I was a part time dad with my daughter. Until the past few years, I didn't realize the impact I had on her, just “dragging her around" on the weekends when I had nothing planned but had errands to run.
When I brought dress clothes for work, who knew that today, she says there's something about men in suits and men wearing ties she just likes. Even if she can't figure out the combination to make it work.
That's what I try to remember with my son.
