*Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play..

*Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

*Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

*Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck and I will buy you one if he comes by.

*Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

*Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

*Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

*Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.

*Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

*Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

*Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

*Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

*I will think about the mothers And fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms , and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

*And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask Him for nothing, except one more day . . .

Man, that struck deep. I am honestly at a lost for words.. The twins we expect is a boy and a girl and I have to tell you, I never thought a pair of pink booties could make a grown man melt like this.

It is obvious that you're an great dad Galjoen! I respect that in a man.

That is so cool Galjoen, and since we're practical family here on the forum I need some fishing rods and reels... :-D


I try to be a good dad
I don't think you have to try.

Great Post, I know the feeling.

Die tyd vlieg so vinnig verby en die geleenthede gaan vir altyd verlore. Myne is al groot en uit die huis en ek mis dit.

Dis alles so waar Galjoen. In later jare wonder 'n mens altyd of jy genoeg gedoen het vir jou kinders, en ek praat nie van wat geld kan koop nie. Ek praat van tyd saam met hulle gespandeer het, vankansies gehou het waarvan hulle ook hou, liefde en drukkies ens., ens.^^..

As jy weer jou oë knip, is hulle groot..
