On being a father; My son’s first birthday.
Between that time till now, I have not been opportune to write on being a father. There are some updates though. I am now father to a wonderful son. In a few weeks time he will be celebrating his first birthday.
Its amazing the journey so far. I have witnessed so many things and it has made me a better person. I must confess though, Parenthood is underrated. I have seen my son grow from a day old and it has been an exhilarating experience.
Preparations are on for his big day. I don’t intend for it to be too flashy or noisy but who knows what his mother has planned? Regardless though, I will be a proud dad that day when my son celebrates his birthday. I will be proud of the individual he is becoming. I am and will be proud of his mother for the wonderful work she is doing.
Cue the drum now as he clocks one. A wonder for me and reminder I am getting old. But enough about me. This article is about him and as such must be focused on him.
Dear Son, you are going to be a year old and you have the world before you. There are some who would say make haste while the sun shines, but dear son, do not worry about haste just yet, for now, live son and enjoy life. You have the world at your feet dear son, scratch that, the world is at our feet son, and as you mature and develop, you will realize just as I have come to. Loads of love from Dad on your birthday.
