father to son part 1

so i came across this book at the bookstore back home and kasey and i have been reading it... i thought that it might be fun to share bits of it through out the rest of the year and when the boy gets here... we giggle.

here are the five important keys...

turning a boy into a man is a man's job. since the begining of time, it's been up to a father to make his son responsible. kind. courageous. honorable.
a young boy doesn't come with instructions. he comes with boundless love and an adventurous spirit. but the journey to manhood begins very early... the first time he looks at his dad and thinks, "i want to be like him."

be around.

be his father, not his friend. if you don't understand the difference, imagine his confusion when you must discipline him.

be a good husband. show his mom respect at all times.

be home for dinner.

be his hero.

until next time...
