I'm in!

Mr. McWhittle's dad officially christened the blog with his fatherly flair this morning: note the layout, color change, and super fantastic achievement poll. But this did not come without the skeptical eye of mom, as she spent most of my working moments wracking her nervous hands over my revisions, exclaiming at one point, "I don't know how I feel about all of this."

Constant encouragement to be more involved in the blogging life of our son spurred this momentous breakthrough of mine. But the irony of Mom's subsequent vigilance is not surprising. As I imagine with most mommies, they watch, worry, and at times fight like lions to protect their young- even their online images. But Dad, in the spirit of the fatherly tradition of giving Mom a great big headache, bucked her scorn and carried on with his momentous facelift. And was reassured in the end that the flack was worth it, because Mom agreed that the changes were at least a humble improvement. So it seems that I will be a more regular visitor to Whit's online life, if nothing else to be a positive influence in this realm. Let's just hope that the metaphor of Mommy as the protective lioness does not carry through to the extent of eating her young. Ruff!
