Star Trek meets Candyland

The other day my family was playing Candyland. Our daughter was getting into it so I started playing some classic Star Trek fight music.
The music ends just as she advances to GLORIOUS VICTORY!

... listen for her humming the tune as she CRUSHES her mother in the game.

heh heh :) I wonder how much chance she has of being under 50% geeky when she grows up?

Man, I remember when my daughter was that age. Now she's 20 and in the next room working on partial differential equations in advance of her finals. But every time I see her, I still see her at your daughter's age. When I dream at night, my wife is always the age she is now, my friends are the age they are now, but for some reason, my daughter is still like 5 or 6.

Please, absorb every single moment with her and put it in a place in your brain where only the most valuable treasures go. Not wanting to sound like every other middle-aged father, "they grow up so fast". I didn't do a lot of digital documentation of my girl's childhood. Some pictures, of course, and a few vids. Lots of audio tape of her singing along with my music and showing off her rapping chops. However you do it, grub, make sure you appreciate every minute. I'm sure I don't need to tell you this, but seeing your video brought back a flood of memories.

Not to worry, I love this stage of her life; warts and all. :)

We started a family a bit late (I'll be 45 on xmas eve) and my daughter is ~4.5

It's a good thing we waited, too, I was an asshole when I was younger. I'm much more mellow now :)

I can relate. But really, nobody's ever really completely ready for kids. They show up one day and you either become a dad or you don't. Life changes in a way for which you cannot prepare.

Enjoy the holidays, grub.
