I told SWMBO that I'd be ready for kids when I got my HC into the single digits but based on the experience of some of our friends she conned me into believing it was likely to take a while and we should get it rolling sooner. Of course, it happened immediately, and there's not one but two kids in there. I blame the golf gods.
Kidding aside, I couldn't be happier or more excited. I can't stress that enough. Of course there's also terror, but mostly excitement. Really.
But since this is a golf forum, I'll get to the point. It works out well, I suppose, that they're due in July and my annual pass at my course expires in June. I'm trying to convince SWMBO that it will be good for us to have some time away, i.e., that I'll play golf once a week at the crack of dawn, back before 10am, and then take over the kids so she should take some time for herself, etc. Those conversations do not go well. From those with experience, be honest, is my golf life over?
