Like more of a wuss now that you have a little child in the house? Evelyn is our third child so it's not that new baby smell. It could be the fact that she's the first girl, but it's hard to be as "manly" with her looking at me with those googly eyes. I'm such a softie. I hope that goes away when she gets old enough to start thinking about dating... I have an image to uphold.

Does this happen to anyone else?

I am like two totally different people when I am at work as an electrician and at home with my daughter. My heart grows so much everytime I see her smile at me.
It's really something when I peek over her crib in the morning and her eyes light up when she sees me.

I thank God every day for her.

I don't really ever feel like a "wuss", but the sensitivity is there.

I'm sure I felt like a "wuss" too, but I don't remember much of it. I do remember laying in the bed with baby (each of the three) and just looking at them. It was always a marvel to me that they were even there.

But somehow, as they grew up, I wanted to make sure they (the boys that is) had none of the "wuss" stuff in them. So they didn't see it in me. That was a mistake. It's important to let the kids in on the emotional stuff too.

I feel like a "wuss" now, even though they're grown. I get misty-eyed all the time It gets embarrassing, but my wife has learned to live with it. I always cry before she does. I even wrote about it on my blog.

I really think we all need to embrace our "wuss-ness" more, but it's still embarrassing in our society!

You see? That's the problem...society. Why should we be embarrassed about how we act with or in front of our families?

Sorry — didn't mean to open the "society" can of worms. I'm just saying . . . Boys don't cry.

This boy does even when it's uncomfortable.

So do I. It's kinda funny because I'm a pretty big guy and if people see me get weepy, they usually...just walk away.
