I forgot to post yesterday, this is still new to me so you get two posts today. I have been thinking a lot here lately about being a father. My wife and I’s first kid will be here anyday now and it’s kind of intimidating. Am I fit to be a father? I still feel like a kid myself sometimes. I’m sure this stuff goes through every first time father’s mind.
When I was little, I thought my dad knew everything and had all of the answers. He was and still is an amazing dad but him and mom didn’t have all the answers and make every right decision. They were just making it up as they went along, doing the absolute best that they knew how. That’s what my wife and I have to do. Follow the example of our parents where they excelled, try to be better where they struggled, work together as a team, and be willing to admit it when we make a mistake.
To sum it up, yeah I’m scared about being a parent. How could I not be? At the same time I’m looking forward to it. My life will probably never be the same but I think it will be for the better in almost every way.
I’ll miss the sleep though.
