It’s no surprise that having children changes your life completely, but what is sometimes unexpected is how it changes you, as a person. In Delivery Man, David Wozniak (played by Vince Vaughn) is an underachiever whose mundane life gets turned upside down when he discovers he’s the biological father of 533 children. This unexpected discovery leads David on a heartwarming journey as he struggles with the decision to reveal his identity to his children while ultimately finding his true self along the way.

one of my best friends from college, a dear friend of mine, just posted last week that she lost her baby girl. it was her first baby, just 5 months old. my friend is a state away and we haven't kept in touch as much as we wish we could, but it shook me. i was heartbroken for her. it's every mother's nightmare to lose a child. i have talked to many moms who admitted to all of the horrible scenarios we play out multiple times daily that end in the worst case. the mere idea of one day not having these kiddos in my care has made me a different person....more
I sometimes wonder who I would be if I hadn't had children. I don't believe that the experience of having kids is the end-all and be-all of existence on this earth- but I do think that those of us who choose to have and/or raise children are forced, really, into putting a whole lot of thought into who we are, what we stand for, and what really matters in life. We learn pretty quickly that kids are like little mirrors, mimicking our words and actions when they're young and mercilessly questioning and critiquing them when they start to get older....more
You don't realize who you are.You don't realize what a selfish cow you are.You don't realize how much time you waste.You don't realize how little everything you "care" about matters.You don't realize what love is.Until you have a child. I remember making a Facebook post to the effect of "why didn't anyone tell me it would be like this?! the love!" a month or so after my son was born. Immediately there were loads of responses from moms saying things like "would you have understood before?" and "you don't 'get it' til you're a parent" etc....more
What would you do if one day you found out you had 533 children? That's exactly what happens to David (Vince Vaughn) in Delivery Man. David donated to a sperm back quite a few years ago and due to a mix-up in the lab, he is the biological father of 533 children. The kicker is that these 533 kids want to know who David is....more
You know, growing up and even in my early twenties I never really thought much about having kids. In fact, I don't know that I really gave it much thought until I got pregnant on my honeymoon with my first born son. And even then, the reality of the full responsibility of what you are embarking on doesn't fully hit you until you walk out of the door of the hospital, with a new baby in tow and no one stops you....more
"You're smiling now Mom, but just wait until I Ninja Slap those elderly cheeks." "Is that so, Grasshopper? Or have you met your Ninja Slapping match!"[/caption] When the nurse placed my first swaddled newborn on my chest right after I gave birth, I believe the first words out of my mouth to my husband were, "I am so f#@ked." And I still feel that way. Because before kids I was pretty invulnerable....more
Before I had kids I was bored a lot. I don't think I realized I was bored - I probably thought I enjoyed taking long naps and sleeping until noon and spending all my money on shoes. But it turns out I don't actually enjoy any of those things all that much. Well, I mean, obviously I still like naps. Everyone likes naps (except the children who actually should be taking them)....more
Now that I’ve crossed the threshold of my first year of motherhood, I can look back on it and see the beauty of it. There was plenty of hardship, as I’ve shared countless times through the course of this past year. But becoming a mom has brought so many changes. Not just to my sleep cycle or the fact that being peed on doesn’t gross me out in the slightest. It has changed me....more
I married when I was twenty. I was young, selfish and I wanted things the way I wanted them. I've always had a good heart and I've always been kind, but my life experience was limited. I'd only ever had to care for myself and I'd only ever worried about my schedule. I babysat and I watched after younger siblings, but at the end of the day I wasn't in charge. I handed them back and went back to a life centered on myself. And then at the ripe age of 21, I had my son....more
With just over one year of marriage under our belts, we left all our family, friends and life as we knew it and moved to California. We went all over the west coast that year, exploring everything from San Francisco and Napa to Yosemite and Tijuana. It was fantastic. We jumped in the car and went, whenever and wherever we wanted to. We worked out a lot. Made mojitos and laid by the pool in the euphoria that is humidity free weather....more
