Fatherly Stuff: What's Been Going On?

What's Been Going On?


Forgive me, friends for not keeping my blog up to date. A lot has been going on in our household.

As some of you already know, we are expecting our 2nd child and we are nearing week 36, a.k.a “The home stretch”. We’re running down the last leg of the track and we can see the yellow tape!

As you can imagine, there is A LOT going on.  The bigger my wife’s belly gets, (so does her need to rest) the less energy she has and for a full time kindergarten teacher and a mother of a fully developed, energetic 4 year old,  keeping your head above water can be quite the challenge.

This is where daddy comes into the picture *takes off glasses, runs into a telephone booth and bursts out in color coordinated, spandex outfit with a cape*

Replace the “S” with a “D” and you get the picture

The scales that typically balance our daily chores have suddenly shifted on my end and I have been doing my best to not just carry that extra weight, but to hold it high above my head like a determined Olympic power lifter. As challenging has this experience is, I still consider myself very fortunate to be able to be such an integral part in helping usher in a new life.

This experience has given me so much to write about and I’m looking forward to sharing with you….that is, as soon as things settle down.  Thank you all for the continued support and stay tuned!
