Some of my former students tell me that having a kid has made me kinder. Logan calls me "soft" and keeps waiting to catch me talking in high pitched, kid-speak. Nora calls me "Grandpa Doug". Of course neither of them are correct, but putting that photo up there will give them a couple of months worth of new material. You're welcome.
That's my mom and my kid as seen from the door of the metal shop a few weeks ago.
