Fatherhood - Day 166

Today as Mommy was walking out the door on her way to work she told Daddy to clean Macias' left eye, which was pretty goopy. Well Daddy and Macias got to playing and were having such a good time that Daddy forgot what Mommy told him. So Macias went down for his nap, and Daddy drove him to day care. When he got there and Macias woke up, he could only open one eye as the other one had completely crusted over. Well, Daddy felt really terrible that he forgot to clean Macias' left eye because Macias looked so sad only being able to open his right eye. After getting him out of his car seat he asked Macias' teacher for a warm cloth. Even though his teacher said she would do it, Daddy still felt like crap so he insisted on cleaning Macias' left eye himself. So Daddy put Macias in his crib and cleaned out his left eye...when Macias finally opened his left eye for the first time in more than an hour, the first thing his left eye saw was Daddy - and he gave Daddy the biggest smile he had ever given him. Daddy was so happy that he picked up Macias and they played together right in the middle of his classroom and Daddy was 15 minutes late to work.

And Daddy didn't care one bit.
