The above photo was taken yesterday at a local park. It was our son's first time to swing in the great outdoors, and he had more fun with daddy than words can possibly express.

I think people half-expected me to melt-down last night after two busted National Championship runs in a row. To be honest, OU had losses to UT when I was in college that effected me much more. Both games — 2004 and 2005 — were merely a blip on my life radar. I suppose pregnancy had a full grasp on my brain for both losses. In fact, I was discussing it with a friend via e-mail earlier this morning. Here's part of that conversation...

We remembered last year (when we lost to LSU) about a guy posting to one of Todd's Sooner boards that his 4-year old son "cried all night" after the loss. And we just don't want a football game of a team he doesn't even play on ever being that important to our own son. It's hard enough being a kid without wasting an entire evening crying over a team with no direct impact on your real, daily life. So we've really tried to be careful about perspective since he's been born. And hey, four BCS bowls in five years resulting in one National Championship and one Rose Bowl championship ain't too bad perspective-wise...

For those of you in the Tampa Bay area, my most recent DotMoms article "Math is Hard" was selected for the print-version of the Friday, January 7th edition of the "tbt" (Tampa Bay Times). Here's a list of locations where you can snag your own copy of the paper. I'm quite excited, considering my "Hot potato, hot potato" article was featured in the December 10th edition (page 26)!
