    Congratulations, Kris. I walked into fatherhood when I met my wife in October 1997, her son was 3 years old. I taught him to play basketball when he was 4; he’s thanked me for not letting him quit back then when he was frustrated, he plays for city leagues now. I was there when he drank 1/2 a bottle of cough medicine while we were away and puked all night (though I had to get up at 3:30 am to go to work), and just recently “chaperoned” him on what he will one day call his first date - - - hey, 11-year olds can’t be left alone, not even for two hours! When he has the opportunity to start weightlifting, I’m sure he’ll ask me and I’ll be there. This is a tough, sometimes frustrating, but ultimately rewarding job: father, coach, doctor, mentor, friend. And BTW, cute pic!!!

    i have a 2 year old daughter… i remember every detail of her birth. I still wear the shirt that I wore during her delivery on her birthdays…. although it’s very tight now.

    Thanks guys! Life is good. The young feller has his dad’s knack for sleeping and sleep deprivation appears to be a thing of the past (the two first days were a wholly different story, but then again, any lad can be a little upset by being thrown out into this cold world of ours, that although spacious, is not the epitome of comfort). One of these days, I’ll probably walk over to the nearest gym and pick the barbell back up. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the rest and lack of “things to be done”. Still got a good three weeks left on my paternity leave, hurrah!
