I was in St. Louis this weekend. I was finally able to visit the Arch, and it was surprisingly impressive. I've been let down before with monuments and other so-called famous tourist attractions, so I wasn't expecting much. This was different though. It was extremely cold, and i was dared to stick my tounge against the arch to see if it would stick. Nope, no such luck. I could imagine the headlines if it had stuck.... "Idiot Sticks Tounge To Arch." I might have even made the darwin awards.... scary.
I've come to realize that my 2 year old daughter is one of the coolest people I've ever known. At 2 she already has a sense of humor, a unique and funny laugh, and she loves to dance and listen to music. The best part, she is the only child I know who says 'Please and Thank You' without being prompted. If she hurts you, she apologizes and feels remose. It's just amazing what a 2 year old is capable of. I know I know, give her a few more years and she'll be asking for money, wearing make-up, and won't want to be seen near me, which is why I'm going to enjoy every minute of this phase she's in. I know it won't last long... my 5 year old is already corrupting her. My 5 year old thinks she's 12 already, but that's another story (and another headache).
Only 8.5 months until I turn 30. I'm desperately trying to increase my maturity level to meet my upcoming birthday, but I don't think It's going to work. I'm doomed... or should I say my poor wife is doomed. She's the one that deals with me.
