My Fire Direction Officer (Part 2)

This is my little boy. He's three, and my sun, my moon, my polar continent. He, and his little sister (to be) are two enormous reasons I started posting here. Someday he will come into his world, and if I want to help make that world something worthy of him - and help make him worthy of the charge - I wanted to try and explore some ideas and discuss some of the things that will effect the world around us. And, someday, around him.

And his little sister - or at least his little-sister-we-hope-to-meet - is coming from China. We are adopting a little girl and are currently in our 6th month of what (unless things change dramatically for the better) is a 12 to 13 month gestation period, putting us ahead of elephants but about even with cows and tapirs. And let's not even discuss marmots. Be sure I'll talk more about this later on...

Anyway, I'm still trying to figure out what it will be like to be the daddy of a little Chinese girl. I can't even think about issues like racial identity, attachment and the fact that her mom-to-be is actually thinking about calling her "Mojo". She's got to be kidding, right?

So I'm thrashing around trying to find knowledge, wisdom and strength to impart to this little guy. Not that he cares at the moment. Right now the most important things in his world are trains, BIG milkies, feeding the cat, and construction equipment of every sort.

No matter what else I may write here, this much will always be the paper it's written on: I love you, Peeper...

Hey Big Soldier Boy,
I came across your blog quite by accident. You come across as a thoughtful, intelligent, perceptive fellow. Obviously married with child(ren) and happy to be in such a state. I wanted to add one comment, a correction, really. You are 48 years old - get it right do the math.

That's cause I just cut-and-pasted from our adoption bios. From last year, there, Mojo Jojo.

You're a silly, silly girl. Time for your lessons.

Glad you dropped in, both of you.
