Now that I’m out of my 20’s, no longer a bachelor, and have become an expectant father, I guess it’s time for me to look at some parts of “me” seriously. Now there’s the lovable, huggable, “aw shucks”, teddy bear-esque quality of me that everyone comes to love at psychotic proportions. But then there’s the grimacing & mischievous instigator who loves a good fight and prods relentlessly at any button available to be pushed.
Epiphanies come in the most random and mysterious ways, but I always just assumed I was good enough. Good enough to be a husband, good enough to be a parent. My parents these days follow up every complaint of me with “is that what you’re going to teach your kids?” I thought to myself: What’s the problem? Until I saw the worst parts of me if not all of me in this video….minus the wife-beater, I’m not into that. Just thought I’d do a quick post and share. Hopefully I’ll look back at this post and reflect on what it is I’m teaching my kid when he comes into the world.
