This is admittedly weird: I feel actual guilt over the fact that I can’t draw my son a daily picture for his lunch. What?
I totally do. But I’m here to say that I’m becoming okay with it. And if you’re struggling with a similar emotion, I want you to feel okay and that your ability as a dad isn’t being judged because you aren’t drawing Superman for your kid every day.
Inevitably, we all find something to share with our kids. Right? I mean, we don’t just put our kids out on the street as babies and say “well kid, go find some interests.” For some dads, they share sports. For others, it’s video games. For others, it’s comics. Art. Movies. Working on cars. Fishing. You get the idea.
For Brent Almond, his love of superheroes and art created a – dare I say – adorbz habit of drawing “super lunch notes” for his son.
