How being a parent changed my views on --
Parenthood has changed my view of other parents. After my wife got pregnant, I watched and specifically studied younger parents (not in age, just in parenthood). I took copious notes and thought I understood what it was going to take. I was dead wrong.
I truly had no clue as to the life disruption caused by having a child. I realize this may sound juvenile, but the real thing just ain’t what my mind originally played out. The most basic life activities all change. Just going to the convenience store requires a ten-point checklist to ensure we aren’t missing anything. We’ve learned that you can’t just have one sitter, you need at least three backups for a night. And the planning must commence well in advance.
Trying to arrange for a sitter a week prior just won’t cut it. My wife and I are committed to dating each other post-childbirth, and so having our together-time is extremely important to us. We’ve certainly had to fight for it but found that when we do prioritize our time together, it soothes our souls. We aren’t just partners, after all, we are lovers. And the romance must continue so we can be the best partners our son could ever ask for.
Having mentioned these challenging ways in which I didn’t see how parenthood would impact me, I also want to call out the good. My wife and I have become so much more committed to our relationship. There is no doubt our son is now the sun. We certainly revolve around him. However, we have become disciplined to ensure we are revolving hand in hand around him. What does this look like? We have a date night two times a month. We ensure we have time together after we put him down. We’ve got an international trip planned that gives us seven days away and puts him in the eager hands of his grandparents. Little things have now become big things when honoring each other. We take fewer things for granted. We have become closer than we were before parenthood, and ironically, it’s probably due to our shared obstinance more than anything else. We love our son, but we also realize how important and committed our love is for each other.
“THE GREATEST GIFT FOR DADS OF ALL AGES AND IN ALL STAGES.”
“Your path is your own.” “No one can tell you how to walk it.” “Responsibility lies with you.”
These are just some of the important conversations we are gently reminded to embrace within Notes to My Son.
With parenting, there are so many things we need to do and take care
of, but what conversations are we having to be sure we truly impart the
wisdom of our lives into our loved ones? Are we having difficult
conversations, asking hard questions, and talking about things without
Don’t let another day pass by without this book.
