- Danielle R.
As Danielle recently revealed we’re going to have a baby boy, Graeme! After the excitement of the announcement and celebration with friends and family, I have this really nagging question I have to deal with every day: "I’m going to be a dad, now what do I do?" I don’t need to take vitamins (well at least the prenatal kind), I don’t need to gain weight (but all the ice-cream is delicious), and I don’t need a special pillow so that I will sleep on my side. Being a left brained guy, Danielle bought me a father’s survival guide.
|The perfect book for my male brain. Kind of a “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” for guys.|
This book taught me some very pertinent information:
- The baby will not come out looking like the babies on TV, but more like an alien. Not to worry though he will grow out of it, I just need to make sure he has 10 fingers and toes.
- I know how to test his reflexes (you know he has to be ready to play sports)
- And most importantly, when he’s old enough, how to read him Sports Illustrated.
I can’t wait to be a dad, but right now mom gets to do all the work. Well I do get to paint the nursery, put together the crib, assist in the nesting itch of Danielle with other home projects, and take out the trash …all the time (she has a thing with smells).
Dad to be,
