I am a father now. A wonderful and overwhelming feeling.
Wonderful, to see him, feel him, hold his hands, share his smile, think about what would be running in his tiny mind, to watch him sleep, move, hiccup, yawn. Wow, all children are beautiful, but mine is the most handsome (in my eyes :))
Overwhelming, changing diapers, cleaning, bathing, cooking, working, staying up all night for him to sleep, exhausting.
Few things that struck me upon becoming a dad.
- My admiration for the strength of all moms, especially my wife increased multiple fold.
- Respect for the patience of parents, including mine. Mom and Dad, you are the best.
- Responsibility increased
Now its time to become a good dad to my son. Welcome to the world, Son!
