Sending a handwritten letter is becoming such an anomaly. It's disappearing. My mom is the only one who still writes me letters. And there's something visceral about opening a letter - I see her on the page. I see her in her handwriting.
Children are very smart, in their own stupid way. A child's brain is like a sponge, and you know how smart sponges are.
My job doesn't define my kids in any way. When we go to places, it's about them and it's about us as a family. I think they're proud of me, but I'm just Dad.
You're doing your kids a disservice if they do get everything they want because that's not the way life's going to go, and I think kids have to have some reality.
