I always have to smile when I see this photo. It is me and my first child, Nick, back in 1988. I was leaving hospital that day with a brand new baby, and I was pretty happy about it, as you can see.
I have to smile because I think about how ridiculously young I was, and how supremely confident I was that everything was going to be ok. The confidence of the truly ignorant. I had no idea what I was in for.
But I guess everything did turn out ok, because we just celebrated Nick’s 28th birthday on Wednesday night. He is a Dad now, himself, and has been through (is going through) his own transformation into parenthood.
And of course I have to smile at the bad 80’s hair 🙂
