my kids attended my wedding

November 18, 2007

i have a long commute

i know they say it’s not safe, but sometimes i just can’t help myself. when the day has been stressful . . . hell, sometimes just for fun . . . i think and drive.

i know, i know, a mind is a terrible thing.

i know this, but i use mine anyway.

whatever the drawbacks, it takes me to places both amazing and sublime. and tonight it took me back in time.

no need for a stainless steel car

no need to hit 88 mph

those of you who follow my blog know that i married into a ready made family, and i am frankly amazed at all the people who seem to view that as a bad thing.

me, i don’t think so.

if i can be a total guy for a second, i’ll say benefit number one was missing the diaper years.

i will readily acknowledge that that also means i missed a lot of *firsts* that i’d rather not have, but i’m still kinda psyched about missing the toxic green poo era.

and in missing some of those firsts i gained some firsts that most parents never get.

my kids got to be present at my wedding.

they were there when i married their mom.

i’m not into polygamy, but i’ve often said i married 4 people that day. till death do us part, we are a family now. and we always will be.

it was cool standing up at the front of the church with my 4 year old son all dressed up to match me in his little suit.

it was cool to see my daughters decked out as little grinning versions of their mom.

it was cool that we all got to be there for that moment.

it was just cool . . . and in the midst of all life’s crap it was cool to be able to remember that

    What an awesome moment in time – thank you for sharing!

    I hope to one day renew our wedding vows so our daughter can be there and share in the joy of her parents being in love.
