Blog Post, number 1:
I will attempt to pour out my feelings about my impending fatherhood here, rather than on a therapist's couch (cheaper). My wife and I have not yet told anyone about her pregnancy since the technical twelve-week mark has not come and gone (though we will be informing the family(s) this weekend, which will be the official mark).
I am excited and increasingly nervous about the prospect of father-dom. I will be looking high and far for advice on NOT creating a mini-me, as I do not consider myself an exceptional role model when it comes to certain facets of my life. The old adage of me making a better life for my child than I had will be a major goal. I also worry, though with less trepidation, that my wife and I will differ on ideas for raising our progeny (discipline, food, TV, etc.). We already disagree on one thing: She thinks I will make a great dad and I worry I will be an amalgum of my own parents, who were older and hands-off.
Anyway, I hope this is a start of something _____ (blank to be filled in later, haha)
