Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. James Lileks

Lilkes today unleashes the terror of the Perry Head as he perfectly frames the secret, joyous miracle of day-to-day fatherhood:

If it all led up to nothing but today, that would be fine. It was an unremarkable day - but then again, when recalled in detail it seems ungrateful to ask for another. And it seems unbelievable that Ill be granted another tomorrow as a matter of course.

Go read the rest. I suppose one of the reasons today's Bleat resonates with me is that the tale of Gnat's shots sharply reminds me of my recent experience with the Llama-ette's stitches.

BTW, what is this "Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus" of which James speaks? We're still firmly entrenched in "Barbie: The Princess and the Pauper," the soundtrack of which (merciful God in Heaven above, I can't believe I'm writing this) has actually grown on me because a) the two girls singing the main parts have well-matched voices and b) I've always particularly enjoyed Martin Short.

I particularly liked the part about people in their forties having kids, speaking as one who is changing the diapers on two crumb-crunchers.

The part about having kids in your 40's resonates with ME because, well. . .

Congrats Margi, as one over forty parent to another. It's quite a ride.

The best part? My YOUNGEST son (eldest is 17, "baby" is 14) can even pinch-babysit. So, yeah. It's got THAT going for it.

Thanks, LMC. I'm ecstatic. Occasionally, I think I've also lost my mind. But you know, go with the flow. Heh.
