“Oh Crap, He’s a Better Parent”—A Father’s Day Story

Sunday, June 15th, 2008

By Larry Smith

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads. Lynn Fox sends her husband Mike this Father’s Day gift, a beautiful essay she’s written our My Life So Far story project, SMITH’s home for readers’ memoirs-in-progress or personal essays. I can’t imagine a better tribute to the father of one’s children than “Oh Crap, He’s a Better Parent.” You sound like a good man, Mr. Fox.
