The Waiting Game

There are just two months to go now, give or take, until we take the first tentative steps on parenthood. It is something that I am looking forward to as most of you know. However, it is bizarre the emotional rollercoaster that we run on the journey through to the finish line.

The expectation and excitement is sometimes (the closer the time gets to birth the more frequent this is) interchanged with impatience. Strange as that is. It is just a case of wanting to see the Kid out in the real world rather than just on the USG. The logical part of my brain understands that this is a process and the gestation period on average is nine months. I get it, I really do.

Patience is a virtue, they say. So, patient it is.

Hi Rob. I hope all goes well. I love reading women blogger's account of labour. Maybe you should write yours, as in, from a man's perspective. :)

girlsgonechild.net and keluarganugraha.net recently had a birthing post. Delightful!

Best of luck for the three of you.

The future of my world at least :D

With a bit of luck the Kid will be a better man than his old man!

To the future.
