What's the most significant lesson dad taught you?
My dad has given me a lot of great advice, including the go-to dad staples of "don't count your chickens before they hatch," "don't put all your eggs into one basket," and "don't sweat the small stuff." But the best advice my dad ever gave me was when I had my daughter, Kaya (who is pictured with him here). He told me to cherish each stage and each age, and don't rush it. Don't be in a rush for the end of the day or end of the week or end of the year. Because kids grow up so fast, and you'll miss it if you blink. If you're always in a hurry to get to the next stop, you'll miss the journey. And now that she is turning 5 soon and starting kindergarten in the fall, I think that's the greatest advice he's ever given me, because he was right (as always). I try not to rush anything about life any more, because I want to enjoy each day and each moment with my little girl before she grows up, and it seems like she grows up a little bit every single day.
