Feeling the Crunch
The first month of 2010 is past us. It was a good month, filled with activity and fun. As February begins I am beginning to fill a little overwhelmed. I have agreed to take on a LOT of items at work and as I look at my list I see 9 major deliverable this month alone.
When I say major, I mean that they are all goin to be either highly visible, strategic, or both.
As a father, I don’t feel the impending arrival like Eriko seems to. She spends every moment with this mysterious creature, whereas I am only reminded when her belly knocks me over. With Jerry, I spent more time in shared anticipation - but when he was born it took me several months to feel close to him.
I suspect this child will be the opposite - not until I see the face will the full reality strike me, but knowing what an amazing thing it is to bond with a child I will want to start immediately.
