On fatherhood.

When I was 20, the notion of being a parent was laughable

When you're 25, the notion of being a parent was scary, but not unrealistic

When I was 30, the notion of being a parent was exciting.

I'll turn 31 before my daughter is born, pretty much the exact age I though i would be when Casey and I would have our first child. It's hard to define when i turned the corner from scary to exciting. I think seeing my friends go first helped, but there was also something deeper inside that just clicked one day, quietly that said "I'm ready" (which is probably a laughable comment as well, since i'll probably be turned on my head with this whole thing). Still, it's a chapter in my life i'm very much looking forward to.
