Sometimes, you let things get bigger in your head than they really need to be. Sometimes, you lose perspective on what you have, and how important that is.
Brock and I are having a baby boy, and I will love him no matter what his name is – whether I pick it or not.
So, for Christmas, I gave Brock a picture frame with a 3D picture of our son, and a letter.
The letter said:
I know we said we weren’t going to get anything for each other this year, but I really wanted to give you this.
It’s your choice, no strings attached.
You can have whatever you like.
I love you always,
When he opened the box, he saw a picture frame of his little boy, with “Name me, Daddy!” written across the top.
He got mad at me later on for making him cry in front of his parents. Just a little mad though.
That was the best Christmas present ever.
