Ten Lessons from Fatherhood

Reading children’s books aloud is therapeutic for one who reads corporate email all day.

Giving gifts is so much better than getting gifts ever was.

Watch every word you say. And how you say it.

Today’s toddler will treat touch interfaces like we treat keyboard and mouse.

Exposing a child to exotic foods young makes her less picky as she grows older.

Never change a diaper on a bed.

You can never spend too much time with your children.

Limit TV, but make sure to record Word World on PBS. Best show ever for kiddos.

Parenting manuals are like business books: one book will directly conflict the next.

I’d rather stare at a finger painting from my two-year-old than any museum piece. (And I took enough Art History in college to know van Eyck from van Gogh.)


One response to “Ten Lessons from Fatherhood”

  1. Lesson Eleven: Parenting does not get easier as your children get older, it just gets different.

    Lesson Twelve: Being a father is simultaneously the hardest thing I’ve ever done, the easiest thing I’ve ever done, the most frustrating thing I’ve ever done and the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done.
