So, you’re gonna be a Daddy!
Well firstly, congratulations! Well done..
You have done the hard part, the blood sweat and tears has paid off! Atta Boy
Actually, wait that’s another achievement altogether, you have done the easy & the fun bit. The bit that even a monkey could and does do.
Sure the next few months or however long it is until the birth will be exciting and the first few days after the little ones arrival are guaranteed to be fun & surreal!
But take a good look at yourself in the mirror or as is the norm nowadays snap a selfie. Keep that image, keep it as a reference of how good, (ok reasonable) healthy & rested you used to look.. that’s right, I said used to look...
Then shuffle slowly towards the edge of that cliff my friend. The cliff that leads directly to the never ending free fall of Daddy doom, otherwise knows as fatherhood...
The no sleep, zombie existence, did I eat today? Two odd shoes wearing, have I even got socks on plunge!
While your in the midst of that free fall, try to take a few minutes to remember just who exactly suggested the great idea of having kids?
That will be important later.
I don’t say this to scare you, to seem negative or to appear unloving towards my own double child predicament. Kids are in many ways, amazing! But I do think that pregnancy (yes you are technically pregnant also) is all to often wrapped up in lovely pink or blue bows, sugar coated beyond recognition of the reality!
So I say this prepare you! So many people will jump to tell you that becoming a father is life changing, that it gives you a purpose and is incredibly rewarding... and yes it is, on occasion.
But it’s essential to have your eyes wide open, for everyone’s benefit!
No one prepared me, I mean sure they joked bout how you would know your arse from your elbow & bandied the old ‘shock to the system’ comment about, but no one took the time to actually explain just how hard, intensive and life changing this would be.
What is it the Boy Scouts say? Be prepared, well it’s only fair that you are given a decent chance to be prepared and to do that we need to Boy Scout the hell up!
