You know, as I take these trips and interact with my three Sweetie Pies, I recognize the enormous level of responsibility I have to fashion their lives and their futures. Jordan and Jared watch me like hawks. No matter what I say, at any particular time, they are watching what I do. I give them the lessons that every Dad gives, but when it’s all said and done, what they are really looking for is how I live my life. And they are enormously perceptive in seeing what really matters to me inside and underneath what I represent with my words.
