June 18, 2006 - Happy Father's Day!!!

A lot is spoken of about how a woman's life changes when she becomes a mother; I don't know that a lot is said about how the lives of men are altered forever by the arrival of their children.  On May 16 of this year, that's exactly what happened to Rob when Nicole was born.

On that day he was thrust into a life of diaper changes, twilight feedings and sleep deprivation... camera over-usage, cradling her to sleep and cute nicknames (he named her Kicky McChien because of how much she kicks!)... laughing at hiccups, burps and farts... and falling in love with her over and over again...

A life of school days and the eventual graduations... teaching her to ride a bike and drive a car... the "birds and bees" conversation from his perspective... screening teachers, friends and boyfriends (which will probably give him a heart attack)... giving her away on her wedding day... becoming a grandfather...

This is the woman he will love for the rest of his life.

So to Rob, from the ladies in your life, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!

And to all my dad friends, a wonderful Father's Day to you too!
