2012: My New Year’s Resolution

by Gavan on January 19, 2012

Hey guys,

I know it’s mid Jan but I think you can still make your new years resolution, can you? Either way I guess I can do whatever I want. I don’t usually get into all this resolution malarky but I was talking with my missus and she has a big list of things she wants to do/change/improve on this year. If you don’t make any resolutions does that mean you think you’re perfect, have no need for improvement or does it just mean you could give a shit about all that stuff?

This year is a little different. As much as I’d love it to continue to be all about me those days are now nearing an end. What does that mean? Well when you can’t just focus on yourself I guess it means you need to start considering someone else. Yes I know I’m married, so of course it hasn’t quite been all about me since Christy and I got together, but it’s still pretty easy when it’s just the two of you. Now you’ve probably already guessed it but we’re about to become three. No, I’m not talking about adopting Christy’s cat…..we’re having a baby, a real baby!! Phew, I said it. It’s crazy when you say it out load ’cause I still feel like a 16 year old trapped it a 41 year old’s body. I guess it’s time I growed up.

We’re almost half way through and so far it’s been pretty easy sailing (says the guy who isn’t the one who’s actually preggers). Well from my perspective we’re doing great. I’ll be honest I was hesitant about talking about this on the site. I’m a fairly private person and deciding to share this wasn’t easy but when Christy kept suggesting I should talk about it I finally gave in and said ok. See what happens when your missus is pregnant?–you can’t argue. I get “You’re stressing the baby out“. I say “He’s an Irish baby, he’s probably not even paying attention“.

I just said he, we don’t actually know yet.

So I guess my new years resolution…..learn how to change diapers.

So there you have it. What a start to the new year, the year of the dragon! It’s unbelievable. I’m going to be a Dad.

Let the games begin.

Congratulations, Gavan and Christy! You’ve got some wondrous times ahead of you. From what I know of you (just from your site, Twitter and youtube), you’re going to be incredible parents!

But yes, Gavan, learn to change diapers. You’ll score MAJOR brownie points later (not to mention the bonding experience). 🙂

All the best to the three of you in 2012!

You just made me cry, Gavan. In a good way.

I’m so happy for that kid, and he/she isn’t even out in the world yet. What a lucky little person to have you two to love him (or her?) and teach ’em the ropes.

Thanks Jenn, that’s very sweet darling, thanks.
