Being the Hero…

I don’t remember where I read it (it was before everything was on my Kindle), but the author said that one of the biggest motivators for boys and men is that we all want to be viewed as “heroes.”

Her point (I think it was a her) was: You are a hero already…to your kids.

In the parent-teacher conference the other week, Paco’s teacher said that to me exactly.

How he recites my travel itinerary, recounts my adventures, and talks about what we do together.

It was a powerful, humbling moment.
