On Raising a Teenaged Daughter
The most interesting thing about having a teenage daughter is teaching her all the things I never had a chance to learn as a teen. My daughter, Indigo, loves wearing oxford shoes. She has a few colors and she wears one of the pairs every day. In order to keep the shoes looking nice, I had to explain to Indigo about getting taps placed on her shoes because she started to wear down the heel. Then, I had to teach her how to shine her shoes. I wish someone had done the same for me when I was young, but I had to learn in the Navy. Watching Indigo buff and shine her shoes brings the biggest smile to my face.
