As a typical guy, being a father is something I have always wanted but, I thought I would never be ready to be a daddy.
The day my daughter was born was not only the best day of my life, it was also the day I realised my job for life was to always protect her. She was always mummy lil girl in the early stages, crying every time I went near her which had me worried but the missus was confident she would get use to me and yes, she did.
I spent most of my free time just watching and talking to her, imagining what she will be when she grows up, a Doctor? or a Lawyer? Maybe, even a Footballer. Thinking myself into the ground, I always end up thinking I am just happy she’s in my life. Her first word was “dada” which was incredible.
From there it was me and Elise vs the world.
What I enjoy the most about being a dad is the pleasure of being there for someone so small and innocent, we always spend some quiet time together in the living room, watching Barney And Friend which is annoying at first but after 2 weeks with nothing else to watch, I learned to love it lol. Not to mention that she will cry if I ever changed the channel.
Her first day at school, wow! she was so happy until we got there, then she started crying! lol, I had to go and watch her through the window, she cried so much. I nearly went back in, thought about home schooling but after 2 weeks of crying everyday, she made some new friends and enjoys going back, one of them is a boy which I did not appreciate but, anything to get her to stop crying for now, is good.
She has completely changed my life for the better and I am so proud of her.
