I Blinked and My Son is a Father
Parenting was not a job that I sought. It was my spouse who was insistent that he wanted children and after years of togetherness, I finally came to the conclusion that that desire was not going to go away for him. I warmed to the occupation after I had undertaken it, and went on to raise four boys. Now, with almost no warning, I am finding myself very much in love with his child. Thankfully all is well and they will surely make it through the sleepless nights and endless anxieties that are a part of bringing up baby. But this is his first birthday as a father, and the newness of his new role has not worn off. So happy birthdays all around.
