Being a dad is the best thing that can happen to any man. My journey was more difficult than most and it made me really appreciate my role as father. If it had come to me easily then I would not be the father that I am today.
Being infertile has positively impacted me as a man and dad. My new role as provider is one that I have embraced and I love it more than I thought ever imagined. Being a role model for my children has caused me to make so many positive changes to my life.
The 5 Best Things About Being A Dad
One of my favourite things about being a dad is the amazing milestones that we get to share as a family. The first smile, the first tooth and the first steps are just some of the many wonderful moments that make life worth living. Each milestone brings smiles and memories that will last forever.
How Happy They are to See You
Spending time away from your family is hard but coming home it is the best. My two favourite times of the day are seeing my kids first thing in the morning and when I come from work. The smiles on their little faces and how they jump and down when they see me makes my heart skip a beat. It is amazing how much joy we bring into each others lives.
Teaching your children is one of the most satisfying things that you can do. They learn passively by your actions but actively educating them is one of the greatest things about being a dad. Reading to them and teaching them helps to develop skills that will last a life time.
I am a big kid and I love play time. Getting down to your children’s level and playing with them is so much fun. Simple games like hide and seek or stacking boxes create endless hours of entertainment. Seeing them copy you and constantly learning is one of the most satisfying parts of being a dad.
Finally having a purpose in life
Now that I am a dad I finally have purpose in life. Everything that I do is for my children and I love it. Having a direction in life helps me to enjoy life more and be happier. When other people are completely dependent on you it gives your a reason to live.
When you become a father it is time to up your game. Other peoples lives depend on you. You have to take the responsibility and work harder than you have ever worked before. Life has changed but it has changed for the better. Remember that being a dad is the best thing that will ever happen to you.
