With our son scheduled to arrive in the next few weeks, I’m starting to feel more and more anxious about becoming a father. Combined with the stress surrounding the recent holidays, I think I’ve worked myself into a tightly-wound ball of nerves.
To top it all off, everyone seems to have an opinion on what we have to look forward to in the next few weeks. People with grown children, young children, and even some people without children seem to be more than willing to share their opinions. I’ve heard both sides of every story (twice) and listened to so many scenarios about what we should expect, that I’ve had to start blocking it all out.
I think we both have a pretty good grasp of what’s about to happen and only wish for a healthy, happy child.
