Jeff and Dave, i've really been enjoying the podcast. i just caught up tonight, and it's so refreshing listening to you guys talk about fatherhood. i've been having a bit of a rough time lately...my two boys (5 & 2) are both wonderful, sweet and smart kids, but they also drive me crazy all the time! they fight with each other, and whine and throw temper tantrums when they don't get their way. we're a single-income household, and my work schedule is pretty hectic, so it puts a lot of pressure on me. and of course, because of that hectic work schedule, they don't get to see me as much as they'd like, so when i'm home it's "daddy daddy daddy!" and that causes me to get less sleep, and be more stressed out and more irritable...just a vicious circle!
sorry for rambling, all this is my long way of saying that listening to you guys puts things into perspective a bit: none of us are perfect, but our goals are commendable: we WANT to be good dads, and that means a lot, considering there are a lot of people out there who don't even seem to want that. i think just about every episode has given me at least a nugget of wisdom to carry forward. keep up the great work!
