Hell yes I’m nervous to be a dad! Here’s why…

As many of you already know, my wife Kelsey Rose and I are expecting our first child (a daughter) in the next week!  As ecstatic as we are to welcome Isabella Rose into this world, the nerves are finally starting to set in.  The room is painted, I've hung the shelves in the nursery closet and the furniture is all put together which makes this feel so much more real.  A few weeks ago, a … Continue reading Hell yes I’m nervous to be a dad!
