My wife and I are not the kind of people who have lamented our kids growing up. The truth is, Sara and I were on the fence about having kids at all until about a decade ago it kind of smacked us upside the head- if we were going to have the ‘full human experience,’ parenthood should be a part of it.

Then? BAM! Two little Baranowskis at once and we were in the weeds. I think we’ve done OK and we’re very grateful to be raising them here in Iowa Falls, where they have a pack of other kids their age in the neighborhood and a corresponding set of parents who we know will look out for them when they are running the streets.
