It is 2017. This question can mean ANYTHING now. There are many experiences out there and many opinions on Fatherhood. But one thing is for sure is that Fatherhood can look like this. How do you have this? I can share more about that in another post. Here is a little peek into what Fatherhood looks like in no particular order…
You can see many sleeping pictures. Fatherhood is very tiring when you are the one getting up very early, commuting, and working/ being out of the house for more than 8 hours.
You can’t see a dad who never hung out with babies prior to Fatherhood, but it shows it comes naturally.
You can see a Father’s love.
You can see happiness.
What you do not see is the hard work to keep the family safe and fed, the calm during moments mommy is not, and the moments where Dad keeps an eye on the little guy while mommy sleeps.
What you don’t see or hear about very often is that daddy feel hopeless and sad when baby prefers mommy. Or feels upset when he can’t make baby feel better when they’re teething.
Fatherhood is seen as silly, negative, lazy, or deadbeat in many people’s lenses. I want to show you the positives and the reality of what Fatherhood can be.
Ben, I love you very much! Thank you for all you have done and are doing for Liam and I. Parenthood brings out positives and negatives within ourselves, however having a person by your side that is here for the long run makes all the growing and learning easier. Parenthood is hard work! I am blessed and extremely grateful for you! We have been through so much and Liam has been a great blessing to both of us.
