Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
My daddy reads a lot. I think that’s why sometimes I see words fall out of his ears. he he he.
He always has a story or something he read/learned to share with me. I like that about my daddy.
Daddy said he read in a book about reasons why people regret.
What is Regret?
Regret – I think that means people are sorry for the way things happened or didn’t happen when they could have done something different.
I have some advice for my daddy. Honestly, he doesn’t really need it. But just in case.
Daddy, please don’t regret not spending enough time with me. I know you have to go to work sometimes. I am not sure why. I think it has to do with money and buying stuff and such. You have a card in your wallet. I saw it. If you use that then you don’t have to pay for anything, right? Why not just use that card all the time?
Daddy loves to play with me. And he almost never says, “No.” But sometimes he does. And I don’t like that part.

Hard Decisions for Daddy
How do daddies decide when to say, ‘no’ and when to say, ‘yes’ to playing? That’s a mystery to me right now.
I do know this, whey I grow up I never want to regret not spending enough time with my daddy.
Daddy? How about you spend more time with me?
