Having a child really changes your perspective on things. I remember when I drove my wife and new baby girl home from the hospital, all of a sudden, I felt like the road was such a dangerous place. I drove under the speed limit the whole way home, conscious of the new, precious, fragile life I was now responsible for. Things that never concerned me before are on my mind now, like my diet. I’ve always been a “eat whatever” kind of guy, but every since my daughter was born, I’ve started taking better care of myself. I want to make sure I am healthy and strong, so that I can be there for her, and live a good, long life. Lately I’ve been considering alarm systems and thinking about possibly getting one for us. It is not something that would have ever occurred to me before, but now that I am responsible for keeping this little angel safe, I find myself thinking of all kinds of safety precautions that never crossed my mind before.
