Nailed it.

When I arrived home tonight, after a particularly long day, Lukas came running from the kitchen and jumped into my arms, giving me a huge hug and a kiss.  I instantly felt better.  Instantly!  It was exactly what I needed after being at work for 12 hours.

Honestly, it has been difficult for me to even think about posting here recently for various reasons.  But during those times when life's treadmill becomes a bit overwhelming and I've had long, exhausting, and mentally draining days (like today for instance), there is one thing above all that lifts my spirits.

I saw the following video posted over at How to Be a Dad tonight and knew instantly that I had to share it.  It inspired me to break out of the posting doldrums.  Please take a minute of your busy day to give it a view.  You'll be happy you did.

It pretty much nails what it feels like to be a dad.

THAT is adorable! (Also...really loved the "I am your father" tie in! Coincidental but perfect!)

Great video, and you're right, Nailed it.
