Safe, for a child, is his father's hand, holding him tight.-
We all feel that its important for boys to have a male role model in their life and while some women go at it alone do to personal choice or circumstances beyond their control I think there is truly something special about the relationship between a father and his soon.
I watch Ethan and his eyes light up when Tim is around. Something about hearing his little voice scream " DADDY!!" at the top of his lungs warms my heart.
I watch the 2 of them and see just how different the relationship they have together is different from mine and Ethan's. I'm the cuddler, the singer, the story teller. Tim is the wrestler, the sports lover, the " he's a boy" he'll be fine(r)"
There are those moments when I feel that my patience is gone, and I'm hanging on by a thread only to have Tim come in, scoop Ethan up and throw him in the air and for some reason everything is OK again.
