In the months BC (Before Child), I was focused completely on the upcoming birth. It so fully dominated my attention, in fact, that I developed sort of a tunnel vision obscuring any thoughts of life beyond labor and delivery. Now that I'm able to look back on that milestone, I can look forward to the future once more.
My brains were scrambled in the wake of the arrival. I think I did an acceptable job of taking care of my family, but I wasn't good for much else. I was basically floating along in a new-dad funk until I had an epiphany yesterday. Our baby has been around for three weeks already, I have a to-do list a mile long, and I had might as well get on with living again.
