Father's Day

I'm not a big fan of Hallmark holidays but I still celebrate Mother's Day and Father's Day. Unfortunately we need to be reminded yearly to honor our parents.
A group of the neighborhood parents got together today and we shared Father's Day now with a nearly 2 year old and it's kind of like the kids are old enough to really give their own brand of present to their dads.
One dad said that his day was topped by his son sitting on the floor and rolling a ball towards him, an early sign of catch with pop. His eyes beamed with pride.
What did TG do? She went for a ride on Daddy's bicycle with him. Sure there were tears shed and pleas to be released from the crazy contraption but after two circular rides around the playground, the terror actually left her face and she seemed to enjoy it. Either that or she was catatonic. Only her shrink will know for sure.
