I’m sure this is what my first trip to the store w/o the Mamma will be like.

My face when baby lets out an ear-piercing shriek.
Now, I generally try to convey the varying aspects of parenthood through humorous gifs, but sometimes you can’t find the right image to convey what someone feels and must do so through words. Such is now the case.
The above photo is of my daughter, Mary Jane. Many parents feel that their children is the light of their life, and I can safely count myself among their ranks. This adorable face you see here is the corporeal embodiment of my inspiration. To quote As Good As It Gets, she “makes me want to be a better man.”
Sometimes, a funny thing happens when we have children. We almost instantly become more aware of our actions and how they might be perceived by our kids. As parents, we want to make certain that our children take the best parts of us and none of the worst. It doesn’t always work, but I feel that it’s the duty of every parent to ensure that their kids become a good person and positive addition to society. The road to this goal is never transparent, and that’s what makes parenthood frustrating, wonderful, mysterious, and virtually every other adjective in the dictionary.
One thing I did before MJ was born was to write her a letter (in my own hand, since I feel it’s more personal this way) for her to open on her 16th birthday. I did this for a couple of reasons, one of which being the remote and tragic possibility that I may not be there when it happens. Not in the sense that I would have run off or voluntarily disappeared from her life, but rather in the case that some misfortune befall me. The other reasons are to, in a way, let her know that, even before she was born that I loved her dearly, and that all the things I’ve done are to make sure that she becomes a good person, and a positive member of society, no matter what form that may be. The contents are for her eyes only (or others, should she wish to share them upon reading it), but I basically set forth a list of things I believe that, now that she is an adult, she would need to know. Things such as, the world is not always fair, but often is; remember that talent is sometimes enough, but talent in conjunction with hard work is significantly better; the truth is most often found somewhere in the middle of two opposing arguments; don’t ever close your mind to something, as wisdom can be found in all things. There were many more, so I won’t list them all, but paramount to all of this is the fact that her parents will always love her and everything we’ve done is out of that love and desire to see her succeed in life.
She is the greatest inspiration in my life, and has led me to strive to become a better person and find the wisdom to teach her to be the best that she can be. I just hope I’m still there to see her read that letter.
When sick people/family are around zee babeh
How I’ll be the first time the baby gets sick
