Seoul Olympic Opening Ceremony

It’s early Sat morning and I find myself with my 4 year old son. Weekends are not for resting when you’re a dad. I want more sleep, but I know that I only have a few more years of this with my son. I play a little hide and seek. We do some coloring. I feed him some lucky charms. We do a bit of cosplay power rangers style (i’m green ranger and my son, yellow). Only 1 hour has passed.

I let my wife sleep in with our daughter.

Son wants some jellybeans. I say no.

And I turn to youtube. But I feel guilty so I watch youtube with him. I turn on the Seoul Olympic Opening Ceremony for him. I told him I’ll show him some cool Taekwondo.

I was like 8 years old during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. To be honest, I didn’t care about it much back then. But I do remember the opening ceremony. Looking back now, as an adult, as a dad, as a startup founder in Seoul, It’s amazing. It’s amazing to see how much this country has grown. It’s amazing that I’m back here. It seems like so long ago. I started to cry a bit. Watching this low def youtube video.

I don’t know why.
