Breadcrumbs

So, about five weeks ago I lost my virginity. It wasn’t anything like I’d expected. I mean, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t like what you’d see in the movies—hot steamy raunchy sex like in Mr. and Mrs. Smith; where you both go at it like sex deprived animals, tearing off clothing, bouncing from wall to wall until you both eventually end up naked, and satisfied on the kitchen floor. The kind of sex that you brag to your friends about at school the next morning. But it wasn’t like that at all. Instead, it felt awkward, and he was…

Looking Ahead

It’s been a while since my last post, but it’s time to pick up where I left off, and finish what I started. Last I shared with everyone, I become a dad! The last couple of months have been filled with new-dad jitters; from worrying about whether my son has eaten, to having a bowl movement (I can’t believe that a real thing parents worry about, but I get it, now), and checking to see that he’s still breathing at night.

In between work, school, taking care of my fiancé, and now…

Baby Times Are A Comin

So, this is really happening. No way around it—my fiancé and I are going to become parents in just a few short months. We’re filled with a sense of excitement, and also a bit of the nervous jitters. This is so new to us. This is Amber, my fiancé: She’s carrying our son, Noah Delmar. Noah doesn’t know this yet, but mommy and daddy are working very hard to give him a good home. Both of us are graduate students working on our masters degree. Mommy is majoring in healthcare administration, and daddy…well, he’s pursing an MFA degree in creative…
