Last Friday I was reminded in three different ways that being a dad is awesome. First at the Men’s bible study. Second, was when Kelsey sent me a video about “How to Dad” (video below). And, Third was a blog post on Design for Minikind by Erin Loechner about a day in the life of a dad.
Being a dad…a noble calling of which we have a massive responsibility. The tasks are endless, the work never ends, and sometimes the rewards are hard to see. Take heart fellas and enjoy the awesomeness that is being a dad.
Because there will be days of craziness, and if you’re living in toddlerville like we are right now, you might even have a day like we had Tuesday. The morning started with a huge tantrum, and the evening ended with a trip to Noodles of which Rooney took one bite and then screamed at the top of her lungs. It seemed like it might of been hot or spicy, but it was neither. So, we boxed up our meals and went home. And…we’re still not sure what was wrong with her, but she kept whimpering all evening, and wouldn’t eat or drink anything.
In those moments we feel helpless. This parenting stuff is hard. But, for every day like we had on Tuesday, there are probably 100 awesome days. If this sounds like a roller coaster… that’s because it is one…
