And you will never be able to recall, exactly, your life before Rory ever again. I’m still not sure why it happens. Parent amnesia is weird. I’ll bet your wife had birth pain amnesia as soon as Rory was out. I can’t remember the pain of birthing either of my kids. So, that’s a blessing. I think. :)

Happy Father’s Day Jonas Ellison

(And remember, Rory’s birthday is also the anniversary of you and your wife becoming parents, which is your best and most important job from here on out. I hope you get her a little token each year on that date, just to remind you both of that. Lol. I think parents should celebrate becoming parents as enthusiastically as we celebrate births. :) )

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
