My Two Boys

Its been some time since I have put something down on this site. Partly because this past year has been quite challenging in many ways. I'll explain more in the next few weeks. Through it all, I have become more aware and proud of the most important people in my life. My two boys!

Being a parent is tough, and being a parent of two is even tougher. Sometimes you get caught in the middle of it and don't appreciate what you have. Sometimes the big moments make you reflect on this, and lately, I have been having these moments.

I have taken both of my boys to kindergarden, and for each of them, I have left them at their classromm and had tears streaming down my eyes. As I left, the realization that my boys are growing up has hit me. And made me realize how I have been as a parent. How I could have been a better father to my kids. How I could have made their lives better.

Its funny how your life changes when you become a parent. Your life becomes about your kids. Making sure they become good people, and treating them like good people. Sometimes, I wonder if I have done that to the best of my ability. I hope that in the future, my kids will look at me and truly understand how much I love them.

Although this year has been challenging, it probably has been the best thing that has happened to me. It has made me understand what is the most important thing in my life, and reassess what I can do to make them, and myself, better people.

I am a developer, but I am foremost a dad. And being a dad is the most challenging, and most important job I have, and the one I am the most proud of. My kids are truly my life, and I am so incredibly happy to have them part of my life.
