1 week to go, Folks

Tomorrow morning when we wake up my wife will have 1 week to go before we meet our son Talon, hopefully. She is being a real trooper through all of this but geez I feel bad for her.

I am on my BEST BEHAVIOR because my wife ratted me out to my mother in law and she texted me some things that I won’t repeat Lol So now I don’t fuss, argue, eye-roll, or even let out a sigh anywhere near her. At all. I hold my tongue, I hop up and get whatever she needs. She is carrying my boy. I need to help out more. I thought I was but apparently I wasn’t. Sorry but I do have 3 other kids to tend to so if I screw up here or there, I don’t see a reason to run to your mom and tell on me. Deep breath!!!

We have flights booked for the few that will be coming over next week. We have their bedrooms already for them. I know Lindsay will be coming in from Tokyo so she’s going to be exhausted. I asked what she was doing over there and she said research. I don’t want to know. I’m not supposed to “worry” about the business stuff anymore because it’s all “handled and STFU about it”. That’s what Lindz told me via text a few days ago.

My job is full-time dad in waiting. I’m here to make my wife’s life a perfect whatever it is you have to do. I’m getting a little nervous though. She has no idea what she’s in for during the birth. I don’t either I just know that my hand was squeezed until my knuckles were white and I did my very best to stay calm and not freak out or pass out.

Yes I’m going to be in the delivery room. AND NO OTHER family or friend will be. That’s my wife’s choice. That means no creep-a** father-in-laws all up in there taking photos and staring at my wife’s vajayjay Lol If you don’t get that reference, just comment me and I will explain. I’m laughing just typing that one!

Only me and our medical team are allowed in. Every one else can wait outside and if she poops on the table that’s not public knowledge Lol I’m not supposed to say if she does or doesn’t. I already know her face will be a mess and she’s going to be exhausted right after. I am bringing up some extra pillows because we will be in there a day or two. It all depends on how it goes.

We did a quadruple check on his nursery. We have everything and if I forgot something Lindsay will go to the stores and stock us up anyway. She usually buys us 3 months worth of stuff for each new baby Lol It is very helpful and we really appreciate it.

Drew is in charge of telling the entire family and friend group everything. He said he made a list on his phone or who to call and how to text.

Now it’s just a waiting game. And boy am I impatient. I just want to see his little face and hold him. Ryan was my first boy and I never got to see him or hold him. He passed away a few months before he was born. This is my first biological child and not my last. We do want 1 more and we want to adopt 1 more but not for a few years. My wife said I am CUT OFF MISTER and I’m also not allowed to talk to my adoption attorney Lol She is serious. I agree. 4 kids, man. Who would have thought this would be my life.

I am so focused on my home life I only have 3 things written down for what I want my next chapter to be. I don’t want to divulge my list yet because after my son’s birth that may all change. I’m okay financially neither of us have to work, ever. I still want to keep busy with something though and so does my wife. We will figure it out.

Right now and for the next 7 days, life is all about my wife.

Wish me luck?!??!??
