Happy Father's Day, Dad! You're Going to be a Grandfather

So my wife and I took my parents out for Father' Day. Being from Louisville, Kentucky, my dad had a hankering for barbeque short ribs, so we took them to a Texas ribs place in the City. We decided Father's Day was the perfect time to let my parents know that my wife and I were expecting.

Yes, that's right. I'm going to be a dad! Some might say I'm a little late at 39 years old, but I think now is the perfect time. My wife and I have spent some good years just with ourselves, and now I think we're ready share in the joys and crazy heartaches of raising a kid.

My wife is a bit of a planning freak, which is good for me, because I'm winging half the things I do. On our kitchen calendar she wrote down a list of symptoms she gets to look forward to every week. Here are some of the highlights:

Week 8- Feeling tired and peeing a lot
Week 10- Will feel very hungry
Week 13- Maternity clothes shopping!!!
Week 15- Remember to do Kegel exercises
Week 19- Lots of weight …
