She Almost Made It…

Captain’s Log. Daddy Chronicles. Diaper Date 1571. The eldest decided that she wanted to stay up until the ball dropped. This was going to be a challenge for all involved.

Captain’s Log.  Daddy Chronicles.  Diaper Date 1564.  The lights on the tree are still glowing.  The house is finally silent.  It was a very good day. Before I go to sleep…I have one question.
