My First Father’s Day

Last time I mentioned leaving your comfort zone. Sunday was another step for me. As I watch Baby Buck lying on the couch, cooing and constantly moving his arms and legs, I tried to capture the moments on video. Camera shy? He settles down and is never as entertaining as his off camera self. On the bright side, I may have accidentally found my new baby calming technique. Look out Dr. Harvey Karp!

Earlier in the morning I called my own father to wish him a Happy Father’s Day. He said same to you for the first time. I confessed it’s still a little strange and not used to it yet. He countered, “Just wait till he talks to you, then you’ll get it.” In an instant, I finally understood why my dad still treats me like a little kid at times. In the future, I would probably act the same toward Baby Buck because he will always be my baby boy just like how I am to my father. Funny, one of my pet peeves as an adult, being treated like a kid, finally makes sense. It just took me having my own son to understand.

Hope all you dads out there had a Happy Father’s Day! How did you spend it and did you have any revelations? Guess you have a new member to the club.

Stay Inspired!
Papa Buck

    Since this was my 30 something Father’s Day, I can speak with some authority. The best Father’s Days are when your children are willing to spend their time with you. Time is much more important than money or presents. My son made brunch for me on Sunday and we spent the greater part of the day together.

    I had a nice Father’s Day. My kids weren’t with me, but I got to video chat with a couple of them and my grandkids and talk briefly on the phone to the other two. Treasure every moment, Papa–there are many Father’s Days to come that are going to fly by. It’s such a great experience.

  3. Congrats on the first fathers day. What a feeling I am sure. I think what Krant said is great. Focus on spending the time with them. That is what matters.

    I am sure once I start a family I am going to have the same feeling on my first mothers day.

    PS: Hope all is well. I haven’t been by the site in a long time. I have been so swamped.

  4. My son is growing up (3 years) but I remember him as few days baby. What a lyrics day – happy Father’s Day.
