Today is December 6th, 2007. My baby’s official due date is June 6th, 2008. I decided to start this blog as an effort to express my thoughts and feelings on this whole expectant fatherhood thing, beginning six months before baby, and continuing (at least) six months after I become a daddy. Hopefully people will read this and maybe other expectant fathers will want to enter into a dialogue about the whole thing. Maybe this blog will become the first blog on Oprah’s Book of the Month Club. Maybe I will be spending the next 12 months talking to myself. Most importantly, I would like my child to one day be able to read my words and understand how big a deal they are to me. I feel like I hardly have a clue about what it takes to be a dad, but it’s not something I take lightly. That’s another thing about this blog: I want it to be something that helps me figure this all out. So whether my audience is one or a hundred, this is me. This is my life from here on out, and I can’t wait.
I’m looking forward to reading. I hope today goes well, buddy.
You’re going to be such an amazing father! Michelle is one lucky lady and that is one super lucky child!
