Daft Daddy is Walking Tall
Greetings Daft Daddy fans! I know it has been ages since my last blog post, and I apologize for that. I’m sure the Captain on your box of Cap’n Crunch is now an Admiral. But guess what? Wee Mac is now walking! I honestly can’t believe it. For a while there I wasn’t sure if he was ever going to walk. I just kind of accepted the fact that he would always be the rock in every school play. I guess I’ll have to stop calling him Ironside.
But now that he can walk, we need to take our baby proofing to the next level – and that starts by installing a baby gate at the top of our stairs. If we don’t, we may as well just change his name from Mac to Slinky – because that’s what he’s going to look like tumbling down it.
Needless to say, Jeni and I are pretty excited about this milestone. But with this excitement does come a bit of sadness. There is a point when a baby turns into a toddler – and it appears Mac has reached that point. I understand that milestones are necessary, as that is how we typically measure our children’s progress – but milestones are also a reminder that things will never quite be the same. Sure I’m a bit sad that wee Mac is no longer a baby, but when he hits the washing my car, mowing the front lawn and getting daddy a beer out of the fridge milestones – I’m sure I’ll get over it.
