So, I haven’t posted an entry yet on the blog about our little geek to be, and that’s because I’m still coming to grips with the idea of being a father. It’s funny how in one day I can go from joking with people that their kids are my favorite kind (not mine) to suddenly finding out that in 6 months you’re going to be a dad. Needless to say that for a guy who was seriously contemplating never having having kids, this change can be quite a shock.
But that being said, there are a number of little things that I’m looking forward to doing and showing my child:
- Sitting on the front porch on a cool spring or fall evening and just watching life go by (unless he or she is like me and it’ll be more watching him or her bouncing off the walls)
- The joys of technology (and with it the frustrations)
- Cities all over the US and the world
- The importance of learning how to think through a problem to determine an answer
I’m sure there are more things, but these are the ones that just popped into my head.
