Father at 49. \"Dad\" at 53.

Had another one of those damn birthdays on Monday, Memorial Day. --- I was awaken by my son with a fist-full of balloons yelling \"Wake-up Dad.\" -- It was the first time he had called me \"dad.\" For a birthday present I asked him to keep calling me \"daddy.\" --- Then we played with all the Hot Wheels cars he had gotten for my birthday.
