January 7th at 4:20 am. That was the exact moment I found out I was going to be a dad.
I had gotten up very early that morning because of business travel, and just as I was exiting the shower I saw my wife sitting on the (closed) toilet.
She had the most amazing smile on her face and her arm was extended with what appeared to be a pregnancy test.
I looked at it with relative alarm because she caught me off guard and said something like, “Is that yes or no?” She laughed and said “it means yes”… and then did a very random high-five.
In our own little way, it was a magical moment that I wouldn’t trade for anything, or had it occur at other time of day.
Lets just say this early morning news prompted lots of excitement, anxiety and curiosity on my flight that morning.
As of this writing we are 3.5 months pregnant and as you may imagine, I’m starting to experience both excitement and fear.
I have no clue how this story plays out, but HelloDad.com is the place I’m going to share it with you.
