I wanted to take a quick break from running related posts to alert you to some great news in the Runblogger family – baby Ben has arrived! What follows is an excerpt from a post I just wrote (on a new blog called Daddy Duty) about the events of the past few days.
“I didn’t expect to be writing this post right now. Last weekend, my wife jokingly (at least I though jokingly!) stated that she would be going into labor on Friday. I brushed the comment aside, knowing that the due date was still almost 3 weeks away. We still had a heckuva lot to take care of before the baby could come, and Friday was just too soon. Among the catalog of unfinished activities were a new addition to the house (2 kids rooms + the nursery!!!) that still needed to be furnished and inhabited, a car seat that needed to be shipped (c’mon Amazon, get that thing out of Phoenix!!!), and a couple of minds that needed a bit more mental preparation prior to being thrust back into full-fledged babydom. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned now that I’ve experienced three pregnancies, it’s to never doubt a mother’s intuition, and in the back of my head I was prepping for what might happen.“
