When I was in 6th grade, someone asked me, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" and my response was, "A Dad."
I attribute a lot of that to the great relationship and friendship I have with my Dad. I also have always loved kids. One of my favorite titles in this world is "Uncle Andy."
But after announcing to family and friends that I was going to be a father and then having the world spin out of control in a different direction, I was determined to get back to that possibility sooner rather than later.
