I'd be happy to do anything I could to help, too!

Hello everyone. Ballcoach, congratulations on the news of your baby girl! My baby girl is about to turn six this summer, and I can't believe how old she's getting. Not sure if I shared this story or not, and if I have I'm sorry...

But, you mentioned the concealed carry permit, or the cleaning of the shotguns. It starts early! My daughter was outside playing with her friends on our street and she ran up to me and said, "Daddy, those boys are trying to smooch all of us girls. But I put my hands up and told them 'enough with the kissing!'"

Dang right that's enough with the kissing, you little punk boys. But she has me and her big brother to look out for her.

Adrian & I are taking a trip to see both of our families this weekend. Can't wait!
Your Dad sounds like he was a man after my own heart! Did Adrian get the gun tour, too?

I hope y'all have a great trip to see the families!

Like everybody else, I'll jump in and help out when I'm available. (The darn office is eating up more and more of my time and energy lately ... often not able to check in during the day now.) I certainly hope she sticks around. Being Louann's sister, she's already a member of the family!

Thanks, Brad!!

I don't think he was shown the guns, but he did get a talking to! I'm sure it was a polite, but firm, take good care of my daughter kind of talk =]

My poor parents had only met him a few times before we moved away to Las Vegas, so they had him over for dinner & my Dad talked to him outside while he was grilling for over an hour. My Mom suggested that I just let them talk for a bit & stay inside with her...!

Ahh, to be fly on the wall!!
