Being Around as an Older Dad

Recently, I had a little bit of a health scare when I went for a check-up at my doctor's. I'll be 50 later this year, so I wanted to see how I was doing as I approach that milestone. And it wasn't good. Since then, I've taken steps to improve my lifestyle, habits, and more. As a dad to two young kids, I realized I wasn't being fair to them, as I put myself and my own "entertainment" ahead of their right to have a dad grow with them. In episode 7 of Life Through a Dram, I talk about that realization, and how we all need to take more responsibility when it comes to those around us, and the role we play in their lives.
