The events that have transpired over the past 14 years have been a rollercoaster - a few book's worth of achievements and failures both personal and professional - but none more rewarding than the journey that began when we became parents for the first time. I still can't believe it's been four years already... or that we liked it so much that we went back for a second round.
While in retrospect I wish that I'd started this site right when Addie was born, I think the time has come to make up for not becoming a "Dad Blogger" right out-of-the-gate... and share with you my first-ever diaper change:
I never really expected to become a Father, but as I've said before, becoming an at-home Dad is the best job I've ever had. 14 years ago we were two... 4 years ago, 3... and now we're a complete family of four and the kids are already growing up.
It's just after 1am as I type this, and I've just finished wrapping a few gifts for the munchkin. Later today, I'll be taking Addie to the movies for the first-time-ever, and then we'll have some family time with presents and cake (I picked up a Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Cake last night). It'll be a low-key celebration with the four of us, but this Saturday we'll be having a proper party. It's a special one this year (HELLO KITTY is the theme), and I'll be blogging that, too. A Birthday Party/Annual Summer Gathering, let's just say that The Rock Father has some tricks up his sleeve that should bring out a lot of smiles for the neighborhood kids this weekend.
Smiles like my family gives me.
Happy Birthday. Happy Anniversary.
