I’ve realized over the last couple days that this fatherhood thing is alot harder then first thought it would be. Between juggling work, baby, and being a husband you don’t have any me time. I usually get home from work and straight to either comforting the little one or right to sleep to all just wake up and do it all again the next day. But I now have a day off and I have just put William down for a nap, and my me time has come.
I begged my friends on facebook and twitter the other day to help me find my sleep. I even went as far as to offer a cash reward to anyone who could help me find it. Someone suggested finding it in the bottom of a bottle of scotch. I’m going to try that someday! But seriously, sometimes before William was around you wonder how you operated on just 5 hours of sleep, now I can say that coffee is my friend and I would beg for 5 hours of sleep. Now this maybe the rookie dad coming out in me but many people say it doesn’t get better as time goes on. I wonder how true that is. Once they start sleeping through the night doesn’t sleep for you get better?
As much as I complain about the things that I’m not getting since William has been here I still feel like this is all worth it. The other night I came home from work and I held him and he fell asleep right in my arms. That makes it all better.
