Let’s go.

I'm a Detroiter who happens to enjoy writing, national parks, orange juice, the performing arts, and fanciful socks. More than anything though, I aspire to be a good husband, father, and citizen.

Finding Nemo, Role Reversal

I went for a run his afternoon. And when I came back, Robyn, Bo, and Riley had Finding Nemo on. It was right at the jellyfish scene as I entered the family room. 

About two minutes ago, right when the pelican tells Nemo how his dad is crossing the ocean to find him, it hit me.

I used to watch this movie from Nemo’s perspective. Now, I can’t help but watching it from his father’s. The roles have reversed, and it’s honestly a very different movie to watch this way. The shape of a father’s heart is different than a son’s.

I guess that’s growing up.
