Another Blogging Baby

Filed under: Life — olbroad @ 9:07

Last night, another little bundle arrived in the blogging world.

Congratulations to Dave and Amy on the birth of C.J.   I will refrain from pinching those great cheeks.  🙂

Ok, who’s next?  WendyJennaKathy? Jessica?  🙂  Ok, I’ll behave. And sure don’t look at me!



  1. There’s no one here to have them unfortunately. News like this makes me happy and extremely depressed at the same time because I have none of my own.

    Funny thing was when I was married my wife and I both wanted kids. She just didn’t want mine. She essentially slept around after saying “I do” … with anyone but me.

  2. Then it’s a good thing y’all didn’t have any young’uns. It’s not too late to find the right one and have a baby or two, ya know. 🙂

  3. At my age … I heard Michael Savage rip guys 40 or older having kids as being selfish.

    What’s driving me is I was taunted frequently as an adolescent and young adult that no one would ever want my kids and that I wasn’t man enough to make them (if you catch my drift). I have spent my entire adult life trying to prove them wrong.

    I’ve been advised to adopt. Thanks but no thanks … a child that I had no hand in creating would be a constant reminder of something else I failed at and couldn’t accomplish.

  4. As an adoptee, I can tell you that only if a child fails to thrive, will you have failed. Being part of the creation is all well and good, but you know as well as I do that there are a lot of ‘throw away’ kids in need of love and guidance. I’m with them. Open your heart. You’ve got a lot to share with a kid, whether you were there at the conception or not.

    Sometimes I think Michael Savage has a major problem. Both my parents were in their 40’s when they adopted me.

    If abortion had been legal way back when, I have no doubt I wouldn not be here right now.

  5. Don’t look at me, it would be a medical miracle if I had baby #5.

  6. But don’t you believe in miracles? LOL

  7. I dunno. It would always be a reminder to me. Kinda like settling for what you can get instead of what you want. That’s what I did when I married her. I was told with all my limitations, that was the best I could get.

    I am angry at God for denying this privilege (fatherhood) to me.

  8. Look at it this way…you get to choose your kid, instead of settling for the one ya get. 🙂

    Right now, I’m so angry with my one and only child, I’d swear she had to be switched at birth, cuz no kid of mind would behave in such a manner.

    G-d isn’t denying you fatherhood, you are. He’s just saying pick one that is there. At least that would be my take on it. :/ You can be a daddy, instead of just a father.
