Next Tuesday (the first of September) marks our seventh anniversary, or, to put it another way, our second wedding anniversary. Also on the 31st of August our beautiful daughter is 3 months old.
Yup, I’d say things are going well. I actually couldn’t be happier*. I can point to two memories which have that golden glow about them in my head from just the two years since the morning of our wedding – 1) walking to the reception, laughing and joking with my family and friends and 2) being handed a towel-wrapped, bright red baby… who promptly pooed all over the floor.
Matrimony, fatherhood – states I can recommend. If you’re unable to be a father, motherhood is no doubt good too. I’m not pressing these choices onto you, of course. I’m not one of those people**. I don’t think everyone should do it just because I think it’s great. But if you’re considering it, and you’re not sure, I can chime in here and say – do what feels right. When they’re the one, you’ll know. The one you want to be with, the one you want kids with.
You’ll know. I knew.
*Well… I could have Sky plus, I guess. And a bit of sleep. Ooh, and a pony!
**I am a bit.
