Oh Blake,

It's so tiring being a new parent isn't it? I admire you and share your exhaustion. My baby left the nest this past fall(for Vassar), it's so much easier dealing with your children via e-mail and telephone. Don't worry, 18 years go by in a flash!!!!

Oh stop, you did it for 2! She's sick today, I'm hoping she'll sleep ok tonite.
