How Are We Trained

... to be Fathers?

My parents say that Patrick has us very well trained ... and he well might.

He lifts his arms and we lift him up.  He points and we carry him in the direction he wants to go.  He throws something, we give it back for him to throw again.

Parents that know us roll their eyes (some unspoken knowledge, I expect). I suspect they are laughing with us ...

As we teach him how to live life ... to love God, respect his family, and to be a productive member of society ... he is teaching us about life, as well.  What those lessons are, I'm not one hundred percent sure, but I am certain they will be valuable to me in my future endeavors.
