Fatherhood And Marriage - A Little Girl's Perspective

Last week while I was in the car with my daughter (as these things typically happen while we are in the car together), she says:

"In order for a man to be a dad he has to be married."

I appreciated her sentiment but decided to ask why. Her answer was: "A man has to find a woman with kids and marry her in order to be a dad."

I chuckled a bit, turned the rear view mirror to face her and asked her how is it that she looks just like me. She shrugged her shoulders with an innocence that made me bubble over with a love for her that is indescribable and immeasurable.

It's only a matter of time before a real conversation that truthfully addresses her observations will need to be had.
