So I came up with the idea for this blog back when this true adventure began. Hard to believe that was five years ago this past April and the second installment to the adventure turned 3 this past Tuesday and we’ll be celebrating this weekend with friends and family.
There are so many events to catch up on, the least of which would most certainly NOT be the birth we are to celebrate in the morning. I’m sure I’ll get to the adventures of that evening another time. Tonight’s little dose of reality was just how small the window of opportunity for enjoying the true admiration of our children truly is. I actually got to spend some quality with the older of our two little girls. When she was the only other occupant of the house besides my wife and I used to happen all the time. She was the center of our world and I can truly see now how we took it for granted that that would never change.
When I look back on it all, there were only a handful of experiences….food shopping, trips to the mall, walks around the neighborhood etc that we got to spend exclusively with our only child. Well tonight made me appreciate that time and I look forward to getting some alone time with her again soon. All it was was a trip for a surprise for her sister tomorrow and some last minute food shopping for the party but it was also the first time in forever that I got to spend with her without having her younger sister with us and of course vying for my attention.
It was also powerful enough to get me to get my butt in gear and write my first actual post for this blog. It most certainly will not be my last and I look forward to filling everyone in on adventures from the past five years as well as sharing new adventures as they crop op!
Happy Michael!? The true adventures have begun. Thank you for always pushing me to get this started.
