I wrapped presents for my daughter today. I think I wrapped eight presents, maybe nine. I wish we would buy more presents for her. I want to give her a million presents. Nothing makes me happier than watching her eyes sparkle when opening gifts.

My wife reminds me that Angie doesn’t even play with half the toys we buy. And that growing up she had nothing and she was happy. That spending time together as a family is a better gift. I grew up having nothing, and I hated it. I don’t even want to give my daughter the choice.
