Update from the President and CEO of Top Class Actions
My girls continue to grow and it’s amazing how tall they’re getting. No surprise, since I’m a big guy, but still amazing. Just like they’re getting better and better every day as a father I have to continue to improve. I have to remember to appreciate every moment with my girls. They’re growing so fast that soon they won’t want me to carry them to bed or lift them up to the sky when I pick them up from school. I started thinking about this last week when Sydney, my 5.5 year old, asked me to carry her back upstairs to her room for bed. I’d already done it once, and I was tired after a long day, so I told her “no honey, not again, I’m wiped out!” She was only halfway up the stairs when I started to feel guilty so I rectified the situation by chasing her upstairs as the tickle monster. That’s always a hit!
After Sydney was back in bed I kept thinking about it and now I’m making it a point to always pick them up, hug them or carry them when asked. My guess is I only have 4 or 5 years left before they’re “too big” or “mature” for it. I’ve got to soak it all in while I can (and as long as my back can handle it!)
