A quick list

1. Studying for the bar is lame.

2. Studying for the bar with a newborn is lamer.

3. Andrea's being really nice and letting me get plenty of sleep.

4. Eli has to eat every two or three hours . . . day AND night. Sure, I knew that babies were demanding. But one's foresight is limited "in the moment," right? On top of the actual feeding, it takes another 30 minutes to check his diaper, burp him, swaddle him, and get him back to sleep. I was burping and rocking him a few mornings ago at some awful hour. It was dark and he was really quiet, not stirring at all. I was hoping he was asleep. I turned on a night-light to get a better look at his face and noticed that his eyes were wide open. He turned his head slightly and gave me a look that said, "Hey dad. What are we doing?" I wanted to kiss his face and yell at him at the same time.


  1. Welcome to parenthood! It's beautiful and frustrating all at once.

  2. yeah, i have a feeling that you are going to have those conflicting feelings about a million times about your children during the course of your life :) that is funny
