There are a lot of things that you won’t know or the parenting classes won’t tell you when you become a new dad. But here are 8 things I wish I knew.
So much has happened in the last year. It almost seems to be hard to squeeze it all into a letter on your 2nd birthday.
As a dad, there are times that we tend to feel alone in fatherhood. But what a Southwest flight attendant did during a recent flight, made me realize that no matter where we are, we are all apart of a brotherhood of dads.
The older that my kids get, the more I see me in them. Not only does it make me proud, but it also makes me very terrified.
This holiday season, it is difficult to teach my son that there is a difference between, “I need it” and, “I want it.”
It has been months leading up to that night when I was kneeling before him asking him if he was going to listen to me. Crying as he said he would, realizing that his actions have resulted in yet another Emergency Room visit, and to his despair, more stitches.
Maybe a good quality in a leader is taking the advice of others and making it a reality. Maybe I need to be the leader that I want my son to be.
