This is a comment by Adam on the post “This is What Real Fatherhood Looks Like“.
“Well, I don’t have a picture of it, but I got home last night at 10 pm from work, and headed in to kiss my sleeping little girl goodnight. She woke up enough to say, ‘Daddy, you’re home?’ And I said softly, ‘Yes, I’m home.’ She rolled into my arm and said, ‘We go farmer’s market tomorrow.’ And I said, ‘Sounds like fun sweetie, now close your eyes and go to sleep.’
“I gently rolled her over, gave her the always-necessary-for-sleep teddy bear, and left with my heart melting. When my son woke up around 2:15 am I stumbled out of bed and stroked his back until he calmed and fell back to sleep.
“It’s not easy, but it’s wonderful being a daddy.”
