    Random ramblings:

    Our baby is due in Feb, but my wife had high blood pressure last checkup so it will likely come next week. He is expected to be very healthy and no major complications, and we are super excited.
    Just last week we bought a house (our first one), and i've been fixing it up to make it livable. Lots of drywall and flooring work.
    I've been working non-stop and things are just happening so fast this year its crazy. I'm looking forward to the summer since we both have it planned to have off for a long vacation to enjoy our new baby and house and everything.

    Plus, today my old high school friend/best friend/only real friend, called me up and told me some crazy info.
    He had been raised by his step dad, and he never saw his real dad much. Despite his real dad only living a mile away, he only came over to see him twice ever.
    My friend took his step dads last name later on and had it changed in court. His step dad really took on the role of his father and did an excellent job.

    A couple months ago a photo was posted of his step dad when he was younger. Facebook's facial recognition tried to auto-tag my friend. People got to talking about it and it was decided they really did look extremely similar.
    After a bit of talking to his step dad, my friend found out that his mom had been seeing his step dad off and on while she was with his real dad.
    They went out and got a paternity test done, and turns out his step dad was his biological dad the whole time!
    His mind was blown, and his dad was incredibly happy about it.

    I mean, he already was his dad, but just knowing he was also his biological dad was really a mind blowing thing.


    So far 2016 has been extremely eventful and life changing for me. I was just reminded that with all the crazy shit we do here on BHW everyone needs to be able to take time to enjoy the moment as well. With all the hustle out here, don't forget to really feel the moments and make the most of them.

    Hope everyone else is having a good start to their year!

    The money question is ... was the other guy (the false "father", not the step-dad) paying money for the having "his" kid raised all that time? :eek:

    nope, he did not. Usually when you set that up they do a paternity test, but his mom wasn't interested in getting child support.

    She didn't really need it to be honest. :)
    The guy was basically the embodiment of Ricky Bobby..but without the money or driving skills.
