Fatherhood…A journey to Cherish!!
Two and half years ago, I was promoted to the designation of being a Father. The thought was wonderful to start with but was a bit petrifying also deep inside. It was big responsibility in terms of handling a new life and shaping it ahead with all the care and affection. But, after a few days the feeling got sink in and I was back to normal self. I realised that we just need to be a bit on our toes to outsmart new gen kids and we are done with it. The kids are smart enough to find all the ways to keep you alarmed up and running. You just need to find ways to fit in some resting time. Rest everything falls in place and Fatherhood is cool for a new father like me.
On a serious note, one thing and the only thing that changed in me was the level of patience and perseverance. In this hurried life, you need to be bit patient to handle the new born and growing toddlers. Though mummas do a great job handling all the tantrums and requirements for the baby, I think fathers step in when mummas loose patience. When there is a breakdown in the main engine, the support center gets activated and that is the principle I also work upon. Yes, there will be sleepless nights and some hectic days of mild illness and problems, as there is a phase that kids go through. There, I learnt to be a bit patient and calm. We sailed through that period as a family. Though the boat rocked a few times, but I would say we handled it well and now we have a two and a half years grown up toddler who sings with us, dances with us and is all the reason for our happiness.
On this Fathers Day, I would like to thank all the Mummas who make Father’s job easier and would assure all the kids who look ahead to their Fathers that they are going to have a great future. The new generation Dads are cool and looking forward to have fun with their kids at every stage of their life.
Okay time to rush as it’s India vs Pakistan today. Another Fathers Day special.. 🙂
