No, Dad, I am totally not calling you old. It’s just a song. Or a saying. Or something. It’s pretty evident to anyone who reads Big Binder that I really love my Dad and that he is very important to my family and to me.
When I was 16, my Mom died. I didn’t really ‘get it’ until I myself became a parent, but my Dad had an incredibly difficult, exhausting, and draining job ahead of him as a single parent. Let me just say publicly… Dad, thank you.
Fatherhood is important. I am fortunate to have a husband who is also a great dad. Kids need a positive male figure in their life. I am really proud to be a part of Great Start, especially because of a presentation coming up next month I want to tell you about.
Senator Bill Hardiman will be speaking at the David D Hunting YMCA (the big, fancy one downtown) about the importance of male role models for children. This isn’t a political event, it’s a man who speaks from his own experience and genuinely wants to support strong fatherhood in his own community. It’s free, and you also get a day pass to the YMCA. Now is your chance to check out that awesome pool! I will be helping with the event, I sincerely hope to see you and your family too.
