The Perks of Being A Father

image

It isn’t easy being a father. Nothing you can do adequately prepares you for the role, and after 7 years of fatherhood, I still feel so new and so raw sometimes. Things can often be rough when the kids get up to mischief and awkward when they ask you a question you do not know how to answer in simple terms. Sometimes you run out of ideas. It is one big leadership training ground.

But through it all, I can say it has been a heck of a ride! No regrets, only wonderful memories and worthwhile lessons which shape the person you are. The perks of a father are not these little gifts from your kids on Fathers’ Day, but the way these little eyes look at you with that sense of respect and love, the eyes that say in spite of all your imperfections, “You are the best Daddy in the world!”
