Seven years ago this evening I became a first-time Dad… so we’re celebrating my oldest daughter’s birthday yesterday and today. For anybody who knew me 10 or 15 or 20 years ago, you might be saying, “Wow, that’s weird. Freaky. Brother Maynard has kids, God help us.” And I’d be pretty much agreeing with you. Of course, anyone with kids will also know the weirdness of this feeling of not being able to fathom how the little bundle you brought home from the hospital, like two weeks ago or maybe it was yesterday just got so big and so all-growed-up. All of a sudden.
