Things you start doing when you become a Dad

  • Sleep a lot less...
  • ...but squeeze in a whole lot more to your day.
  • Cultivate a sixth sense that picks up a stifled cry from the next room in the wee hours.
  • Take more interest in those soppy emails of funny baby pics/clips.
  • Play (and reminisce about) those nursery rhymes you grew up with.
  • Read all those Ladybird classics, especially Puss In Boots.
  • Develop character voices for all those Ladybird story sessions.
  • Overdo the stupid faces just to get a cheap laugh.
  • Brag about your baby's abilities to bore non-parents shitless.
  • Compare your pram with that pram passing by right now...
  • Appreciate your parents.
  • Appreciate the miracle of a new life.
  • Appreciate the good fortune of not having to go through the shit some people have to go through in order to have a baby.
  • Dream about the near future and taking the boy hand-in-hand to watch The Boys.
  • Think about "the family", rather than just me.
Right, that's enough of that. I'm having a hard time coming up with stuff to write, though a lot is going on right I've decided to make the next few posts "pic posts". I think there are some great pics lined up, so enjoy...
