Last day of the year, last entry for the year, why not. This year we brought another life into the world. To be honest, it’s easy. Most anyone can do it. And in this country, most people do. What’s hard is raising your children to be… I don’t know. And I suppose that’s where the problem lies.

Battleground Starbucks

So the wife and I took our 2 year old son out with us tonight to High Street in the Fort. We try to do things with him where it’s just us, without his brother. We want to make sure that even though his newborn brother is getting a lot of attention these days, he’s still a priority in this family. I actually really enjoy these times with him. There are definitely times when I want to be selfish and have him all to myself. I’m sure he feels the same way about sharing his parents with his new brother. So it works out.

Give & Take

You know what happens when you get married? You have less sex. You’d think the opposite were true but past the honeymoon phase, you both begin to form a routine of work, house chores, pet chores (we’re dog people), grocery chores, laundry chores, cooking chores, movie, dinner, dinner with friends, etc. But it’s mostly chores. Stuff you have to do to keep life moving. Moving where? I don’t know. It’s moot at this point isn’t it? We’re here. We’re married. Let’s get on with it.

Press Start

There’s a first time for everything. Except when it’s your second time.

I have a three week-old baby. He’s my second-born, my first-born just turned two. I haven’t fully wrapped my brain around being a dad and what that means and already the hand-me-downs are well, being handed down. We’re looking into contraception immediately.
