People ask me all the time about the challenges of my career choice… and there are many. From difficult terrain with a heavy pack on your back to ridiculous weather conditions… and so much more. But all those challenges pale in comparison to being a parent. Don’t get me wrong – I love every part of it… even the stuff that drives me nuts.

When I’m on location, I’m always ready to drop everything and head back home in case of an emergency. Scheduling an upcoming trip feels like a bad comedy… trying to work around soccer games, theater productions, doctors appointments, and parent-teacher conferences isn’t easy. Of course, getting a break from the kids – a few days in the wilderness somewhere – is a treat. But coming home is even better. Every single time.

So, I don’t talk about my kids on my blog very often (I know this isn’t what you’re here for), but today I just want to take a moment to let you know that my kids are amazing. Each and every one of them.

I love you guys! Don’t forget to brush your teeth, and watch out for falling rocks! ;)

    Awww. Wonderful sentiments. So…are there pictures of your kids somewhere? Because all I see are these mostly grown people who bear NO RESEMBLANCE to your little ones. Wow, time flies. I’m so glad you’re happy and fulfilled, my friend. Happy Mother’s Day! I declare Virtual Tommy’s for both of us (with a jelly train for Damian).
