dad life.

Reflection. I can do this sometimes late at night or very early in the morning. I think about our family, what an amazing journey it has been. In less than a month, I will be the Dad of a 6 year old. Good grief, where did the time go? I often find “mom” stories out there, written as family stories. It is rare that I find the “dad” stories.

Today, I want to share a post from a Dad named Ross. They have twins along with a older child, very similar to our situation. Their pregnancy was rife with danger and uncertainty, yet the conclusion was pure joy and miraculous. This particular post from this Dad exudes thoughts and feelings I had not only when our twins were born, but when I unplugged from the workforce to be a SAHD. He does follow up with another post (part 2) that does describe the fun moments in their day to day journey. It is amazing how small those were at the time, but how big they become later. Our twins are older now, but boy does this post bring back memories.

I have many things to share about Savanna’s Journey as of late. It has been a fast start to 2014. We have already met our insurance deductible (in theory), and January is not over yet! Stay tuned. Ken.

And repeat.

Ross and MaebynThe day to day adjustments have been hard and taking care of three kids is not easy but by far the hardest thing that I’ve learned through these last couple of weeks is I no longer have a life outside of…
