Fatherhood Again, Times 2, Invest In Your Children
I live for these two
Fatherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to me. This is my advice to new fathers, and those scared to become a father. I was in the streets and running around doing everything that I could when I was single. The single life was fun, but then I had my first born. She wasn't planned but when she came into this world God gave me a gift. In this picture she is 8 years old. Those 8 years have flown by quickly. She has brought me much joy and happiness over all those years. Fatherhood is one of the best things that can happen to anybody that is willing to look at things with an open mind. My first born looks up to me and loves to show off what she has learned. Daddy's little girl is an understatement. Life experiences can be tough. We all have a fatherhood gene inside of us that comes when its ready. I didn't think that I was ready to be a father, but my gosh, I became an expert in changing diapers and making bottles and speaking baby talk. A long day at work and coming home to a big smile and a big hug from my baby girl can lift spirits way up!
My second child was born earlier this year, and the joy started all over again. The picture here on my hubpage explains it all. Money is tight, but with the right budgeting money can be extended and last. My second baby girl smiles and smiles and loves to laugh. Her positive energy is a blessing from God who has given me two beautiful girls that I can call my own. Fatherhood makes you strong and makes you want to work harder. When you have a child that looks to you for advice, you are guiding that child for the rest of their lives. That child will want to impress you to make you smile and tell jokes and just sit next to you or on you! Spend quality time with your children no matter what it is. I love to go for a walk with my children and they will tell you everything that happen to them during the day and something that happen a year ago!
Never get tired of hearing your child say Daddy this... Daddy that, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.
There is no better high than the joy from my own children.
