My daughter and I had a wonderful time working on a dad and daughter affirmation project!
It's complicated being asked how my father influenced my parenting.
My wife took a picture that probably represents me better than any other picture of me. It shows the love between a daughter and her father. It shows patience, as I am explaining aspects of basketball to my child. And it shows a new, shared bond. My daughter's budding interest in basketball, a sport I love, has made us even more close. I can't stop smiling when I look at this.
