First-Time Mom Friday: Getting Closer

The new year is right around the corner. Not to sell Christmas short or anything, but the event I Iook most forward to is set for the end of January. Some years ago, I was the last person who wanted to get married and have a family. But now that I have found my love, I am happily married and our little family is about to become the two of us plus one.
I give my wife lots of props for these past months. I know she is ready for the next month and a half to fly by. I am excited and nervous. I know very little about taking care of infants and small children, which is why I am extremely thankful for my love and her more knowledgableness. She has faith that I’ll figure it out and do fine- I hope she’s right.
I think what worries me more is how people around us will react. I’m fortunate that my friends and the people I work with are accepting of me and my wife. But there will be those who won’t be.
As I get older, I have less and less patience for arrogance, ignorance, and extreme stupidity. But I don’t want to fight hate with more hate. There’s already too much of that in the world.
But the world is slowly changing and hopefully we won’t bump into too many negative people.
I’ll cross my fingers.
