Nobody's Perfect.. What HE wishes someone would have asked him..
Ah.. a great article I am sharing with you Mamas.. about a homosexual Dad, stating what he wishes people would have asked him before they had brought their baby home... how will you handle him NOT being perfect?
It's quite the question really.. isn't.. all the ideas, dreams and how we "think/hope" things will go in our heads.. and then, alas, reality is quite different. I haven't gotten to that point with Monroe yet.. he's a "normal" happy and healthy 5 month old.. but I know the time will come, when he does something differently, perhaps odd, not in line, not like the rest.. and I wonder how will I handle it? Will I accept it instantly? Will I be ashamed?
Parenting is quite the learning curve, isn't it? It's hard to not step in, help, direct, lead them every step of the way.. we have to let them guide themselves a bit.. and trust they will get to where they need to be.
Moms.. can you relate to this Dad? If so, how?
