Not being able to throw my small children up in the air as most parents would. Certainly, my children have not necessarily lacked from it, it’s more what I feel like I have missed out on. But at the same time, you know, taking a log carrier, and padding it so that I could roll my infants into it, and be able to pick them up off the floor without dropping them. But at the same time, I coach my son’s little league, I coach my girls’ lacrosse team now. So, as much as there’re certain things that I can’t do, there’s still a great deal that I’m able to do, and my children don’t know any different. I think to ask them would they prefer I was able to do everything, of course, again the natural reaction is “yes.” But if you would ask them if they really missed out on anything, I think the answer would be “no.”
