Sounds like a good plan.

Having done the family thing already, let me give you all the best wishes and prayers for the adventure to come. My kids are grown and out-and-about, and I love them. I also just plain like them - I enjoy their company, it's fun when they're home again, and I admire the adventures they are having out there on their own.

Anytime I had to put down an airplane part to change a nappy or wipe a nose was a good time, and well worth it. So were the times I got up in the middle of the night for comforting, cleaning and feeding. Every minute was worth it. My best advice: get up in the middle of the night, and be there for your wife and child. It will seem hard when you do it, but that won't be the hardest part of being a family.

Raising kids is a lot like building model airplanes: assemble the parts, admire the look, but remember that the day must come when you stand on the hill and let them go!

Yours, Greg
