Soccer Dad: One Year In
Just a note to say Happy First Birthday to miggity Mace Marvelous. Last night, Wifey and I were remembering the moments leading up to Maceo entering the world and were shaking our heads. It was chaos because he was 2 weeks early and the dial-a-nurse misdiagnosed her labor as "dehydration pains." In short: we did active labor at our home, broke water then sped to the hospital in record time and she delivered in less than an hour (no epidurl).
Wifey asked, "What do you remember when you first saw him?" All I remember is repeating some combination of "Oh my God! AAAAA!!! He's here! Maceo, you're finally here!" Thank you, son, for giving us a year we'll always cherish. You're here. Finally.
