GreatDad’s list of best things about being a dad

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 18-05-2007

Long sleepless nights, endless diaper changes, and a spouse
who now has little time left for you anymore. Add to that an overwhelming sense of responsibility
that, at best, leaves you wondering about a largely uncertain future. Sometimes you wonder whether
this is all that being a father is about.

 

But then, you remember all those little
ways in which the birth of your baby has altered your life forever and you know it’s worth it… a
hundred times over!

 

Here are just few of those many things that make fatherhood
such a great experience. You can add to this list by sharing your own experiences. (To do so, click
Post Comment, below.)

  • Looking into those beautiful eyes and hearing your baby say, “I
    love you Dad.” (And your child hasn’t even begun talking yet.)

  • Coming home to your baby
    after a particularly trying day at work, and realizing that you have never felt better in your
    life

  • Discovering the child in you all over again, as you get down on your knees to play
    with your baby

  • Taking endless pictures of your baby, and still feeling that you just
    cannot have enough of them

  • Taking your baby out for a walk and being aware of all the
    appreciative glances you are getting

  • Learning a whole new language as you communicate
    with your baby
