Remembering a moment I had this past Friday when I was driving in the car and it it me that, no matter what I will love these kids. We had just finished eating at a restaurant and even though our 5 year old was not on his best behavior (but not his worst by far) I decided I would stop to get ice cream.
Despite recent events, there is nothing that will keep me from stopping my son from pursuing his hopes and dreams.
Just as quickly had our ordinary labor and delivery turned, my plans changed. My wife was in no state to take care of our newborn, and as much as I knew that the nurses in the nursery would have taken excellent care of him, I didn’t want to be that dad who just leaves him with them. I knew that my night was just getting started.
We grill just about everything known to man. Personally, I have grilled vegetables, watermelons, a rotisserie chicken, a whole turkey, smoked salmon, and even most recently bananas. Yes you hear me right… bananas. I told you we try everything. Out of everything that I have grilled, there is one thing I had not even thought about grilling… a pizza.
Son, you are going to make an incredible big brother. I have no doubt even though in the beginning things might not feel like it.
I’ve almost forgotten what alone time is. I mean, I feel like I can’t watch TV without interruption, without someone wanting me to play with them or to go outside… let alone go to the bathroom alone… not giving me a chance to break a new high score on Angry Birds.
There I was, standing in front of a television camera, with nothing to say, so I talk about the one thing that I enjoy the most during my day.
