So, I’m gonna be a dad. It’s crazy. I’m the guy that plays in a punk band that sings songs about poop, gets his truck stuck in the mud, buys crazy guitars, and has Batman & Star Wars obsessions. I barely have my own life together, and now my wife & I are going to be responsible for another one? As crazy as it is, I think we’re ready. It’s exciting. We’ve been OK with the thought of having a kid for a while, it just never happened. We’re glad it’s finally happening. Some time in May, we should have a little boy or girl. We go on Saturday for an ultrasound to get an exact date.
Someday, someone is going to call me “Dad” and my wife “Mom”. The idea of it all is just incredible. I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it all along the way. Before I start, any fatherly or parenting advice? Please leave some below! (Not on Facebook to Twitter!)

You all know I’m a Batman fan. You might not know that I’m not really a Superman fan. In this instance, I am indeed a Superman fan. I’m not sure if this is real, in fact the only part that makes me doubt it is the fact that it says it’s a true story. I’m generally not so sappy or philosophical here, but this just hit me for some reason, & I thought I’d share.
I’m not sure why it was on Lamebook, & not sure if it’s even real. Even if it’s not real, we can all get a little inspiration from it (I hope). Please pardon my blogging equivalent of email forwards. I hope this isn’t like the Fred Rogers was a Navy Seal rumor.
I get a few things from it that I’ll share afterwards:

So, this is what I got from it:
- Someone’s always watching you. You’re setting an example for people around you even if you don’t know it.
- You can get an inspirational or emotional lift from someone when you least expect it. It can be form someone you wouldn’t expect, or even some one you’ve never met.
- Don’t be afraid of those who are different than you.
- While it’s great to be humble, it’s OK to be someone’s hero every once in a while.
What did you get from it?
