Sep 21, 2011 Reality Hits Earlier today an acquaintance of mine said “congratulations on being a future dad”. I said, “thank you, however I do not feel any different.” (Right now, I just go about my business, and add a few baby errands per week to my schedule.) He said, “yeah, I understand..it did not hit me until after my first child was born.” So, how will I feel once he is finally here? I know I will be a happy person, but I wonder what other emotions will come out because of the little guy. Will I be scared and nervous? Will I lose my patience? Will I be overly protective? I do not know, but only time will tell. To all my readers, please share how you felt once you added a member to your family.
