Baby Bump???? YUP

 

There’s something alive in my wife’s belly, and I put it there!

 

WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!! WhooHoo

 

Now that the obligatory celebration is out of the way, I can return to being scared totally shitless. I know I know, we’ve been down this road before, we’re already raising two boys.  But who says that has to stop my worrying? Have you had a child before? Do you know what those little critters are like the first few months of their lives? I’ve survived infancy once before, last time I checked, people who walk away from natural disasters aren’t in a huge rush to relive the thrill.

The Number 25

Happy BIrthday

The number 25 is significant in our society; there are many things that depend on the number 25 for survival.  Gumball machines for instance, could you imagine how much revenue they would lose if that candy cost 26 cents?  I mean who wants to dig for a quarter AND a penny while being hounded by a rowdy kid?  And what if that silly “25 random things about me” list only had 24 things on it?  Could you really go on another day without knowing that last thing about some person you barely knew in high school, but are now internet BFFs with? Of course you couldn’t, because the number 25 makes you whole, it warms that special place in your heart like no other number could do.  That’s why when my wife turned a quarter of a century old, I had to put my best foot forward and ensure we celebrated in style.

When Did Suburbia Stop Being Safe?

Let me start off this post by saying I am not naive, I understand how the world works, I’m totally aware that nowhere on this earth is completely safe.  Hell, when I was a kid, my friends and I used to travel specifically to the suburbs for easy pickings of some unguarded BMX bikes.  Let’s face it, when you live in a certain environment, specific precautions that are routinely a part of people’s lives are lost on you.  When I was a kid, I ensured my bike was safe and secure in our garage at all times because the opportunity for it to grow legs and simply walk away was so high.  My suburban colleagues didn’t necessarily have that constant threat as a reminder, so they were a bit more careless with their items, which in turn caused them to grow legs and walk away.  Now, nearly 20 years later, I am in Suburbia and have been very careless with my possessions. Although, now we aren’t merely discussing BMX bikes anymore; the possessions that I speak of today are my children.
