Father’s and son’s go together!
I find myself at 42 years old and being a stay-at-home dad the most challenging and often rewarding job of my life. Circumstances in our life’s made it where I could be with Xan. As I am the one home in the day I will say it here first…”HATS OFF TO YOU STAY AT HOME MOMS!” You are under-appreciated and most people will never feel the pain of all you actually do. It is not an easy job being first on the scene for all injuries, feedings, potty times, play times and everything else on a day to day basis. As the guy who gets to be lucky enough to stay home with my son I get lots of blessings to. I get to see things most dads miss. I have been able to encourage and help my son in things he enjoys. I have been able to appreciate childhood in ways I never thought possible again. Things as adults we take for granted I can see through his eyes. I don’t think most people stop to notice the simplicity and beauty of ‘rocks’ but my three-year old does. He is excited to show me and share with me. I have to see and feel the excitement of snowfall, rain, sunshine and moon. He has helped make things around me fresh and he certainly keeps me active. I thank god for our son everyday and all the blessings he has brought into our lives. Oh and one more thing! I happen to know I am me. Feel free to reblog me if you so feel inclined! I am to busy with my son and being a stay-at-home dad to worry about people stealing my life. YIKES!!!
