Being a father can be a wonderful thing, once you get past all the gross stuff, all the stressful events, the loss of privacy, and the bewildering numbers of ways you can screw it up. But other than those few things, fatherhood is wonderful.
One thing that will amaze you is how quickly the years will fly. My oldest daughter is almost 14, which means I have five short years with her before she leaves the nest. That’s not enough time! The time you have with them is short and precious — make the most of it. Spend as much time as you can with them, share your passions with them and make it quality, loving time.
