Better than me

When I was little my dad used to tell me that I would be a better person than him.  He said that kids are always better than their parents.  My juvenile mind could not comprehend the idea that I would be BETTER than my dad!  The great, amazing, perfect dad that he is! 

And then it happened, I started my own brood and I began to understand...
Somehow mine have been made better than me already.  What a relief! 

 It was Isla's turn to give a talk a few weeks ago.  She wanted to write it all by herself.  Proving my dad right (again) that your kids will just be better than you, here's a copy of her talk.    

And by the way, Dad, Happy Birthday to the best dad a girl could ever have!  I love you!
