What I found to be interesting however, is that each one is unique, as no two dads are alike. With so many different styles ranging from the educational to the, ahem, silly, there seems to be something out there for everyone, and then a few left over.
Single dads, gay dads, married dads, and scared dads….dads in all sorts of arrangements, with blogs that are funny, original, and well written. They also have one major thing in common--the fear of making mistakes. Some of these blogs were well established and went back three or four, or even five or six years. A few caught my eye and I went back to the first posts, reading the progression from terrified, expecting dads to what looked like proud, confident fathers with beautiful pictures of smiling boys and girls. And this gave me hope.
Instead of feeling small and irrelevant, I feel comforted by the fact that I'm not alone, that what I'm feeling is normal for many fathers. It seems that there are many of us out there worrying and I actually think that's a good thing, because it means that we care.
I'm very much excited about becoming a father, in fact I haven't been this excited about something since the day my dad gave me a can of Jolt Cola when I was 9 years old, (which I'm sure he immediately regretted). So please, bear with me through my blunders and grammatical errors as I'm still learning how to be a better writer and a better husband, and in three short months, a better father.
