How Young Is Too Young To Ship Your Kids Off For the Summer?

For those of you who are friends of Makes Me Wanna Holler and were visiting at the end of June/beginning of July, you'll remember I was a complete mess as my father's generation put it, "I was fit to be tied." I let it all hang out: the bad, the ugly and the worse. I chronicled all of this in the series When A Father Attacks (If you click on this, make sure you read the entries in reverse order...this way you won't start at the end.).

Fast forward to the present, and it's been almost five weeks since that turbulent time. I'm somewhat of a changed man and have come to several revelations about my wife and children, who I am and how I am in relationship to them.

Tomorrow morning I'll be on a plane to my beloved Chi-Town to visit my folks, lounge around the house I grew up in, cool out in the evenings in the backyard and see my baby --- hold her, squeeze her, kiss her a thousand times --- and then some more.

The way life is she probably won't be happy to see me.

We'll see...I'll keep you posted.
