So, as you probably know, Amanda is due any day now, and we’ll be very soon experiencing the joys and frustrations of going to the hospital and coming home with a bundle of ‘change your life’. In this context, I’m going to open a few channels and close a few as well. For starters, I’m putting together a mailing list for communication only on this topic. Rather than post all over the public web. Please let me know if you would like to be on this mailing list. We’ll be sending out news and announcements as well as calls for help. Because there’s a strong chance we’ll want or need help. Some of you are already on the list, whether you know it or not.
Along those lines, one of my jobs as Dad is to be the gatekeeper. I’ll be the one who has to tell people that they can’t come over, or that they have to leave. Don’t take it personally. Also, we know you’re going to want to see the new youngling, but it would be -really- helpful (and more likely to get me to say yes instead of no) if you can also offer some support in visible or tangible forms. Anyone who brings us a meal, offers to mow the lawn, wash the dishes, do the laundry, or otherwise do a small or not so small errand is going to receive eternal gratitude and more time with us.
