I have a tattoo on the back of my neck, it is a fairy sitting on a morning glory, within her wings are the sun signs of Aquarius, that would be me, Scorpion, that would be my son, and Picese, that would be my daughter that passed away when she was 15 months old. She is a beautiful fairy with red hair and a hazy blue shift on. Under the morning glory she is sitting on it says “Believe”, I have many items that say “Believe” on them, Believe in what? Whatever makes you happy, whatever gives you peace, whatever makes it through another day. I firmly believe that we are not here to simply live life, nor do I believe that life ends when you die, it just changes. I believe that if you can think good things, release negative energy and bitterness that you can do anything you want to do. I BELIEVE!

Ready or not…

We have just returned from sufficiently stuffing ourselves with Mexican food. It’ll be noodles from here on out, at least starting Friday when we arrive in Beijing. I have mixed emotions, excitement, anticipation and fear. I am not sure what order as they seem to come in different waves. I need to just slow down and enjoy the next two weeks, just take them as they come. Like JE says, i have no control over these things so why worry about them. Tait is in need of some Mommy cuddling so i best be doing my job.

3 days

We are three days to take off. In less than a week we will be parents again and Tait will be a big brother. In a very positive way, our lives will be changing. It is a nice feeling. Yesterday we went to a “waiting families event.” This is a gathering of people who are in some phase of the adoption process with our agency. I can remember going to our first meeting and looking at those people who were about to leave to get their babies and now we are one of those people! We are almost packed and only a little over our goal. If i were not taking snacks we would probably be a little lighter! (I assume JE will make me leave some behind. It is either food or baby items.) Trying to do last minute tasks that need to be done. I slept well last night. I am sure these next few will be restless.

Mirena Lawyers

Mirena attorneys may be all that stand between you and financial ruin. If you received a birth control Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine device and suffered serious injury, you face medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering. Those losses are the responsibility of the negligent maker of a IUD birth control.

Side Effects and Complications

Mirena lawyers from our firm have the skill, knowledge and experience to press your case in the legal arena with a lawsuit. Such a Mirena side effects lawsuit can target Bayer, which manufactured the defective medical device and is legally responsible for complications and injuries.

Mirena injuries can include infertility, miscarriage, weight gain and serious infections. The side effect lawsuit also can include perforation of the uterus and the intestine, as well as abscesses, adhesions and expulsion of this IUD. They also can include migration of the IUD to other parts of the body beyond the uterus.

Additional negative effects which can be the basis of Mirena lawsuits include pelvic pain, headaches, irregular spotting or bleeding, vaginitis, breast tenderness, painful menstruation, acne, ovarian cysts, amenorrhea and pelvic inflammatory disease or PID, which can be particularly damaging.

Some of these unwanted effects even can be life-threatening. Clearly, they can be the basis of a side effect lawsuit filed by our law firm.

Legal Fees

Will you have to pay legal fees to our lawyers? In truth, you will not. Our birth control Mirena lawyers work under what’s known as a contingency fee agreement, which signifies that they aren’t paid unless your case prevails, and then from the settlement amount.

The Changing Role of The Dad

Mack’s gonna be on TV tonight (Sept. 24), on The Agenda with Steve Paikin (it’s live at 8 p.m. if you live in Ontario, on TVO), with a bunch of experts talking about “the changing role of the father.”

Mack does not pretend to be a “parenting expert.” I suppose I have been asked on the show to represent the “regular guy” and/or “average joe” Dad.

Also probably because I spent several years in the trenches of stay-at-home-Dad-dom.

I kind of loved it, and I wrote a book about it, but looking back on it I can only say: Thank God those years are over!

Thank God I don’t even remember what a full diaper smells like (I have a vague memory it was an extremely revolting odour).

The other panel members and I are discussing “the changing role of the father.” Good thing it’s an hour-long show. Too bad it’s not three hours!

What hasn’t changed? Of course, we’re talking about a slice of a particular culture. In some cultures, nothing about the role of the father has changed, and they continue to live in an almost medieval model.

But in Mack’s world, everything has changed. Throw a stick in the playground in the park across the street from Mack’s house, on a Wednesday afternoon, you’ll hit more stay-at-home dads than moms.

(Actually it’s about equally divided between nannies, grannies, stay-at-hom dads, and stay-at-home moms.)

And I think of, like, how (so the myth goes anyway) fifty years ago a husband used to be able to say to his wife: “End of discussion. I…have spoken.”

If I said to Mrs. Daddy: “End of discussion, I have spoken,” she would laugh in my face.

“Wrong again, bub. The discussion is ongoing.”

But I like that. I like being married to a strong-willed woman, to an equal. I don’t want a “helpmeet,” I don’t want a doormat.

I want a partner. Us vs. world. It’s fun. I’m glad I wasn’t a dad of 40 years ago. Having to make all the money, keep their emotions bottled up inside, etc.

It sounds awful.
