MY ANGEL Celebrating My Favorite Girl

April is one of my favorite months of the year because of one very special day: Tax Day. I’m kidding! I love this month because my daughter’s birthday is in April. Many of my clients have worked with me since before Isabella was born. So with her fifth birthday coming soon, I thought I’d share with everyone an update on how she’s doing. First of all, she’s growing like a weed. Every day, I have to blink and try to figure out how she got so tall all of a sudden. I remember the moment I held her for the first time. It took a little bit of effort to bring Isabella into the world, and before she came, I was excited, but a little scared. I hadn’t been around children much before that. Though Danielle and I were ready to be parents, part of me wondered if I was really up for the challenge. When she did arrive,

we were very blessed. Everything went smoothly, and Isabella came into the world healthy with 10 fingers, 10 toes, and all of my heart. The first time I held her, it felt like the most natural thing in the world. A lot has changed since I cradled her in my arms in the hospital. Now, she’s turning 5, her favorite color is blue, she loves getting new clothes from her Aunt Neal, and she loves spending time with her grandmother. Plus, she’s in preschool, so it’s no surprise that she loves My Little Pony. In fact, I took her to see “My Little Pony: The Movie” a few months ago. It was the first movie she and I had seen together in the theater, and I’m happy to report I was not the dad who fell asleep and started snoring loudly. Isabella is growing up so fast, and I don’t want to sleep through any of our moments together. After this summer, she’ll be attending the big kids’ school, aka kindergarten, at the local elementary school. I guess she’s going to be a big kid herself pretty soon. My wife and I are trying to teach her all the important lessons about life, and we have given her age-appropriate chores so she can start to learn responsibility. Taking care of her new white Siamese kitten, Ringo, is a big responsibility she was excited to have.

I’m also making it a point to teach Isabella about money. At 5, she already has a savings account — in the form of a piggy bank. Isabella is learning about the importance of saving, and she happily collects every bit of change she finds. When the piggy bank becomes heavy, we take it to the VyStar machine and have all the coins converted into cash. It’s not exactly managing stocks, but it’s a good start, and I’m proud of her. Who knows? Maybe one day Isabella will be working in the office with me! I am blown away by how blessed I am to have such a wonderful daughter. She’s growing up fast. The future might be scary, but I’m proud I get to be her dad, protecting her and showing her the way.
