Good evening,

I made it through a full shift at work tonight, I still feel well. We have Eggnog at my store already!!!! I took a picture of it and posted it to the Blossoms thread, I have never taken part of the Blossoms thread the 3 years I have been here, until now.

I have to head back to work bright and early.

Have a good night all!

I was thinking along those same lines, Crown. Coach's post was truly from the heart.

After reading Ballcoach post I think I will go take Jordan and James to bed with us tonight and just let them sleep in our room you can never spoil a little one too much Have a great night fellow Christmas nuts I will talk to you all in the morning!!!

This time difference sometimes drives me crazy. When majority of guys are going to sleep, I'm starting my day here. ^^

Anyway, good morning everyone!



I'm about to go to uni so I just popped in to wish all a nice day!

Good lunch time MMC Gang!

Those time differences make me crazy too.

I would love to watch one of those QVS (is that right?) shows with you one day. After reading all your posts it seems like they are funny. Do they run everyday?

I'm feeling much better today. Guess the stomach flu figured out that I'm boring company and decided to go and bother someone else.

Yesterday I got great news from my best friend. She's having her second baby sometime around late February or early March. I'm soo excited and hope for a girl. Her baby boy is going to be one year old on December 1th.

It is so handy when the train stays in one place overnight (New Orleans). Oh, don't worry about being schoolmasterish. We all make suggestions to each other about different ways to approach things, whether headaches, stomach flu, or other things, LOL! My energy is still here!!! YAY! I hope we hear soon about Coach, Dr. Wifey, and La Bambina. It is so exciting!
I know they are awful. My sister is prone to have them, as she has lactose intolerance and a very sensitive stomach. Mine is usually pretty strong too. Don't know why I got it this time.

The love of my life was hurting. She was in so much pain because of an accident with her epidural. I kinda felt robbed....all I ever heard was how great the birth process was....and it didn't feel like that to me....

Until I saw my daughter.

When she came out....and they placed her on my wife...when they handed her to me....never has something so light (7.5 pds) felt so heavy....and yet so pure....

I was so humbled to be in her presence....that I literally wanted to crawl under a chair because I didn't feel worthy...it was so emotional....

and all I remember telling myself...with tears coming down my face....is that no one....no one.....deserves all the blessings.....no one deserves to be this lucky....

for I am blessed...

I wanted so long to be a father....I've dreamed of it for nine months....and now I just want to spend the rest of my life being her Dad.....it seems as if nothing else even matters anymore...

My promise to my daughter is this....I will be the man she needs me to be. I will show her what a man is supposed to be....so that she knows what to look for one day....I will teach her to pray...how to win and how to lose...but mostly...through my example I set by how I treat her....I will show her how to love unconditionally....

She was born at 9:46 pm....she was 19 inches and 7.5 pounds...

and it was love at first sight....
Wow, I'm sitting here (in the office mind you) and trying very hard not to cry. Such beautiful words. I'm sure your wife and your daughter know how lucky they are to have you. You are going to be such an amazing father! Your words just show how dedicated and thoughtful you are. Please never doubt your worthiness! Your daugther one day will tell you how happy she is to have you! May god bless you and your family.
