Perhaps my finest moment as a father came when I taught the kids to yell, "Behold!" when they saw Christmas lights.
Yes, I was not Amy's favorite person, but sometimes you do what you have to do.
And yes, I made the mistake of driving the kids around a well-lit neighborhood and got a taste of Amy's personal unfortunateness.
But nothing could prepare me for the sheer joy of taking the kids to the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. It turns out they have a lot of lights there. A LOT.
Within 10 minutes the kids lost their voices so it wasn't that bad. Or maybe I just couldn't hear after that. It's just as well. It lets me hear the voices in my head more clearly.
