A Father's Pride and Joy

This was an email Mr. Finn sent out to some of his friends.
I thought it was so sweet that I wanted to 
remember it forever and so 
I posted it here.
Hello All,
Today is a reminder for me that sometimes when we think we know what is best we are not so subtlely reminded how little we may actually know about ourselves. Today is my son's 4th birthday. He was born at 7:35 AM, which is funny because he is always up early. He is my second child, and that is the interesting point. For I had only wanted one child. I figured it would be all I could do to raise one. Boy would I have missed out. He is funny, he is usually gentle, kind and very loving, once he decides you can get to know him. His ability to get humor amazes me. He fills a part of our family I did not even know was missing. I often joke that he is just happy to be here. But I am the one who is truly grateful that he is here. For he has made me a better me than I would have been without him. So today is a holiday. A celebration of those things we wanted but didn't get and were better for it. Today is the Dude's birthday and I am so excited to be celebrating it. 

Have a great day I know I will.

PS. Over the weekend he and I had the chance to watch a movie, so I picked Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which he kept referring to it as Chimi Chonga and the Chocolate factory. I thought wow a movie with two of his favorite things chocolate and Mexican food!!!
