"The Barn is Full of Walkers"

Glenn to the group: "So, uh, guys? The barn's full of walkers." - The Walking Dead

That's kind of how I felt after I took this video of Patrick walking for the first time the other day.

It was an awesome milestone and he was so damn happy to finally do it after weeks of struggling, but at the same time, I knew our lives had just changed drastically. Ish just got real!  My recent article about 'How to Handle Multiple Kids Using Basketball Defenses' just became even more relevant for myself. I need to take my own advice and really step up the D!

We now have three boys under the age of 5 that are not only walking, but ready to wrestle and tackle each other at the drop of a hat. They think it's hysterical. My wife and I just cringe as we let them get their energy out and have some fun but also watching for sharp objects and breakables in the area.

"It's a very difficult situation" to quote Tony Soprano.

We've already had a "hole in the wall" incident from some wrestling and horse play before bed and that was almost a year ago! I now have a house full of Baby Gronk's who love beating each other up for fun and they get more agile, faster, and stronger by the day. My head already hurts just thinking about the fights I am going to have to break up.
I don't even want to think about how many things I'm going to have to replace or fix over the next few years such as walls, stairs, and windows. Our food bill is also ready to double and then triple in a short time too.

We are so screwed!  Please pray for me and my wife!  HA.
