Why I don't fish.

Many years ago, I got into fishing. I'd go with my friend, Frank, several evenings each week after work. We'd leave right after work, and return home around 10:00 pm or so.

One day after work I was rushing around, getting ready to leave to go fishing.
Kristy said, "Dad where are you going".
I told her I was going fishing, then being a bit sarcastic I said, "So we will having something to eat".
She replied, "I think we'd rather starve and have you stay home and play with us."

I gave up fishing not long after that.

(Shrug.) Oh well, I guess I spoiled your fun there, didn't I? Or... you kould look at it this way... (I'm tilting my head *LOL*)... seriously though... I have lots of good memories of you being home with us girls, playing with Barbies (what a man!), going over to play at the ball field, watching Benny Hill (shame on you, Dad, what a terrible show for children! *LOL*), and other fun stuff! I had a great childhood!!! :-)

Remember one of you guys telling me, "We're glad you don't do any of those man-things". Upon further inquiry, it was explained that you were referring to fishing, hunting, golf, etc. Besides, it was much more fun staying at home and letting you paint my toe nails and put bows in my hair.

You always were a good sport! You can't forget the waxing either!

You are a wise man. I read a post today of a young lady who was asked the question,"What from your past do you miss the most?" She is seventeen now. Her answer was,"The relationship that I had with my daughter when I was younger."

It broke my heart. According to some more of her profile it was evident that her and her dad do not have that relationship anymore. Your story inspires me even more to pay special attention to my daughter who is three. Attention to her now and always.

Thanks for sharing.
