Becoming Daddy

Here are some things I never thought I'd see my husband doing. We've been together for over 12 years, and I never imagined it quite like this. But I am so very impressed and even surprise by the changes that being a parent have made in his life.

1. Change a stinky diaper. (I'm not saying this happens often or that he enjoys this, but he does it.)
2. Take 10 extra minutes out of doing yard work just to take our son for a ride (with the mower blade off).
3. Spend half a Saturday playing outside with our son when he wanted to get yard work done.
4. Put down the newspaper to pick up our son just for a hug.
5. Share his drink or food after a snotty-nosed toddler already ate/drank from it.
6. Give up Sunday afternoon naps to take care of the kid, so I can take a nap.
7. Order something at a restaurant, because Zachariah will like it too.
8. Take our son to the toy store and buy him 2 new toys just to keep him occupied for an hour.
9. Worry more about a sniffle or cough than I do.
10. Drop everything he's doing at night to hug and cuddle our son before he goes to bed.
