I have to say one of the things that has not surprised me is something that has been full of surprises. Being a parent has been a crazy experience, but even before my son was born it has been what I expected. What I expected from having children was it being full of surprises. I knew it was going to be a lot of work being a dad, and I knew it was going to be more than I expected. I knew there was going to be late nights and late night trips to the E.R., it’s just I did not know how many. I knew my life with kids was going to be different that without, but I knew that the adjustment was going to me worth it.
One thing I have to remember is that I am truly blessed to have the gift of two awesome and healthy children. I am also blessed to have the support of an amazing wife who is the greatest mother my children could ever ask for.
I think the biggest surprise I had was how much I would enjoy seeing their joy.
