It’s taken me weeks to be able to sit down and put these words to the keys. Motherhood is hard. Really hard. While I love sharing with you all the magical moments, sharing the tough stuff is what makes all of this real. Being a parent isn’t a walk in the park. It gets tough.

I’m now 10 months into being a father. Nothing could have prepared me for the exhaustion and excitement that has come with the experience. Not that many people didn’t try. I’m gonna glaze right over the exhaustion part, because let’s be honest, we all know what that’s like. Let me instead share my top 5 favorite moments of being a dad so far.

We’ve just begun to tiptoe into potty training territory, and I have to say, this has been one of the more daunting experiences in parenting thus far. Bee’s showing all of the signs that she no longer needs diapers (increased interest in the toilet, verbalizing when she needs to use the potty, etc.), but we’ve been on the go this summer and wrapping my head around the process has been tricky at best. So, I asked a few seasoned mamas how they tackled potty training their little ones and thought it might be fun to gather them all here for you! Enjoy!

As a father to a 10-month-old boy, often tradition and expectations say I’m supposed to be excited about my son going into sports. Maybe even push or slightly nudge him into playing one of my favorites – relive Dad’s glory days from high school. Hoping one day he’ll become a superstar athlete and make millions of dollars.
The thought flooded my mind during our walk today, as we stopped to watch a soccer camp at the local elementary school.
Before I had a child, I was guilty of believing that.

Growing up, my father was not a major part of my life. He was around but, unfortunately, our relationship wasn’t very meaningful, especially after his relationship with my mom ended. Thankfully, my mom’s love provided what I needed to become a happy, well-adjusted adult, and the men in my life (two uncles in particular) filled the void. I will forever be grateful for that.
