Okay, Dad, it’s time to put away the Christmas sweaters and get ready for the start of the year. Your wife may be talking about starting a new diet as a family, and your employer may want to you to turn in what your objectives are for the first quarter. But we would suggest setting some Dad goals to start your year off in the right direction.
So I went to the doctor recently for my annual physical. If you’re anything like me, you probably only visit the doctor when you’re falling apart. Guys, let’s be honest. I have to be feeling really sick before I’ll drag myself off to the docs and by this point, it’s probably a whole lot worse than it could have been. As it turns out, I’m not alone.
Bills. That dreaded time of the month.
Like many families, it’s the time of the month where we try and make it all work. I’m holed up in my home office, running numbers for our bills and monthly expenses and trying to match them up with our monthly budget. I work full-time running a small business and my wife works part-time to bring in some extra cash.
It seems like each month we are working hard to get by.
If you could improve one area in your fatherhood journey…what would it be?
For a lot of dads, they want to be more patient. When experienced dads are asked about becoming a father, a common theme that comes up is the importance of patience.
There is nothing like a crying baby in the middle of the night to test a young couple’s patience. Or being interrupted continuously while trying to accomplish a simple task around the house.
Your calendar matters. I was scrolling through pictures on my iPhone last week and cleaning out some old photos to make room for new ones. As I was selecting images to purge, I found myself noticing how much my children have grown over the last two years. I found a video of my daughter’s first few steps, my son learning to ride his bike, pictures of family trips to the beach and mountains and a short video of my daughter singing her ABC’s. I started to get quite sentimental, and I thought: Geez it goes by too fast.
