It’s still sinking in. We’re going to have a baby. We’re going to be parents. We are going to be responsible for raising a contributing member of society who is hopefully not an asshole. What?! That seems to be a lot to ask.
There’s definitely something to this theory that God gives you 40 weeks (because we all know 9 months is a lie…more like 10 months…) to get adjusted to the whole idea of it. Not that we’ll be ready, I don’t think you’re ever ready. None of my friends were ready either (except with their second, then they kind of knew what they had coming to them). So I’ll give myself scheduled time to fret and worry and stress about what kind of parent I’m going to be, and the rest of the time I’m going to relish in the fact that WE’RE HAVING A KID!
Holy crap, we’re having a kid.
