Happy Father’s Day to all the men who take care and are active in the lives of their kids and wards. You are super heroes.

Toddlers are many wonderful things. If you ask many parents to describe theirs in 3 words, you’ll get all kind of amazing lists. One word that may feature on many lists is ‘adorable’. Their tiny little gestures and innocence many times make you day.

Here are the 17 things Jason Good will miss when his kid is older: 

  1. How much he wants me around.
  2. How he always skips the number four when counting to ten.
  3. That he thinks there are a million pennies in a dollar.
  4. The way he pronounces S from the back of his throat.
  5. How he takes his shirt off by sticking his arms through the neck hole.
  6. That he doesn’t know when to end a hug.
  7. That we do three kinds of kisses: “gentle,” “wet,” and “dry.” If I could keep only one, it would be “gentle.”
  8. That he can’t say the alphabet without singing it.
  9. How uncomplicated he is.
  10. That he hides his shoes inside of mine.
  11. His inability to lie.
  12. The look on his face when he tries to.
  13. The year he said “I do!” instead of “Yes.”
  14. How small he looks on the sofa.
  15. That he eats a hot dog like corn on the cob.
  16. His complete lack of self-consciousness.
  17. That he made up my new favorite word, whobody. “Whobody can race to the kitchen first?!”
