Since becoming a father in 2011, I was not prepared for what I was about to hear, or say, in the subsequent years. Fatherhood has been a complete blast so far, and I’ve listed just a few of Lucas and I’s highlights over the past three years:

  • “Dude, where are your pants?”
  • “Daddy come here! Look at the size of this poop!”
  • “Does mommy feed Charlie out her stomach?”
  • “Do these look like nipples?” (Referring to suction cups on my sons chest)
  • “Dude, where’s your underwear?”
  • “Why are you naked?”
  • “Now that I’m three, and a brother, does that mean I can drive?”
  • “Can I ride a lion?” “No son, sorry.” “Why not? They seem so furry and gentle.”
  • “Does mommy got boobies!”
  • “Daddy…Come wipe my butt!”

There are so many others, but these are the sayings that stick out in my mind. I’m sure the next few years will be riddled with laughter, and I can’t wait to make more memories, especially now that we have two little ones running around.
