It’s Father’s Day at the Dads Round Table

First Kiss B&WIt is Father’s Day soon, and this week on the Round Table we want to discuss and celebrate fatherhood in its many forms.  I know that we did not have the beautiful privilege of carrying our children during pregnancy, but there is something inexplicable that happens to a man when he first holds his child.  I know that I enjoyed being the father of young babies more than I expected.  I took all the negativity in my childhood and poured it into loving my kids.  I gave my daughter her first kiss when she was born, and make a point to keep kissing her every day.  As she is beginning to get older, and branch out on her own, I worry about the years to come when she will no longer need her daddy. 

In this week leading up to Father’s Day, I want to remember the highly stressful and sleep-deprived early years of being a dad.  For those of us who can fondly look back on those days, let us remember our kids when they were little and truly needed us.  For those of us with those tiny newborns, be encouraged in the knowledge that it does get better.  For our community members who are not dads, share with us your favorite memory of your dad, grandfather, or of your husband being a father to your kids.  

 Join us this Wednesday at 6PST/9EST for our #DadsRT Chat. 

We will be chatting about the ups and downs of fatherhood, and the lessons learned so far!

The Beginning
About ManvDadhood

I am a man, and by my wife’s standards that makes me flawed. My challenge to parents, and to myself, is not to teach my kids about the kind of person I hope them to become one day, but to become that person today.
