I'm not sure if you have ever seen this video…
Yes, that was me dancing and celebrating (like the jack-a$$ that I am) to music by the late Michael Jackson because my wife and I had just found out that our 5th child was going to be a BOY.
My oldest daughter is 13 years old now, so for the past 11 years, I was “That Guy”.
“That Guy” meaning the poor schmuck with the 4 daughters.
Now don't get me wrong, I know that I'm blessed.
But when you walk around telling people that you've got 4 daughters, automatic facial expressions of “poor you, sir” automatically surface.
And I treat them all like princesses and I know that they'll take care of me when I'm old and gray – because they are ALL, my little girls.
But at some point in the next few years I will have daughters the ages of 12, 14, 16 & 21 ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!!
Please have mercy on me.
There was finally someone else there who could understand why it was great to stand up to go to the bathroom.
Or someone to understand why we need to stay away from mom this week, but make sure that we put the toilet seat down.
Someone with whom I can give a mohawk and not be called a neglectful or unfit father.
Someone else who will chuckle with me when the coach yells, “BALLS IN!!”.
And so, because my son is turning 2 tomorrow, I've decided to do something that I've never done before…celebrate.

Have a great weekend!
