Being a Father: Yankees Giveaway

NOTE: At the end of this post, I'll tell you the rules for my Fathers Day 2022 Contest: The winner will receive either a Game Used Yankee Stadium Base Autographed & Inscribed by Aaron Boone, or a Mariano Rivera Autographed Baseball.

My father died when I was eleven, and was in and out of my life before that, so I don't have too many solid memories of him.

And while I was super close with my mother, I never felt like I knew "the whole story" with her. I think my mom operated under the "I didn’t want to tell you because you weren’t ready" mentality, and we never quite got there.

In anticipation of Father's Day, I've been thinking a lot about what being a father means to me, and a big part of it is sharing as much of my life as possible with my two kids.

This meant bringing them to work as much as was possible (and realistic) while they were growing up, and it also meant letting them have a voice in where we'd go on vacation, or to eat - or any of our family plans, for that matter. And it's meant being open with my children emotionally (within reason of course).

Being a father has also meant passing on "life lessons." I've always emphasized three "golden rules" with my kids:

1. Be a good person to everyone.

2. Be a good brother and son with your family.

3. Do your best in school.

Those were our only "non-negotiable" rules. We drilled them into our kids very early on.

And it's very satisfying to see what generous adults they've become, what good sports they are at all times.

But being a father is not just about how I "parent" my kids; it's also about how they influence me!

My kids, in addition to my wife, serve as my accountability police.

They keep me honest by goofing on me what seems like all of the timeThey help me to not take myself too seriously.

It’s good to have people who know you and are completely open and honest with you. Who can critique you.

My daughter often calls me out when I tell her a story: "I can't believe you said that to that person!" (She also helps me dress sometimes.)

For me, the bottom line is that being a father is about more than the love I have for my kids: It's the teaching that only my my wife and I can provide them - and it's the learning that we can only get from them.

  • Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such a thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256

  • I’m Travis Hall, A 44-year-old resident of Port St. Lucie, Florida, I won the $5 million top prize from the $20 Monopoly Doubler Scratch-Off game. If happened after I contacted Dr Lucas through a friend of mine ( Richard Wahl) who also won $533 million in mega millions jackpot on march 30th 2018 draw, I took the decision to contact Dr Lucas and luckily he responded and told me the right thing to do which I did perfectly well without wasting of time, he did all he has to do in the space of 24 hours and gave me the winning numbers and directions to play. Dr Lucas told me to play the Monopoly Doubler scratch-off lottery. So on that fateful day I stopped by a Publix grocery store with the intention of purchasing a sandwich. While there, I also took a chance on the $20 Monopoly because I so much believe in Dr Lucas’ spell, and I really won the Monopoly Doubler scratch-off lottery. Are you playing any type of lottery game and you have never won anything yet? Dr Lucas is the only tested and trusted man I can refer you to, it’s a no scam zone.

  • I’m Emmanuel, residing in London, United Kingdom. I’ve been happily married with two children and a wonderful wife. However, a significant crisis struck my family when I lost my job. As a result, my wife left our home because I couldn’t provide for her and our kids at that time. I persevered for four years, but eventually, the situation became unbearable. Desperate for a solution, I turned to the internet for assistance in reuniting with my family and regaining my job.

    During my online search, I encountered numerous testimonials, leading me to choose Dr. Murugu Temple. Dr. Murugu provided guidance and instructions that I followed faithfully. Remarkably, within just 72 hours, my workplace reinstated me, and on the same day, my wife returned with our children, expressing her regrets for her actions. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Murugu for his invaluable assistance and support throughout this challenging period.

    For those in need, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Murugu’s services, which you can access via the following contact information: Email:
