When a person is feeling/acting the most unlovable is Best buckin’ Dad ever shirt. The year the tradition started, I felt like I was failing miserably in all areas of my life. But I could make a mean batch of muffins, and my kids loved to scoot stools up to the counter and help, so that’s what we did. On that particular day, I suggested we make Valentine bags for the trash collectors. My kids were all in. I broke down the task into parts that even little hands covered with Sharpie could do. I’ll never forget the morning we left those colorful bags of muffins and trail mix on the trashcans in front of our house. When we heard the trash truck coming, my kids and I scrambled to the upstairs window and watched.

Engrained in my mind is the way the Best buckin’ Dad ever shirt if those colorful packages were for him. And when he decided they were, he smiled to himself in a way that brought tears to my weary eyes. The only thing more touching was the expression on my children’s faces: Look what we can do, their faces said with delight, Just look at what we can do. For that brief moment in time, everything was right in my hot-mess of a world. Even though I’d gotten worked up over accidental spills, micro-managed more than necessary, and slept in my clothes, I’d carried out a love mission to touch someone’s heart and showed my kids that they could too. I decided I wasn’t failing so badly after all, and that realization lifted me from despair.
