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.
Check out this pretty cool infographic created by oBizMedia.com about the 4th of July, answering every question you ever had about this day. Well, maybe not every question, but it’s still pretty fun!
Red, white, blue, fireworks and parades, stars and stripes, flags, family gatherings, and backyard barbecues, this is how we celebrate our freedom and the 4th of July. Thank God for this beautiful country and all the amazing people that live here today.
After almost two years of using Tumblr, an effortlessly way to pretty much share anything, I decided that I needed to upgrade to something more robust. I’m very thankful for Tumblr, it was a great way to get started in the world of blogging and sharing random thoughts. I remember the day signing up for Tumblr thinking, “What am I going to talk about”. Two years later I have hundreds of thoughts, articles, and insights all online, thankful to Tumblr.
