I have many leather-bound books, and my house smells of rich mahogany.
I stick to the four basic food groups of beef, pork, chicken, and potatoes.
I have Pine, Canadian Woodland, and Hickory Smoke scented colognes.
I enjoy hard-hitting football games on giant HD plasma screen TV’s.
I collect calluses like a kid collects baseball cards.
I believe that the darker the beer, the better.
My favorite movies include Lord of the Rings and Band of Brothers.
My guitar amp volume goes to 12.
I make fire with sticks and flint.
I live vicariously through myself.
I take my coffee black (ok…not true).
However, God apparently has a sense of humor and felt that I needed to dial back the testosterone. In a big way. Yesterday, December 29, 2009, Missy and I found out that our babies, the Hardinge Triplets, are all three…wait for it…
To quote the All-American family man Clark Griswold, “If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”
Look out, world…three baby girls are heading our way in May. If I was in disbelief before, this has completely blown my mind. We are already defying the odds though, so I guess I should have expected this! Plus Missy has had a few reoccurring dreams recently that featured three baby girls. We were also having a tough time coming up with boys names (the girls names were easy, but you won’t know until delivery, so don’t ask 😉 )…so I really should not be shocked at all by this latest revelation. At any rate, I am beside myself with excitement, anticipation, and joy! I am going to spoil those girls rotten, and I can’t wait ’til they get here!
I am Man, but…
My best friend in the whole-wide-world is a girl (Missy).
I can easily learn to like tea parties and fairy princesses.
I cried when I watched The Notebook for the first time.
I’ve been told that I am a good listener.
I’m not afraid to wear pink.
…and my future man-cave will be bigger than your house.
(Hey, I can dream, right?)
