Having a daughter can be humiliating

This little journey is just over a day old, and Ella Grace has already begun to infringe on both Aiden’s territory and mine. Though Aiden seems genuinely happy about the arrival of his baby sister, he’s also a little conflicted about the way this new creature is demanding his Mommy’s attention. This is normal and something we expected and, with any luck, we’ll work through it in time to prevent him from becoming another statistic among the throngs of preschool runaways.

What I did not anticipate was how quickly Ella would own me, and I’m not talking about the textbook "wrapped around her finger" stuff. I’m talking about practical matters, like internet presence. Look, I’ve been blogging for over two years. I spend countless hours every day (well – every year, anyway) in deep thought and contemplation, mining my vast intellectual resources for brilliant insights to share with the world. This particular site has been alive for over a year.

Ella, on the other hand, showed up a mere thirty hours ago. And here is the traffic log for my verbal gold followed by the numbers for her photo album:




I always knew girls were trouble.

  1. Looking at your wish list of books brings to mind a person who is looking at Modernism and Postmodernism’s effects upon the church. If you would like to contact him, he is David Fraze at Lubbock Christian University. He has been working on his PHD and one of his focus is the afore mentioned topics. Just thought you might like to know.
    Also, congrats on the new blessing. Yes, girls do change your life and will continue to do so for the rest of your life. Just thought you might like to know that also.
    How’s your mom and dad? Saw them in the pictures and wondered…Diana also wanted to know.
