Oh, How Life Changes

Zach was instant messaging with a friend of his at work.  Zach asked his friend (married, no kids) about his week-end.

Friend:  "It was great. Went out Saturday night with a bunch of guys I play basketball with.  Went to downtown Peoria and stayed out way too late.  It was a blast, but Sunday morning was ROUGH.  How was your week-end?"

Zach:  "It was great.  Took Staley swimming and out to eat.  Played mermaids.  Had lots of fun.  And felt fine Sunday morning.  :)"

Having kids requires making some trades.  Trading in the economy car for a mini-van.  Trading in late night movies on the couch for 9:30 bedtime.  Trading in exotic vacations for children's museums and zoos.  Trading in lazy week-end mornings for 7 a.m. wake-up calls.  And trading in week-end nights on the town for swimming and playing mermaids.  When you have kids, you have to make some trades.  And we definitely came out on top!
