Congrats also. Your life will be different. There will be many sleepless nights and other worries, but it's all worth it.

Still find it a bit strange that you told it first a bunch of strangers though :wink:

Congrats Marc

Your life will never be the same as it is now. It will be better! Truly! Try and get your sleep now, as it may not be possible for awhile in a few months!

And like many have said...the mountains will be there when you're ready to return.

The pickles and ice cream is clever, btw. They should get it

Think of it as an 18 year Big Wall with lots of A5 pitches in store.

Congrats!

BTW, no need to get fat. There will be many opportunities for you and your kid to go do stuff, together, in the great outdoors. Even go climbing....

Congratulations and best wishes, Marc. By the way, don't think all the problems are over once they become 18! You will be a father for the rest of your life, sometimes it is great fun, at other times it may be trying, but upon the whole I recommend it.

Based on his/her dad harping about conservative values at him/her, that will be a given!!! Another vote for Obama it is.

And 16 years down the line... your kid is sick and tired of "old dad" who can't climb like the young ones.

Not long ago we were hiking along, checking out the flowers and lizards and squirrels, and she told me I was the best dad in the whole world, just out of the blue she said that, and wow did it make me feel happy. The neat thing about kids is that they are so innocent, it is refreshing. It's hard to believe, but all of us were that way at one time.


great post. those moments are indeed unbeatable

Good luck convincing my sister of that!
