Daddy's ready!

The song “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” came on the other day and Tom and I were discussing it. For those of you who haven’t heard this song, the first verse says…

He didn’t have to wake up
He’d been up all night
Lying there in bed and listening
To his newborn baby cry

He makes a pot of coffee
Splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss
And says it’s gonna be ok

It won’t be like this for long
One day soon we’ll look back laughing
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
It won’t be like this for long

After we listened to that verse, Tom says “I can’t wait for that part”. I look at him a little confused and say “You can’t wait to lose sleep because of a crying newborn???” He says “Everyone has always said that a baby is going to change everything. I’m just really looking forward to having my entire world turned upside down”.

I’ve known for a long time that I was ready to be a parent. But after hearing him say that, I think he’s more ready than I am. This might have been the sweetest thing he’s ever said. Every time I think of those words coming out of his mouth it makes me smile. Although, I kind of wish I would have got those words on tape so I can play them back for him after a week of no sleep. But, I know that baby Thomas and I really lucked out when we came upon this guy. I can’t wait to watch him be a daddy! I have a feeling I’m gonna learn a lot.

This was so sweet. You guys will be the best parents and I can't wait to be an "Aunt" to Baby Thomas.

He will be the best dad, and like the song says, it won't be like that for long. I remember telling my mom when I had Booker that I wasn't getting any sleep, but for the 1st time in my life I didn't care because I had him.
