Over at a Knight's Walk in the Kingdom, Theophilus has a great post on his growing awareness that as a father, he is also a role model:
I know my son is watching - he sees what I am doing - what I do, he also will do. I see it in how he plays, how he battles his temper, how he loves his mother, how he cares for his sister, his fearlessness in some things and his timidity in others. He insisted that my wife buy him a toy razor so he could shave. He occasionally will insist that he wears ties. He pounds away on the keyboard of a dead laptop.
