Words Uttered After We Both Chose Sleep

Fortunately for me, I had been adequately briefed in advance on the theories of fatherhood, so I’m happy to say that so far nothing about either the hardships or the joys of the experience have come as a total surprise to me.  Mind you, this isn’t to say that I’ve never been taken aback by a situation in practice, but that has proven to be thankfully rare.

Even so, some aspects of fatherhood I’m adapting to with . . . “less grace” than others, specifically the aspects I am now dubbing the “children’s vitamin” aspects in honor of what L’s Mother said last night, aspects that are specifically formulated for the needs of a child, but may not fully meet the needs of an adult.
