Movie Quotes – Day 38

Let us pretend that you are a loving daughter, and I am a good father. — Gladiator

Being a father has been the scariest thing I’ve ever done. I’ve been doing it for over two decades, and for a big chunk of that time, I sucked at it. It took living without my kids for several months for me to figure out that I was a selfish twit, and that I needed to figure out what was really important. Luckily for me, I was able to get a job within a few hours of Little Bear and Girlie Bear, which allowed me to reconnect and relearn how to be a parent. It’s a chance I didn’t really deserve, but it’s one for which I am eternally grateful.
