Insurance Policy

1. Purchase this item.

2. Photograph male child wearing item.

3. Wait fifteen years.

4. Threaten to upload photographs to child's MySpace profile if he doesn't stay in line.

Hmmm... could be a worthwhile investment.

A Note on Fatherhood

I finally got Danielle to go to bed without taking Ethan along. She doesn't let me get up at night for Ethan. She wants me to rest so I can work. But she's doing more work every day than I am. I don't want to see her get frazzled. She needs her rest more than I do.

So tonight I've decided to keep Ethan upstairs with me all night, and I'll sleep as much as I can on the couch. It's hard for me to get to sleep between feedings and changings, but that just means I'll get that much more quality father/son time :)

With any luck, Danielle will sleep through the night, wake up refreshed, and she'll get to enjoy a happy day with our boy.

I love being a dad!
