Congratulations! You can look forward to many more amazing lessons from your child.


Congratulations, there are many opportunities to learn from children and hopefully keep in touch with the child within each of us!


Congratulations! I think the most valuable thing I've learned from my five and three year old girls is that the most important thing in the world is what you are doing right now (or more precisely, what they are doing right now).

Wishing you many days of happiness, and many nights of sleep.


Hearty CONGRATULATIONS! My daughter was born nearly two years ago and the experience and life lessons have been wonderful!


What marvelous news. All the best to you, your wife, and you darling daughter. May the three of you live a life of wonder and exploration.

I could not agree more with you on this topic. I have a niece who is about to turn 7 and she is one of the most innovative people that I have ever met. To look inside her mind with be like walking though a wonderland filled with limitless creativity and inspiration.
I am currently enrolled in an Advanced Communications course for my MBA and if I have noticed anything it is that as we become older we loose all ability to imagine. Our presentations become so plain and professional that we forget that we actually want our audience to listen. We forget to captivate them and instead bore them with the same materials over and over again.
As strange as it seems, my course has acted like a child…forcing me to reach deep down and regain my creativity bone. Through presentations and lectures I have realized that if you don’t somewhat entertain your audience then your message will be lost. I have been challenged throughout this course and am now slowly starting to tap into my inner child and remember what it was like to believe I could do anything.
