10 more rules for dating my daughter

Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots.

Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose his compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants three sizes too small, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your ass.

Delivering my son: ‘Breathe, baby, breathe!’

As I knelt on the bedroom floor, on the phone with 911, I didn’t understand what was happening at first. I thought something had gone wrong — or at least that the paramedics would have plenty of time to arrive.

When your wife is pregnant, no one tells you, “By the way, she might skip labor, suddenly fall to the floor, and give birth. Oh, and the umbilical cord might be tangled around the baby’s neck five times.”
