I have a daughter on the way

That’s right, my wife is pregnant and it’s a girl

Why yes, yes I am excited! 🙂

At this stage she’s 5 months pregnant. It’s going well. I’ve let people know personally and on Facebook, but it’s only now that I’m getting around to updating my blog with the good news and letting the wider world know.

And recording it for posterity.

Finally becoming a new father at the age of 53 is going to be quite a challenge. But as the byline of this blog says:

Everything in your past has succeeded in bringing you here today.

This is the path I’ve been on. Here I am. The future is going to be exciting!

Naturally I’ve had a lot on my mind the past five months. One of the things I’ve been thinking about is the ‘posterity’ bit.

My daughter is going to read this blog in years to come. She’s going to learn of my journey. She’s going to know who I am in ways many other fathers have never been able to share.

I owe it to her – and to myself – to make sure it’s worth reading.

In the near future I’m going to remove the rubbish ‘steam of consciousness’ content I’ve written that has no real value. But of course I’ll judge that on a case by case basis.

And as the years go by from this moment on, I’ll be writing for her, as much as for myself, and for everyone else that might come to read my posts.

I’m really excited about this new chapter of my journey.

Thanks for reading! Please add your own thoughts below.
