Three is a Magic Number

Daddy Forever was kind enough to tag me. I usually take these things way too seriously. I have trouble with editing myself, which is going to be an issue when I go for #2 on my “Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die.” I either can’t decide which three are tops, or I have trouble coming up with even one. Well, here goes:

  1. Birth defect is one of my big fears too. We’re been lucky with the first three kids. But my wife wants a fourth and we’re beyond young, so I’m more concern now about something going wrong than I was with the first three kids.

  2. Household6 says:

    I played!

    Daddy forever I’m 35 and I worry about being “old” all the time and its my first child we’re having. I don’t think the fear ever really goes away.

  3. Oh honeychild, you know you don’t want to know my answers to these questions! Hee hee hee!
