The tradition of handing out cigars at a birth has been part of our culture since the 18th Century. The less frequently acknowledged tradition of dad keeping the cigar box and filling it with his life’s mementos most assuredly soon followed.
I have a cigar box full of my “treasures” on my dresser; pictures and videos when my children were very young, of our adventures together like backpacking when they were three, my Pee Wee soccer teams (I knew nothing about soccer), and my favorites: their handwritten notes after they learned to write.
Every time I open it, I get a burst of my children’s vibes right into my heart. Pure pride and joy. You will have to trust me on this; your treasures, like good whisky, will keep getting better with time.
May your treasure chest be overflowing in the years to come.
Welcome to fatherhood!
