Son of Zeus

In the months leading up to my son's birth, I outlined for myself what kind of dad I was going to be.  I had decided that I would be a nice combination of "cool" and "strong draconian disciplinarian", that I would rule with a mighty but righteous hand, like a much younger version of Zeus.

Then I found out he could make this face at will.

Soon after, I realized that part of being a good father means finding the strength to say "No" even when you really, really, really want to say "Yes".

And for those of you who might be curious, he was crying because he wanted the camera.  I took the picture and then gave him the camera.  I told you I'd be righteous.
