Gemini dreams

My wife and I are expecting twins sometime in December, a boy and a girl. I am so ready and thrilled for them to come, but at the same time feel spectacularly unprepared. This unknowing and slight abyssal edge (What are we getting ourselves into?!) is probably healthy. I know my life will change irrevocably, and I am ready for that as well. Sometimes the choices we make change us, but sometimes the changes themselves open up a new array of choices.

(My sleep doctor keeps telling me that I’m “doomed.” At least when it comes to sleep.)

Kristin has been an amazing mother already-they have been kicking up a storm of late. She has been taking it day by day with the constant nausea. Some days are better than others. Parenthood is one more lens to see our relationship through, and it’s a nuanced one, with chroma and hue that I’ve never seen before.
