Fatherhood

RAISING A DAD – 5 July 2013

The secret’s out

We’re heading away for a few days to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday and my beautiful wife is starting to feel the effects of this pregnancy so keeping it secret from the family is no longer an option.

I’ve tried to subtly setup FaceTime chats and meet ups with my parents and siblings…so far they’re scuppering all my plans.

I FaceTime my parents first and they’re thrilled. Mum squeals, dad smiles and we’re underway.

My in-laws arrive and are told the news. Mum in law is overjoyed, father in law starts with “can you pay the mortgage?” and is now pacing the floor.

It all feels very real now
