You have to see this girl’s smile, but it’s the sound of her laughter that will melt your heart.
Watching this video I can’t help but think of car rides with my own daughter. You see I’ve always enjoyed my driving time as a solitary place where I could fly through a street (provided it was empty of course), play music I loved and feel free. And I thought I knew what joy was as I did those things.
The thing is, it wasn’t till after I became a dad, till after I took on the responsibilities and constant ‘lil co-pilot sitting near, that I ever experienced something like this. To know what it was like to open up my secret lil getaway, aka my drive time, to another person who could share its pleasure so wholeheartedly. To be able to feel the joy of your child and share their unbridled excitement for a moment, these are the indulgences that you carry forever. Watching this video over and over I can’t help but smile and know that I’m glad that though my co-pilot is no longer little we still share the love of tunes, clear skies and open roads to this day.
