It's been about a month since I last posted, and as explained in the previous post, you can understand why I've lagged. First of all, no baby has come yet, but we are anxiously awaiting him, i.e., preparing all the baby stuff and reading books about babies and parenting (Babywise, Parenting by the Book, Pre-parenting, etc.). Interesting stuff is out there-some good and some not so good; to say the least, I've learned a lot, but am I ready to be a Papi? Probably not. I relate it to music (big surprise, eh?) for example: the young musician practices alone at home for days, weeks, months, and when it comes to getting in front of a live audience and his blood starts pumping and adrenaline rushes, usually most of that technique goes out the window and he reverts to raw instinct. Only with tons of hours of both live performances and practices, can that musician really apply all those techniques, but he manages to get through it all with that innate ability and some of the other training that has somehow stuck into his muscles. I have a feeling that some good instinct will kick-in once parenthood begins for me, and hopefully, I can apply some of that technique I've learned.
I wonder if this guy (Juan Serrano) ever experienced what I'm talking about:
He might be an exception to the rule.
Anyways, I'll just have to stop and see.
