So, our little girl has a brand new baby brother. You are being really good about it and very helpful to your mom. Now that I’m back to work, she’s going to need you. Should be interesting how it all plays out. All I have to do with this blog is figure out how to write to both of you and keep things at least a little anonymous. That part may be pointless these days, especially considering the blogroll, but it makes me feel better.
So. Hopefully, the both of you will grow up and read all this. For those of you new here, the idea behind this is to just try and record the thoughts on the people your mom and I are right now, instead of the old people you’ll get to know later. 🙂 We’ll see how it works out.
Love you both.
Found out last night that I’m going to be a Dad. Pretty cool stuff. It’s about as official as a home pregnancy test can be. Which is is pretty accurate according to the doc. She goes in this week for a blood test to confirm things. I find myself planning long term all of a sudden and thought maybe it’s time to get some thoughts down on paper. So to speak.
How do I feel? Totally geeked. We’ve been planning and praying for this for a while. As usual, God does things on his time table not mine. All part of that long term lesson on patience he’s got me on.
I do worry about being a “old” dad though. Time to get serious about getting into shape. I need to be able to kick his/her butt in backyard football when he/she is a teenager. And yes, if we have a girl she’s going to learn to play football. Her mom will take care of the girl stuff. No gender stereotypes in my house. 🙂
Want to know the crazy part? I keep wondering when I should be passing out cigars. Is it now or when the baby is born? I’m thinking of doing it now. Be more fun that way.
Now I just have to keep all this a secret until Christmas when we spring it on everyone. Yeah, posting it all on the internet was a good idea. 🙂 Nobody reads this anyway, right?
