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.

    you are the best!..you make memories to last a lifetime…How many of us wish we had taken such wonderful notes of the lives of our children….

    You failed to recognize a HUGE milestone that was such a parenting timesaver – when they can hold their own bottle.

    Other upcoming “parent timesaving milestones” are being potty trained, telling them to go take a shower and they don’t come back to you 10 minutes later soaking wet, and when both parents can leave the house for an hour and return home to find all kids are still alive.

    I think the one milestone that can go either way, in terms of a parent feeling happiness or sadness, is when the child can finally speak. Now there’s an interesting one. Before they can talk they can give you a dumb, blank stare as if they are thinking ” who’s this A-hole trying to make my laugh “. Later when they CAN speak, they just say it to your face, which in my experience, is MUCH more trying on one’s patience.

    Glad Daft Daddy is back!!!!

    Aye, I am looking forward to that one too Beeze. Right now he’s about as easy to understand as Brad Pitt was in Snatch. Apparently wee Mackie is a pikey!
