Coming home from work and having your children say "Hi Daddy!" as they run up to hug you and then say "I love you, Daddy."

I don't know if there is a better feeling than that. If there is, I haven't experienced it.

Overhearing your teenage child brag about something you do. (OK, it's always my cooking, but he does brag about it!)
