I've realized that perspectives shift drastically once a person becomes a parent. All of a sudden, one's own safety takes a backseat the safety of that person's child. Likewise, a parent will go hungry to feed his or her child - either by eating later or going without food completely.

Perspective in regard to time also changes ones kids enter one's life. Yesterday, Annika was up at 3:30 AM, ready to start the day. We saw that awakening time as painful and too early. Before Annika, if we'd be awakened at 3:30, we would have been irritated (if not angry) and would have seen that time as completely ungodly. This morning, Annika woke up at 5:03 AM. I celebrated and relished in the fact she "slept in." Before Annika, we would have seen a 5:03 AM wake up as too early, but probably do-able if push came to shove.

Thanks for sleeping in today, Annika. Mommy and Daddy are very grateful!
