There are just so many. I love my kids. I know I complain about them and I complain to them, and I yell and I punish but at the end of the day I love my babies. I wouldn’t take back having them for anything in this world. They are my world. They make me laugh like no one can, piss me off that I want to send them off to a boarding school and make me cry till I’m all puffy and gross looking. But I love them and they are mine and I would do anything for them.
With that said there are so many things I want them to learn. Don’t steal, don’t cheat (life or your wife/girlfriend), don’t lie, don’t hit a woman unless she hits first then all rules out the door. I know some disagree with this but my thinking is why should a woman have a right to hit her man and not the other way around. Forget about men being stronger than woman, fair is fair. Use your tongue rather than your fists unless they hit first than beat the shit out of them…honestly I’m not a violent person despite what my last two sentences say I just want my kids to be able to stand up for themselves. Do good in school and no matter what get a college degree. It really does make a difference in life. Be good to your wife. Be a good father. Don’t just make kids, play with them, read them stories and be there for them when they need you. I would love for my kids to hold all these values and so many more close to their hears and minds but the most important one is be
That’s it….just be HAPPY.
I want them to know that life is hard. There will be some great joys and disappointments waiting for them. That they will shed so many more tears but at the same time they will laugh so hard they will pee in their pants. People will hurt them but that's all part of life and thru all of this I just want them to be
I want them to be happy about the choices they make & happy about the people that they’ve chosen to keep in their lives.
I want them to be able to see the "light at the end of the tunnel". To know that even thought today looks bad maybe tomorrow won't be and even if it is one day things will get better. There is nothing that scares the shit out of me more than the thought of my babies hurting themselves (suicide, cutting and other things). I can't imagine not having them around because they thought life was too hard for them/on them and they just couldn't go on. So I just want them to know that life will get better, there are so many wonderful things in this world to make them happy so please don't give up.
Life is too short not to enjoy it even when times are bad. Everyday is a gift so enjoy it and find something to make you happy today.
