Holding my son's hand - our days are numbered... #BritishDadStuff
(source: us in 2012...)
You know you're a Great British Dad...
...when you know deep down that your hand-holding days are numbered.
I love holding my 7 year old son's hand.
Because I know that it is going to end very very soon.
I can still lift him onto my shoulders.
So I know that it is going to end very very soon.
But it's the holding hands that I am going to miss.
He does it so unselfconsciously.
And it's for safety.
Soon he won't need that.
And he'll be away in the world.
But for now, I can still hold his hand.
And put him on my head.
He says I should workout more, and eat less chocolate - so that I can still hoist him up.
I don't know which will come first - my inability to lift him up, or him not needing to go on my shoulders.
But it's the holding hands that I think I'm going to miss the most.
