I've jumped in puddles, wandered through woodlands, climbed mountains, sat up all night holding tiny hands, lost sleep, wished for sleep, discovered new ways of looking at things, hunted for dragons, laughed, cried, despaired, worried, wondered, learned. I have felt happy, I have felt sad, frustrated, furious, proud, bewildered, scared, overwhelmed, exhausted, elated, exasperated, exhilarated. I have gotten through whole days purely on adrenaline (and maybe a bit of caffeine) and other days, well, I don't know how I got through them at all. If there is an adventure bigger than parenthood, I would be very surprised indeed - and this is the single most amazing adventure of my life. I can't wait to see where else it takes me.
