My wife and I just got back from the store where we bought some ice cream for a treat for the kids. We also rented a movie (Nancy Drew) for them to watch, but we have a few things we need to do first before we wanted to let the kids start the movie. (Okay, I'll be honest, we really want to watch it, too.) So, we've asked them to busy themselves doing something else. What are they doing? All three of them, our almost-9-year-old, our almost-7-year-old, and our just-3-year-old are sitting in the family room on the couch reading/looking at books. I'm just shaking my head here in amazement -- these kids are astounding!
I'm a space nerd, a family man, a middle of right-wing conservative, a church-goer, an enthusiastic guy, and a sufferer of occasional lower back pain. I'm fairly young with three wonderful children. Life is great, but far too short for all the things I want to do!
