Fatherhood is a great thing.
- You have the opportunity to be a kid without the rules and restrictions.
- You are the biggest person in a someone else's life. There is nobody stronger/smarter/cooler than you until such time comes when everyone is stronger/smarter/cooler than you.
- You have the ability to give someone all you've learned.
- You learn although you are not a total fuck up you can really screw things up.
- You are reminded what selfless love really is.
- The worries of work, society and other general downers of the world are really not that big a deal when you have ice-cream for dessert. The simple things are usually the best
Yes this sounds ripped off of a poster or some other annoying thing that you'd find in a Hallmark Store but I see so many fathers who don't realize how important they are. Granted I'm not perfect in anyway and it took almost loosing a child for me to realize what my children mean to me. Fatherhood is not entirely a state of bliss it's a lot of work and if you don't cry you're not doing it right.
