Awesome day to those gentlemen worldwide that decided not to pull-out …whatever your reason was….lol!
I’m getting hella text messages from people wishing me a happy father’s day…some of them telling me why they believe I’m a good dad. Most of them, I honestly don’t know who they are…I’m just tired of responding with a “new phone who dis” message.
I thank all of those that wished me a happy daddy day – but honestly true fatherhood can be down-right scary. I would imagine that motherhood would be the same. You just don’t want to get it wrong you know? In my specific case of fatherhood, I have 2 very talented and gifted young boys that are aware of themselves and their surroundings. So there’s little wiggle room for error without one of them having an honest conversation on how you need to do better as a person, and a parent. A they get older – the realization of how much of an a-hole I am is witnesses daily through their actions and responses to the general public. I don’t know how to NOT be who i am. I can only mitigate their level of douche-baggery with making sure they love people, and love doing things for people. Hopefully that’ll balance them out. We’ll definitely see.
I love those awkward moments when you get mad at them for doing things that you do – but you know they got it honestly, so you’re really not in a position to say anything because you know you’re just as horrible as they are…..BUT you say something anyway because you’re dad. I heard my dad say it best – one day he apologized to me for not being as good of a dad as he nows thinks he should’ve been..he said “Son, I’m sorry..but as you were growing as my son…I was growing as a dad, and i was constantly met with new things daily, very challenging things…..not like you came with a manual” I respected him so much for that and it taught me a lot as I was just entering the realm of fatherdom.
