I can’t tell you how much I love being a dad. My girls are a delight and blessing to me each and every day. Seeing one of those girls light up when they see me and run at me to give me a hug is just the best part of my mornings. Working from home is a challenge with three kids 5 and under in the house, but I wouldn’t go back to a cubicle for anything.
My hope and my plan is that I will stay a remote worker through the end of my career so I can be an active part of my kids’ daily life, education, and formative years.
Having more kids than adults in the house is a bit of managed chaos at all times, but I wouldn’t change a thing. Honestly, I’m still open to having more at some point in the future. My wife is on board, though some days she’s more open to the idea than others, depending on how stinky the girls are being.
Kids are a blessing. They force you to confront your selfishness and your need for control. They also help you understand the love and compassion God has for us.
As some rowdy Presbyterians would say: if you’re single, get married, and if you’re married, have some babies. And if you have babies, baptize them—as soon as they make a credible profession of faith.
That’s the end of #ThirtyThankfuls for 2022. Can I post for another 31 days (mostly) in a row? I’m sure gonna try.
In the meantime, I have a question for you, reader: what’s your favorite Christmas Carol/hymn? Let me know in the comments!
