Right now, at this moment, you are on your way into the world. Unfortunately, you're moving a little slow and very much at your own pace. I respect that, I do, but I hope by the time you're 12 and we're going on road trips you realize there is only one pace-- mine.
Anyway. Today is March 11th. Not a bad day to be born. I kind of like the numbers actually. And you aren't going to be over-shadowed by any holidays. Well, except Lent, but that's more of a season and I doubt anyone will be giving you up for Lent, so you should be safe.
There are some pretty interesting things going on in the world today, your mom is busy and apparently your father hurt himself lifting weights, so I am going to act as scribe to remember all that is going on today.
First off, in an unprecedented move American Idol has 13 contestants. I know, right? I wish I could give you some more info, but I haven't watched last night's episode yet, because you should know-- Tuesday night is for Biggest Loser. I apologize.
Lost is your parents favorite show. I'm kind of nervous about tonight actually, I hope your dad can juggle your birth and watching tonight!
Barack Obama is president. Yes, he's black. So, it's a pretty big deal. Hopefully, by the time you're older it won't be as big a deal, maybe it'll even be common. I'd like that.
Democrats are in control in Congress. It's interesting. Oh, and everyone on The Hill (Capitol Hill) is obsessed over Twitter. You should get a Twitter so everyone knows your every move. Or not.
The Arkansas Razorbacks had a pretty poor season last year. Alabama kicked the you know what out of them, but things are looking up for this season. I mean, Casey Dick is gone. So, that's good.
Chris Brown beat up Rihanna. And she forgave him. I'm all about grace, but COME ON. Britney Spears is back on tour. I'm going, so I'll update you on that later.
Harper, you're really coming into the world at an interesting time. Times are changing. I'm glad you'll be along for the ride. I can't wait until you start texting! It's all the rage.
See you sooner than later,
