My First Child

Let me explain here. I did this blog under the title of the title above on a different blog. This was before I knew what I was doing with this blogging thing. So you get two blogs for the price of one this week. Enjoy

To those of you who have never had a child or you are not currently expecting this will be boring. Back in December we found out that we were expecting our first child. What a mix of emotions. The excitment that you are finally going to be a parent. Then realizing you are going to be a parent! You mean I am responsible for this child. Oh my! For those of you who know me I am sure you are confident that I will do a good job but I am sure there are some like my parents and inlaws who want to watch me eat my words. I am the type of person who is always telling other that I can do it better than the next parent and that I will break the mold of parenthood and all publications will be calling me and saying how do you do that. Let me see your bag of tricks. Well when I do create my magic and you want some don't get mad when it doesn't work because what works for me won't work for you.(LOL)
Now according to the studies if you can keep a plant alive and then move to a pet and keep that alive you will be a good parent. So if you go by that I will be a great parent because my cat is still alive and loves to sleep beside me every night. ( he doesnt't sleep beside Nickie and she is the big cat lover, Ha).
The shock is amazing when you do find this news out. Of course we got on our soapboxes and let everyone know we were expecting and everyone has been already so supportive. It's a good feeling and it will be neat to see how God provides for us through family and friends.
So do keep us in prayer and hopefully my blogging will get better.

Derek,you do make me laugh. Your proving days will soon be here and may be birthing as I write. I'll be checking back to see if you and Nickie have joined the ranks of the young and restless!
