It seems like it has been ages since I’ve written anything on this dad blog about my oldest child, the Little Princess. She turned nine last June. Nine is halfway to eighteen. Her first life is half over. In another nine years, she’ll be leaving the nest for college and start her second life. I’ll be sad when she goes. Right now I’m just enjoying our time together — like a week ago when I asked her to sit in front of the camera so I can play around with the manual exposure setting on my Canon point and shoot camera. How can a dad not love a daughter like this?
