Today is the 26th birthday of son Number 3, Blake, aka Blake “The Man” Mitchell, as he is known by the fans of High Risk Professional Wrestling. Not that I am one to talk but Blake’s lifestyle is not a conventional one, no 9-5 job, no home of his own, and currently single. What Blake does have is a most beautiful 5-year-old daughter Jade, lots of drive and ambition, and he is a wonderful entertainer.
As a father I would love nothing more than to see Blake settle down to a “normal” job, buy a house, get married maybe and expand his family. Like all parents however our children’s dreams and our dreams for our children are not always in sync.
I do not pretend to understand every decision that Blake makes, nor do I agree with every decision. Likewise I am sure that Blake has sometimes wondered what Dad is thinking, we are all different, that is what makes a family.
What I can say is that I am very proud of Blake, he is somewhat of an entrepreneur, and while he often struggles financially, he has still achieved much during his life, and I am sure there is still much to more to come. He has the respect of his peers, and the undying love of his father, I would not swap him for the world. A bit mushy I know, but if I can’t get mushy on your birthday when can I.
Maybe one day son our dreams will be in sync, all I really want is for you to be self-sufficient, and above all else to be happy. Happy Birthday Son.
