We’re Pregnant

Well, my wife is. WE, however, are expecting a child this summer!

6 months from now, we’ll be parents.

Upon my finding out that we were pregnant, naturally, I had all sorts of emotions rushing through me. They came from my stomach, from the back of my chest, from my lungs (left then right, I remember noticing). It was a bubbling array of physiological responses to the simply words, “I’m pregnant.”

3 very big syllables.

My emotions have mostly settled, as one would assume, but I still have those surreal moments of sudden realization. It’s like when a loved one passes and weeks later, while driving to the store or something completely mundane, and suddenly it hits you: ‘Oh yeah, they’re gone.’ Except it’s the opposite direction, I suppose. ‘I’m going to be a dad.’ Not someday. Not maybe. But certainly, and soon.

With that in mind, I wanted to reboot this website. I’m rebooting a lot, so why not this old thing? I want to turn this site in to something that my child(ren? 😨) can later read to learn more about their parents, the times we’re living in, and whatever other mumbo jumbo I decide to tether to the time capsule that is the Internet. Especially during such an interesting time!

I have long neglected my web presence for a number of reasons, mostly revolving around privacy. The Internet is a very scary place, and villains of the world have long leveraged it’s information to do great harm. Furthermore, the Internet is practically eternal.

More on all of that at a later date. For now, I must sign off, for the hour is late, and I’ve been told to get my rest while I still can.
