Clearly, by entering my domain, you have forced me to friend you. Male, 40-ish, soon to be two kids, dog... just like me.

Runner, PhD, cat... totally opposite.

Sounds like a good mix!

We can't save the actual note because it goes back to the teacher, but I have a copy saved on the box. It is really fun to watch your child develop their own personality. Everything you've seen thus far is merely the foundation for the personality to come. And it is most exciting to see your second child taking a different course from the very beginning! I almost envy you, but there's that diaper thing, and puking, and not sleeping... I so don't envy you, really.

I have friended you as well.

The running thing is relatively new. About a year and half ago I was 40 lbs. heavier and in terrible shape. High blood pressure, felt terrible. Doc said that by the charts I was morbidly obese. Egads. So I put a plan into place and now my life is different. Speaking of that, how's the New Year's resolution coming?

I'm excited and terrified at the same time. We are outnumbered right now, 1 to 2. I'm not sure what we'll do when it's 2 to 2.

I've been "morbidly obese" most of my adult life. I have lost 12 pounds since starting, mostly without exercise, however that includes several (already!) episodes of a few pounds up and a few back down. I have the same gift/affliction as thunderslug in that I answer inquiries truthfully, sometimes whether I should or not.

We are outnumbered right now, 1 to 2

How true! That made me laugh and remember when Josh was born. It truly seemed our second child tripled our work load. Now that my guys are 5 and 10, we are in a lull before those teen years and things are "manageable" as child-rearing goes: no diapers, self-feeders, sleep through the night in their own bed, etc.

I've already told Allie (the wife) that if she gets pregnant I'm moving to Mexico under an assumed name. Of course I don't really mean that. (That's just to throw her off, I'm going to Europe!)
