because it’s something the world just needs less of

i haven’t written much in here about the prospect of becoming a father.  most of the reason for that is because it hasn’t really been public knowledge for very long.  there’s been a few hints at it in some of my posts this month, specifically the first one of this month for dec 2.

everyone so far has asked me how i feel about becoming a dad; if i’m excited about it.  of course i’m excited about it.  i’m everything about it.  i’m excited, scared, happy, confident, unconfident, everything.  in fact, every time i think about being a dad i feel all of that jumbled together and in equal proportions.  there’s only a few times i’ve felt excitement without an undercurrent of fear or worry.  the first time was seeing my little monster on the ultrasound screen in the perfect outline of a gummy bear.  the most recent time was when i was Christmas shopping.  i went to borders to find something for amanda and then thought about buying my child’s first books.  i seriously cannot wait to read to my kid.
