In just three short weeks Dawn and I will be dropping Kayce off for his first day of pre-school. Reality has sunk in and I am having a hard time swallowing this pill.  I realize now you can’t fully grasp the pinch of a situation like this until you go through it. Some parents go through it earlier with daycare, some skip pre-school, and some can’t cut the tie at all and choose home schooling. This is the point at which Kayce leaves our cozy nest.

We each have our own selfish reasons for dreading this. Some parents say it makes them feel older. Others talk about the uncertainty of leaving their child in the care of others. The root of my worry is no longer being able to filter all the data which comes his way.  It’s not so much if he comes home saying a cuss word.  More so, I worry Kayce’s glowing personality may be altered by forces I can not control.  As hard as I try to be the best father and Dawn the best mother and raising our kids with the right morals.  It’s the outside environment which now becomes a great factor in his development. Kayce is entering the world, a small step, but he is.

Be good to him world. I can speak from experience, he will show you boundless love and charisma.

Conor got to enjoy his first Cubs game on 6/30 against the Pirates. Grandpa Ken got a hold of some great tickets just behind the home dugout and Dawn went with him, Kayce and Conor.

Before the game Kayce asked if he was going to get to play. When Dawn told him he only got to watch, he said he didn’t want to go unless he could play. As a father, and even more as some one who has been infatuated with all things Baseball since I can remember, that one made me incredibly proud to hear.

Life as a Cubs fan starts enthusiastically when you are young

Ice Cream at the ball game, is there anything more hand in hand as a kid?

Checkout this view! Dad is going to be VERY jealous!

Can't miss a once in a lifetime photo op like this
