Today.... My Heart Pounds Silently.....

Background Music:
Fife and Drums

I am surrounded and they seek to destroy me fully. They wait patiently, ever quiet and knowledgeable that they have but one chance. For I… I am bigger than they are. For I, the fierce and unbeaten warrior, tower over them. They know they must use stealth to break me, to take charge and defeat me. To draw blood from me is awe-inspiring to them. It can be done! He who draws blood today will be remembered in the halls of manhood for his accomplishments.

I know they are there awaiting my false move. Waiting for me to turn the wrong way, make a wrong choice. For when I do, they will pounce. Oh, heavens, will they pounce. They will hold back nothing. They will bring the fight to me. Small though they be, they shall spring forth into action with the bravery of a 1,000 warriors until they or I am defeated.

All is quiet. I step slowly into the darkness, knowing what must come. Knowing the battle will rage, blood may be shed. A winner will be declared this day. There shall be nothing held back. No stroke, no swipe, no thrown punch will be stilled. Measuring, I take one step and the wrong move has been made. I have caused a slight disturbance, a crackle, to be sounded across this plain of battle.

Air is breathed. Silently. Knowingly. I join the legion that have come before to fight this battle. Sensing movement before it springs, I ready for this encounter knowing it may well be my last. Knowing full well total destruction might lie in the next few seconds because I placed my foot wrong.

And they come. Come with fierceness beyond their years. Battle hardened and brave. Power beats through their bodies as they rush me in the darkness. I am hit suddenly low and then again in the middle. Towering man that I am, I topple forth to be pummeled by these small warriors with everything they have and more. Everything they offer is given to my defeat. I fight back, holding back only a little.

Their war cries echo across this plain of battle. Calling to the crows and eaters of the dead and defeated. My youngest grabs hold of my leg with everything he has. Three feet shorter than I he has the strength of a bear. My oldest son, stout and strong knocks the wind out of me as he pins me to the bed and manages to hold one arm down with all his strength.

However, today, victory shall not come! I am to be victorious again! For I… I have one free hand! In one fell swoop I have command of this battle field. I, battle tested and weary have turned the tides of this battle! Momentum is now mine! Lunging in with my free hand to divide these mighty warriors, I separate their attacks. Flanked now and outmaneuvered, they hold their positions tenaciously but it is for naught. Today the battle is mine! With the command capability of Patton and the flamboyance of Macarthur, my free hand makes one gigantic move that sweeps both these mighty warriors into my arm and frees my once pinned hand. I now crush them to me!

As these fierce warriors struggle in my grasp, I exact the loathed form of punishment they so desperatly seek to avoid! I smack them full on the mouth and declare my love! "EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!AHHHHHHH DADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!"

My Heart cries out joyfuly in my victory! My warriors! My Boys Turning to Men! My Joy! Fight on Dear Ones! Fight on!

There is nothing more rewarding or amazing than being a parent, is there?

Lucky boys to have such a loving dad. And no matter how grossed out they act they'll never forget how much they are loved, that makes strong men. Don't stop grossing them out!

Not all who wander are lost.

I've learned more being a parent than I did in college both times. It's amazing how much they can teach us about ourselves.

(opera clap) Bravo T.

is that what it feels like to be a dad? I'm surprised to discover I am so very envious.

That scenario sound very familiar... oh wait! That's our nightly ritual, my two and hellions and I. BTW, wrestling with the kids is an awesome work out.

Many kisses

Being a dad is the most attractive thing that a man can be. From my perspective.
