Life has changed. Vacations no longer consist of sitting idly by the pool, or packing a nice, light bag solely meant for me.
There is no:
- Why don’t I spend a bunch of time setting up this super artful photograph?
- Gosh, that was such a great ski line, why don’t we hike up the mountain and do it again?
- Man, I have been surfing for hours. Let’s go and chill on the beach with a beer.
- Hey, let’s grab our kayaks and disappear for a few days down this super dangerous river where there is no cell reception!
You never know how much doing you are going to do when you say, I do, right? Now I have two young boys and life is very different.
When my first son was born a good friend said, “Welcome to manhood.” He couldn’t have been more right. Kids are the real test of will and perseverance. I swear every time I hear the word, “Dad,” another hair pops off my head.
But it is exactly what the freewheeling, fun-soaked, and child-free folks often hear from a subservient procreator like me….
It’s so rewarding.
Life is more challenging, and some days I feel like I’m walking around with my pant pockets turned inside out. But what a thrill to play witness and direction to my two boy’s endless discoveries. Here a just a few precious moments from this new adventure.
