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.

  • Maye Musk Recovery Hacker Are Currently Collecting Money Back To All Scam Victims/ Bank Scam/Bitcoin, Crypto Scam/ And Other Type Of Hacking You Would Require i recommend MAYE MUSK COMPANY

    Most recovery companies will take your money again, loosing money online is very common in our days, I was a victim of investment scam. I contacted several recovery companies online..it was all tragic story. I didn’t tell my husband I invested online but at that point I couldn’t hold it. I told my husband and believe you me he was the solution to my problem. His friend had same problem and have someone who helped him figure it out. At first I thought it was all going to be crap as always, but to my greatest surprise it was a job well done. I wouldn’t have believed if someone told me because of my experience with different recovery companies with series of unfulfilled promises. Now I’m convinced from experience. I recommend: Maye Musk Recovery Hacker Security Services to anyone in need of similar help.

  • Hi everyone, I come with goodnews on how you can win the lottery. Winning the lottery was a dream come through for me and this was made possible with the help of Dr Kumar lottery winning numbers. All my years of playing the lottery I was unable to win on my own and online tips could not help me as well. I keep trying and also researching on how I can improve my chances of winning and I came across a lot of comments about Dr Kumar lottery winning numbers which have indeed made a lot of people lottery winners. I also contacted Dr Kumar by email and requested for my winning numbers which he responded to and sent me the winning numbers which I played and won the EuroMillions jackpot. You can contact Dr Kumar on email: SPELLCASTTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM or WhatsApp +2347051705853 to send you your lottery winning numbers. This is the only way you can win the lottery by contacting Dr Kumar to send you the winning numbers.

  • I learnt about Decode Hackers at a desperate time in my life. I found this site ymwex.com the full url that I was trading on is https://www.ymwex.com/mobile/#/pages/mine/mineCenter it didn’t seem to have any indicators of a fraudulent firm like what was described to me earlier so I invested with them before i even thought it out that it could be a scam firm. They are based in Germany, the USA and claim to have been established in 2015 and were asking me to pay US taxes on a withdrawl of ETH before they will release it. They also were registered with the MSB, My family all came to the conclusion that it was a scam. I went hunting for a hacker when I came across DECODE HACKERS. Their rating and reviews were likeable and a quick check with a federal agent also came positive. That was 2 weeks ago. I am eternally grateful to them for recovering my funds. If by chance this is a similar story to yours, do your research and try them out. Email: DecodehackersATgmailDOTcom (TELGM: +1913843379).
