In the US, today is Thanksgiving and so I thought it would be fun to show a bit of gratitude to each of my children on each of my blogs. Feel free to skip this post if you’re looking for Healthcare IT content on Thanksgiving. We’ll be back with our regularly scheduled content on Monday.
This probably says a lot about me, but I decided to put my oldest child on my oldest blog and so forth down the line based on age of the child and blog. With that alignment, HospitalEMRandEHR.com is host to my third child. Most of you don’t know, that my brother and I have casually been writing a daddy blog called Crash Dad where I refer to my kids as Crash Kids. So, on this blog I want to show some gratitude for Crash Kid #3.
Crash Kid #3 is an incredible child. In some ways, he’s the black sheep of the family since all of the others got the blonde hair and light skin that you’d expect from my children. Instead, Crash Kid #3 got all the Italian blood from my wife. Yes, that means he’s short and has incredible olive skin, dark hair, and a really amazing personality. He’s also well known for having incredible eyelashes. We actually have a contest on airplanes to see how many people will comment on them. They really are that long and dark and the envy of every woman he meets. He of course wants to shave them off since so many people comment on them. He’s an incredible boy that’s thoughtful, smart, and extremely caring.
I’m so grateful for this sweet boy. He comes home from school almost every day and stops by my home office to give me a hug and tell me that he missed me. There really is nothing sweeter than this in my life. It’s often nice to have that perspective during a challenging day.
Happy Thanksgiving! Who are you grateful for this day?
