Happy Easter

I got an awesome card in the mail from my son yesterday. He wrote that he's sad that he couldn't be with me this Easter and I nearly cried.

Holidays as a divorced parent are hard. Holidays are when the most planning has to be done in order to make sure that you can spend time with your kids and family. Getting little things like this card when you aren't expecting them make any pain that you go through as a parent completely worth it.

This Easter we are being blessed with another baby. It's not ours directly, but my sister-in-law is in the hospital right now bringing into the world her second daughter.

Four years ago on Easter Sunday, my wife's best friend gave birth to a boy. And March/April is the largest concentration of extended birthdays that we have. It's a great time to celebrate.
