The Mortal Peril of Joy

I nearly exploded. My wife and I were happily reading away when a cacophony of giggles erupted from the bedroom shared by our two children. Our boy, just a couple of months past 2, and our girl, 9 months, were not asleep at 10 PM, an hour after they had gone to bed. Instead, the two year old was smashing his face against the webbing of the crib and both kids were laughing hysterically.

Frankly, I’m not sure if I can survive another day with the joy of being a dad. I see my wife and my kids all being so cute and I just think I’m going to bust. I’m so glad I can enjoy life when the times are so good. It makes all the tough times much more bearable. And I’m grateful for my family. Somebody pass the duct tape. I’m going to have to reinforce my body.
