Simple Advice

I'd like to share some really good, simple advice I got a little bit ago.  My friend John passed some advice on that his dad had told another one of our friends when they found out they were going to be a dad.

"Congratulations.  You're now the 3rd most important person in your life."

That really boils it down doesn't it?  You can read thousands of pages of baby books but never get something so refined.  I remind myself of this whenever I don't put my seat belt on right away, when I think about skipping a work out, or when I really don't feel like reading more baby stuff.  I also think about it when my wife reaches into her big bag of crazy and pulls something mind numbingly frustrating out.  It's not about you and what you want.  It's about helping your wife and baby be happy and healthy, and doing the same so you will be there for them.
