a present for dad
There's not a lot a three month old can give his dad for Father's Day. Kaden can grasp things, sure, but he doesn't yet have the motor control to "offer" them to someone. He doesn't really own much anyway. But today Kaden did indeed find a way to give me somethin.
Kaden was born with the instinct to get one thing, milk, and he very quickly developed the instinct to give it back again. So Kaden is hanging above my head playing airplane when he realizes this is his time to strike. He's smiling and shaking. And I'm smiling as I lock into his bright eyes (just as he planned). We're just having a grand old time and POW - spit-up and gravity did their thing right into start-up dad's mouth. His timing was perfect, like a mother bird feeding her kids.
I won't even bother explaining the taste, you can imagine. I must admit being slightly curious about the taste of breast milk, but not quite this way. Happy dad's day everyone, may your child give you something better than regurgitated breast milk.
