how to be a good dad
so, i'm not sure this is really the place to go for advice like this. but i figured at least a few here could cough up some good advice i might be glad to have later on.
i have a little over a week before my little boy gets here. i remember growing up making notes to myself what i would or would not do as a father... and now i wonder if i've forgotten most of that. i'm sure i'll end up doing alright, but...
as long as i'm sitting around thinking about it so much these days, i figured i'd ask y'all to chime in with whatever nuggets you have to pass along, things to remember on tough days, or whatever else might help me see things better.
so, if you don't mind, whatcha got?
pain or damage don't end the world. or despair, or fucking beatings. the world ends when you're dead. until then, you got more punishment in store. stand it like a man... and give some back.
