Daddy's Girl

It is really interesting how a baby changes a man. Especially a girl.

We all know that when a man has a son, there is alot of caveman-like interaction. Boys are born to make noises, crash into things and take death-defying leaps off anything they can climb. Girls are treated as if made of the most delicate china. That's quite funny considering Isabella will climb onto anything she can reach, then precariously teeter on the edge of it before flinging herself downward.

Back to how a baby changes a man. Especially a girl.

Heath has always been "one of the guys". You know the type. Loves beer, Maxim magazine, Hugh Hefner and talking about the conquers of long past. A large reason he's still this way is because all of his friends, except one, is married. And even that friend doesn't act married most of the time.

When we found out we were having a girl, Heath began to change. The first time I noticed was when we were driving down the highway and a convertible full of pretty teen girls drives by. Know what he says? "Those girls better put on coats or they're going to freeze to death". I couldn't stop laughing about that for days.

Then Isabella made a friend at Little Gym named Mitchell. She and Mitchell just love playing together. They are alot alike except, of course, he's a BOY. Heath has made it very clear he'll be "keeping an eye on that boy". Mitchell is 20 months old!

The other day, I saw the video for BlackEyed Peas called "My Hump". I saved it for Heath because it is such a strange song and will be played in every Hooters from now on.
We're watching it, then notice Isabella starts to imitate the dance moves. I thought it was hilarious and adorable. Heath was mortified! Then he pointed out to me that if I flash forward 13 years, that could be our daughter trying out for drill team. Needless to say, that video was erased from DVR and Isabella is forbidden to watch any more MTV with mommy.

With Isabella only a year and a half old, she's got the rest of her life to give her Daddy mini-strokes and heartbreaks. As he likes to quote Chris Rock, his main goal as her dad is to just keep her off the pole.

I guess now you understand a little better what your dad went through with you.

Ha! Well, fortunately, I was too shy to try out for drill team. I just daydreamed about boys all day in class.

Amanda Sue said...

"keep her off the pole."

Babies change men, women, and mother-in-laws...

My husband also likes to be the man's man, but when we got pregnant, he would see a girl come into church in a skirt that was a little too short, and he would remark about how HIS daughter will NEVER wear that kind of outfit to church.
And now that we have a boy, he sees a girl and says, "Thank God we had a boy!"

So she gets to put boys through the Heath test! Ahhhh the teenage years are going to be fun. Sometimes I wish you could ship kids away from ages 13-19 and get them back all growed up and mature!

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
