My husband and I celebrated Father’s Day early this year with these three words:
“You were picked!”
My husband and I always knew that a placement could occur quickly. Six days, however, caused our worlds to turn upside-down… in the best possible sense of the term of course.
Looking back on those first few days, here is a top five list of ways we have stayed calm, cool, and collected these first few weeks:
Laugh at these people instead of guffawing. You are not going to love every minute. Being a dad to a newborn is the toughest job you will ever love. Enjoy the times that are great with your new bundle of joy. Those other times that aren’t enjoyable? Find humor in each moment you can.
We are certainly not experts after three weeks of parenting. The one thing we do know for sure is that being a parent is the greatest privilege we’ve ever known. Happy Father’s Day!
