Because I'm gonna be a dad!!!
You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
Congrats. Best advice I can give for the early stages is to throw up the first time you change a stinky diaper, then the wife might let you off the hook for future occurences.
Well, well, well... I guess my inner beliefs that she was around to cover up you being gay are now out the window...
1) Don't use wipes when changing the diaper, turn on the shower and hold the baby's ass to the shower head.
2) Get some dirty magazines. You will need them soon.
Last and most importantly...
3) Don't ever let your child around Greg Parker.
"I used to walk up a hill to and from school in my days", says every Clemson student ever.
Congrats! Unfortunately, kids don't come with owner's manuals. Just gotta learn as you go. One thing is certain, your life will be changed forever... in an amazing way. Nothing like being a dad.

Praying for a full recovery, Marcus. God Bless You!
-Love and raise your children the way you feel is best. Never let someone tell you different.
-Cherish every moment because because it will never come again.
Don't let your babies grow up to be Taters.

Don't let your kids get wasted and start spewing on message boards.

Also...if anything in their life goes wrong, tell them to blame steve spurrier junior.
One small piece of advice...Once the baby is here she'll spend the entire time in the room with you and your wife but don't allow that to happen. Use the nursery! When it's time to go to bed send for the nursery. They'll bring the baby back when it's time to nurse. By doing this you will be able to get some much needed sleep and some of your last sleep for awhile. Congratulations!
Take after its father, eh? Let's not hope too much.
See as a mom, I disagree with that. The human race is about the only mammal I know of that once their baby is born, they push it away into another room. It's a personal choice I guess. Either way, congrats on being a daddy; what a wonderful blessing.
Pray out loud over him/her every day or night.
Only the Father knows how to change dirty diapers!!
When I think about the prospect of having kids one day, I realize, it seems like you get about 7-8 good years. Until they're about four, it's just a ton of work. Somewhere around 11-12, they start to become embarrassed by you, and then they just rebel and don't want to take any advice or follow directions. It seems like signing up to deal with teenagers who will just make things miserable a lot of the time is a questionable decision. Those in between years must be nice, but the prospect of no kids and early retirement could be very nice too.
Anyway, best of luck. Just raise the kid to be a solid citizen and a rational, free thinking person. We don't get nearly enough people like that. If you can succeed there, consider it all a success.
Congratulations!! Enjoy every opportunity to sleep and eat in a restaurant, just the 2 of you, where you'll have no interruptions. Being a parent is amazing, but it's the hardest work at times you'll ever do. You'll worry about things you never imagined you'd be concerned with, and will gain a better understanding of your parents' concern we all felt was overbearing.
Hug them and tell them you love them every chance you get, and never take your role in their life as a Dad lightly. Let them know you'll ALWAYS be there for them, because I'm the only positive male role model in many of my students' lives every day. Let them see you love your wife as well. You can't imagine how much difference just seeing that will make.
You'll figure everything out as you go, as each child is different. Just make sure they understand the importance of discipline and respect, because again, so many never get to see it. They may cry and pout, but as they get older, they'll respect you. Know the fine line between a parent and a friend, and you'll be fine. Lots of bad influences in the world today. Can't shield them from them all, but hopefully our children will know right from wrong when we're not around to help them figure it out for themselves. Again, congrats and best of luck!
also, its ok to say "no".
Get an iPad.
I forgot to add to make sure he/she isn't allowed to continue sleeping with mom through college. It's been known to cause personality and self-esteem issues in them in adulthood...
Good advice. What you're going to realize in the beginning is that Dad gets the short end of the stick and not nearly as much love as Mom. Just be patient...it will balance out. Enjoy the ride...well you obviously already did that.
Big congratulations! It's a great feeling I know.
the first order of business is to get a paternity test
just kidding, Cock at Law....i couldnt resist^^^^^
congrats...for me, it was an event that made me no longer the most important person in the world and the only time ive ever cried tears of joy
You cried? I hope your husband didn't.
Thanks for the advice and well wishes. My wife and I are very excited. Going to listen to the heart beat is an experience I really can't describe. Awesome feeling.
One famous linebacker said " kids , dont smoke crack" i believe him and pass that on to all my children.
