As baby Maddox starts to cry my brother Brian jokingly says “birth control” and having heard that statement before many times, it finely resonated with me. many of my dear friends have small children and I’ve heard all those clichés, but after spending the last few day with my two month old nephew I finely see what a huge undertaking having a baby is. I have always respected parents and parenting but this particular week my respect level has been heightened. I tip my hat the the parents of the world, losing sleep, tuning out tears, bing pooped and peed on and embarrass in restaurants. I still hope to become one, even with all the warning signs. These little angels are priceless. Congratulations to my brother Brain and his lovely wife Dianna.
