Justin likes tinkering with his Dad’s gadgets, so their bonding moments at home include sitting together with a gadget in their hands, Daddy with his Internet tablet and Justin with the iPod Touch, and Justin usually asking his Dad how something works or if he can download more games or just showing his Dad the games he’s playing.
Justin’s Dad is also the one who buys our son his toys, so going to toy stores and selecting which toys to buy is another way they spend time together. We also regularly eat out, and posing with his Dad for picture taking is one thing my son enjoys doing.
Justin’s Dad is not the type who will say “I love you” to his son often, but I know that he loves his son because he gives him what he wants when he can afford it and sends our son to a good school even when that meant incurring debt sometimes.
Justin also loves his Dad, and he shows that by calling his Dad in the office, writing his Dad letters and thank-you notes and just making his Dad notice him when his Dad arrives home from the office.
