Emmett had OT again this afternoon. Today however, it was raining. Emmett refused to walk and wanted me to carry him because he didn’t want to walk on the water.
Now, I of course picked him up and carried him. However, upon picking him up and walking to the door, Emmett looked me dead in the eyes and said “wow Daddy, you walk on water”.
Now honestly, let’s see a show of hands, who wouldn’t want to hear their child say that to them?
I realize that I can’t truly walk on water in the proverbial sense. However, today, as far as Emmett’s concerned I did. After all I carried him across the wet concrete. I just smiled because he just made my day.
You don’t have to really walk on water to be a hero to your kids. So often I get down on myself for not being able to provide for my family better or take away their struggles.
With that said, Emmett showed me today that I’m doing better than I thought I was. Much like the famous Visa commercials, this was priceless.

Warm fuzzies 🙂 Moments like these are the ones that stick with you forever.
That is so precious, Rob. You are doing a wonderful job and you are a hero. You are so fortunate that your children can surprise you with these beautiful observations and thoughts. PS. If you can turn water into wine, that would rock my world. 😉
Awe, that is so sweet! Glad he brought a smile to your day!
Thanks Toni 🙂
