Fatherhood

Learn to Parent

With my parental senses coming to full blossom with a year now under my wings, I have noticed that I am much more “daddy” aware of things around me. For instance, when I am out to dinner without Lia, I notice kids running around tables, crying, and even sleeping in the booths next to me. As much as I hate to admit it, I think I actually might be growing up. I think it totally hit me when I caught myself looking for the brand name of a stroller instead of the hot woman that was pushing it.

On my way to Downtown the other day, the above billboard above caught my eye. My first reaction was a mixture of “wow, that’s sad” followed by an eruption of laughter. Don’t get me wrong, I am totally against any type of child abuse, but I can promise you that no matter how mad Lia will make me in the future, red and blue flames will never shoot out of my mouth towards her. However, I would have to say I would be pretty upset if I had an over-sized head with a bad toupee and hands that look like little boxing gloves. But hey, that’s not his child’s fault.
