute coolest thing I’ve ever seen.”
It’s amazing how much we take the little details in life for granted. I’ve seen thousands of dandelions, but that was his first one. When he discovers something new and then gets excited about it, I often find myself thinking, “You know, that is pretty cool.”
I love my job, I really do.
Of course, all the magical moments like the dandelion thing come packaged with those occasions when the young explorer ponders questions such as, “I wonder what dog poop tastes like?” On the whole, however, it’s a lot of fun to be a parent.
