This sucked...

This last week started off with a crash... Literally. Not what I expected, nor what I needed. Two bumps, two bruises, a scuff and a cut later has taught me a few things. Everybody was fine and I wasn't the only one to learn a lesson. The at fault driver I'm hoping learned to look both ways for emergency vehicles. What I learned was:

#1 wear a seatbelt... Always
#2 watch your speed
#3 count your blessings... Everyday

The joys of fatherhood thus far...

So my baby girl was born just over two months ago and since that time it has been a whirlwind of an adventure. You know how time is fleeting already? Well it goes into warp speed once a kid shows up in your life.

True there have been some sleepless nights but looking back now at just two months its amazing how those "hard" nights seem to be something of a distant past. Last night the bambino slept for seven and a half glorious hours!

Of all the unsolicited and unwanted advice that people so freely give, I have found that trusting your gut or in my case listening to the wife has been far more helpful than all that free advice. Of course a phone call to either mom goes a long way.

To me the best part of being a dad is seeing my baby recognize me and give a big ole toothless grin. I can't wait to see what's in store for our life these next 18+ years.

I'm back

After a five month break which included several fishing trips, drinks with friends and the birth of my beautiful daughter I decided to start writing again. I hope you enjoy my upcoming blog entries
