Last Year of the Single Digits

On this date 9 years ago Big Z came kicking and screaming into this world, and I was dragged kicking and screaming into fatherhood. And it just hit me today that this will be the last year that I have 2 kids under double digit numbers. Once you start into the double digits the changes will start happening at lightning speed. And it was because of these impending changes that I started to think of all of the changes in myself and things that I have learned over the last 9 years. And since I watch my wife day in and day out compulsively make lists, I thought I would take a crack at list making myself.

9 Years Of Changes In Me & My Life

-Changing poopy diapers no longer makes me want to vomit

-Learned that mac and cheese IS a main course

-I have gained the patience to spend 3 hours looking for an action figure's tiny, tiny gun

-Learning all of names of Ben 10's aliens and their powers is mandatory as the father of boys

-Scooby Doo is still cool

-Diaper Genie is not a magical creature that grants wishes

-It is possible to sleep with a tiny cold foot on your neck

-Dinosaurs are not just extinct creatures, they are a way of life

-Little boys play with their weenies a lot (I might have already known that)

-Hearing "I wuv you Daddy" is the sweetest thing you can ever hear

So thank you Big Z and Little P for an educational 9 years. Lets hope the next 9 years don't go that fast. Daddy wuvs you too.
