Baby, it’s cold outside

The end of a vacation is always bitter sweet. While I’m happy to be home, it was 80 when we left and now it’s cold and snowy. And I have to go back to work tomorrow. Bleh. I’ll update with some more details of our adventures later this week, but you are all here today for the big news.

The rumors are true, Becky is pregnant and Elvis is the father.

Er, okay, maybe that’s not totally true, but she is pregnant. Now before you start doing the math and wondering if that’s the reason we got married, no its not. We’re excited and certainly hoping it all turns out well. But speaking for myself at least I’m scared out of my gourd. It certainly didn’t help that we saw some of the worst parenting ever on display at Disney World, but it was nice to know we’re both on the same page as far as how we want to raise our kids.

The thing I’m most afraid of isn’t screwing up the kid, or anything like that, I’m afraid that all of this is going to hurt my writing. How awful is that? But I’m very lucky that Becky is supportive of my writing and I’ve gt friends and colleagues who will keep me accountable and make sure I don’t  fall off the face of the planet writing-wise.

The baby is due in September and I’ll be keeping you all updated as things progress and I’ll leave you with the first baby pictures.

  1. Congratulations!! I wondered if this was going to be your news. 🙂 I am thrilled for you. Having kids only helped my writing – what I gave up in time, I got back in inspiration, somehow. And it had nothing to do with finding my time more valuable. I really was more inspired, the words came to be of better quality, plots and characters fell into place more easily… can’t quite explain it, at least not here. Anyway, don’t worry about that so much. What matters most is being in the habit, and you are. All will be fine!

  2. Wait, I thought you were a virgin…

    Congratulations to both you and Becky!

    Don’t worry about how it’s going to affect your writing, dude. It’s going to change your entire life. For the better. It will be good for your writing, despite the massive sleep deprivation.

  3. That’s WONDERFUL news and brought back great memories to see the little ultrasound! Kids just get better and better and better (and I have teenagers!) Pure blessings.

  4. Congrats. Those things don’t come with instruction manuals, and I remember being just as scared as you are. But you’ll survive, even if there are times when you think you won’t.

  5. Mine’s making it very hard to type right now, but they’re great fun.

    Though with you there as well, it does mean Becky’s going to be looking after two kids…

  6. That’s wonderful, Bryon. Congratulations.

    If you have a girl, just let her know that my daughter already has her eye on Sean’s son. So back off.

    On the other hand, if you have a boy… Well, the more, the better.
