A Little Face Time

February 7, 2014 | By Brent Almond | MAKING MEMORIES

It’s hard to believe a week ago I was in New Orleans beginning an intensive three days of networking with other dads, talking about the role of dads, learning how to be a better dad and getting some face time with my online dad pals. But now I’m back to life, back to reality. And putting all these things that I learned into practice. The hard part.

Not so hard? Having breakfast the first morning back with my reason for being a dad. Sitting there listening to him, watching him, just enjoying the moment and basking in his early morning scruffiness. Some face time, if you will. If anything, my weekend away taught me anew how to be present with my son.

Yes, I realize for “just being present” I sure took a lot of photos; but as you can see, he didn’t really notice until several shots in.


The “Just-woke-up-sleeping-on-my-head-where-am-I-I-want-food” Face



The “Telling-Daddy-something-really-important” Face. Like about Batman. Or pooping.



The “I-see-you’re-taking-my-photo-so-I’m-opening-my-eyes-as-wide-as-my-hair-is-high” Face



The “adorkable-ham” Face

So good to be home.

    Oh my. That kid is off the charts cute. Love the southern bang action he’s got going on. Looks like my senior portrait.
