Me: “Hey buddy, did you have a good day?”
Me: “Cool. You going to play flag football this year?”
Me (thinking no more yes/no questions for this kid): “Who’s picking you up today?”
Boy: “My mom.”
Me: “You’re lucky to have a good mom to come and pick you up. Does your dad ever pick you up?”
Boy: “I don’t have a dad anymore. He left.”
Me: “I am so sorry.”
Boy (looking at the ground now): “Me too.”
And my heart officially broke right there!
Dads, please stay part of your kids lives. Please be a dad!
