Locke and Christina Wolf make the adjustment from a life of bars and parties, to stability and responsibility after the birth of their first child.
I wasn’t quite taking care of myself, I should say, as good as I am now. I think having a kid definitely I think helped me out, in a lot of good ways.Christina:
Never in a million years would I ever thought that a year ago today that this is where I’d be right now. In school, working, and taking care of a six-month old. Definitely did not think that would be going on in my life.Christina:
Locke and a friend of his came into the skull and as soon as I looked at them I was like these boys better have ID’s! Because I had no idea he was Chris’s son, when I first met him. And, I just kind of blew it off as if it was just two kids coming in for a glass of water, whatever.Locke:
You know I went in there when I was 18, 19, when I first figured out she was working there. I had no idea who she was, had no idea how old she was, I didn’t really care. But I was after her, I was on her tail from the get go.Christina:
I don’t know. We just really work together really well.Locke:
We ended up making a relationship out of it. And it’s lasted; it’s been a good one.Christina:
I found out I was pregnant; I was actually at the Smiling Skull, scrubbing the women’s restroom.Locke:
At first I was really worried, I didn’t know I was prepared, some of my habits are not ones to have around children.Christina:
All your time is focus on the baby, but now that he is starting to sleep longer and he’s getting a little older, it’s a lot easier. We have been able to find that nice balance.Locke:
Right now it’s just kind of like, tickle the baby, talk to the baby or feed the baby, or change the baby’s diaper. Not that there is anything wrong with that! I can’t wait until we can go outside and throw a football, kick the soccer ball, or play pool together when he is tall enough to reach the pool table.
