The Chronicles of Biscuit - "I Wanna Be Like Dad"

The Chronicles of Biscuit are stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

"I wanna be like Dad...except taller," quipped Biscuit recently.  Biscuit loves his dad.  He wants to imitate him.  He wants to be with him.  Of course Biscuit loves me, too, but he wants and needs that time with his dad - just man to man ( to boy, I should say!).
In the spring, while school was winding down, Biscuit would say he wanted to spend more time with his dad.  With our busy schedules of my husband's work, yard/garden/goat raising, and school activities, the father-son alone time with Biscuit just didn't work out.  In fact, it seemed like we were barely all home together at any time.
This summer has been great for Biscuit and his dad to have some special time together.  My husband coached Biscuit's baseball team, they walked over to different sections of the Ranger's Ballpark at two different games (Biscuit thought that was really special, though to us it seemed so simple!), and recently Biscuit drove the lawnmower and 4-wheeler with his dad.
There's something special about a father-son relationship.  Just think about the relationship of God and His Son, Jesus!
My favorite "daddy" poem is "Walk a Little Slower, Daddy".  I used it last year, but here's the link if you've never read it.  It's so sweet!

I found another poem to share with you about dads.  It's great, too!

To Any Daddy
There are little eyes upon you,
And they're watching day by day;
There are little ears that surely
Take in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager
To do everything you do.
There's a little boy who's dreaming
of the day he'll be like you!
You're that little fellow's idol,
You're the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind, about you
No suspicions e'er arise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say or do
He will say and do, in your way,
When he's all grown up like you.
There's a wide-eyed little fellow
Who believes you're always right;
His keen ears are always open
To catch your words, day or night.
You are setting an example,
Every day, in all you do,
For the little boy who's wanting
to grow up to be like you.
- Isabelle Tucker
And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Ephesians 6:4
