As some of you probably already know I’m about to be a Dad real soon. September 4th my wife and I will bring Danny Beckett the III into the world to carry on the legacy. I’m so pumped I can’t even sleep at night. I lay there thinking about all the things I want to teach him, show him, and experience with him.
This past January, my wife wrapped up a pregnancy test in a box and gave it to me for my birthday. What? Yup, a pretty little pregnancy test in a box for my birthday. What a surprise that was after coming back from traveling for two weeks. It was a good surprise though!
I quickly opened up the pink box ( I was a bit curious why it was pink) thinking it was a new watch or something cool….and there it was laying all nice in the tissue paper. My first thought was holly shit, am I ready to be a dad? What about? How am I going to? And then I looked up at my wife, smiled/cried, and realized that I was born for this. What could be more exciting than having my own child that I can love, mentor, and watch grow up to do amazing things in the world!
In my mind there is no greater blessing than becoming a father. It’s the best thing that has ever happened to me – besides meeting my wife, she is a rock star. No startup, no company, no exit, no trip, it doesn’t even come close to being a Dad – you Dads out there know exactly what I’m talking about.
This experience has changed my life more ways than one and I can’t wait to meet the little dude.
