Nice post. Professional work may seem rewarding externally (from other people’s eyes looking at you) but what really counts are the lives of people that are immediately around you i.e. your wife and children. As fathers, our success is measured really on how we have raised our children and loved our wife.
Congratulations on the double addition to your family. I am sure the joy and exhilaration starting and handling StackOverflow / StackExchange will pale in comparison with the feeling of your children tugging at your heartstrings.
