Being included

Dad (checking Hayden's written piano homework): "Okay, let's see...A, A, C, E, B, B, D. Good job buddy, those are all correct!"

Hayden: "Thanks Dad."

Landon (3, who had been doing his own "homework" nearby): "Dad, you need to check mine too."

Dad (looking carefully at the scrawled upon piece of paper): "Okay Landon, let's see...scribble, scribble, line...hmmm...circle, dot, circle, line. Good job buddy, they are all correct!

Landon (walking away, several feet taller): "Thanks Dad."

Isn't it amazing how a few words from Dad can make a kid proud?!

Good job, Dad!
