Memorable every day moments

I was riding public transport (i.e. the bus) a few years ago on the commute home, and I was people watching. I noticed in front of me an African American dad and his baby, maybe around 5 or 6 months old sitting in his lap cooing, doing that cute stuff babies do. The guy in the seats in front of the dad, a Hasidic Jew, had turned around and was smiling and playing and interacting with the baby and all three of them were smiling. I remember this vividly, the scene struck me, I guess. I doubt they even saw me, yet I feel privileged to have seen this. I can still remember it well. It was a very human scene.

What do you remember vividly? Maybe something mundane that struck you as memorable that you saw just going about your daily business?

The moments I spend with my family are the most precious of time everyday.

This morning, I awoke to find that my 7 year old had crawled into bed with me. I snuggled him up close and let him wake up slowly in my arms. Then his dog came and started licking his face and we had this great conversation about boys and dogs.

My most vivid memory as a father is that first day that we brought Wade home from teh hospital. Martha was in our bedroom recuperating, and I lay on the couch, with tiny, week old Wade asleep on my chest. I will take that memory to my grave, it still seems like it was just yesterday.

With Ryan, we had to stay in the hospital a bit longer, as he had a bit of rough start. I remember just sitting in the chair with him, next to Martha's bed, just looking at my tiny little boy. Getting to introduce him to his older brother was very special as well.

I am getting a bit verklempt here, so I will give you a topic to discuss.

Do real men cry?

Yeah, I hear ya there. Conversations w/ my eldest (2) consist of robots/Star Wars/Wall E and more robots, in that order. Oh, sometimes he changes it up and tosses in stuff about the Mars Rover, Aibo, Asimo.
