A Wonderful Gift

Being a parent is a priceless and wonderful gift.

It is also really tough.

My eyes have been bloodshot for the past seven weeks.

Getting to work in the morning is a struggle.

We often finish making dinner and then have to wait an hour or more to eat it because the babies keep doing stuff.

I didn’t shower for three days last week.  Sorry, world.

In light of those challenges, it is amazing to have so many wonderful friends and family to help us out.

Especially Katy Perry.

Our daughter has loved Katy Perry’s “Roar” since the first day of her life.  When she is crying and throwing a fit, that glorious song calms her down instantly.  Amazingly, the science books say the kids’ hearing was developing at the exact time I was listening to “Roar” 800 times a day while practicing for a “rap” video to that Katy Perry jam.  Now, that song has become a glorious miracle for our family.

Here’s proof:
