3 Things I’ve Learned So Far From Fatherhood

Being a dad changes everything. For real, they’re not just saying it. Since I’m typing this with a hiccuping baby on my shoulder, this is gonna be short.

1. You have a lot less time to do things you used to do.

2. Sleep is almost as valuable as time.

3. It doesn’t matter how many times you wake up in the middle of the night, the loudness of the crying in your ear, or the number of diapers you have to change — having a kid is the most amazing thing, ever.

  1. I’m not sure I agree with all of this. For starters you’re in the worst time, so it’s hard to judge — doesn’t matter how much you like it, it is going to get better.

    You’re time and sleep will be returned to you shortly — within a few months.

    There are a few things in your life that change a lot when you have kids though.
    Going out, with or without them, will never be the same. It takes over an hour for us to leave the house these days, and that is on a good day.
    Everything is more expensive. Sure diapers, food and daycare are a lot, but utilities etc are more too.

    But if you think you’re having fun now, wait until the second one comes. Mine our two years apart and the first 6 months was VERY difficult. But I still believe that in the long run it will pay off as they’ll always have playmates.
