Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

I’m a Big, Dopey Dad

August 24, 2007

The flight was delayed almost two hours, so The Girlie was fast asleep by the time I saw her. But I ingratiated myself into carrying her in from the car when we got home, and when I put her in her crib, she grabbed my finger and wouldn’t let go. She just lay there, completely asleep and gripping my finger with her little hand.

I’m not sure I’ve ever loved anyone in quite the way I love her.

    I know what you mean, Mike. I’m not sure I ever loved anyone (before) AT ALL — that’s how strong it feels.
