It Ain’t Easy Being A Dad
I'm about to become a dad again. For the sixth time. (*Sigh*) Don't get me wrong. There is no greater blessing that I've been given on this Earth than my children. That being said, it's not easy being a dad. If you've never experienced being a father, I have an easy way to explain it to you. Watch this classic commercial for the Stretch Armstrong doll.
See the doll in that commercial. Replace that with a dad and you get an idea what it's like sometimes. It seems like someone is always trying to grab an arm. Child 1 needs his computer fixed. Child 2 needs a ride from point A to point B. Child 3 thinks I'm stupid. Child 4 agrees with Child 3. Child 5 just threw his sippy cup behind the (unmovable) couch. Child 6 is about to be born. (*Sigh*)
I love being a dad. There's nothing better. But then again, there are days. Hold on...someone else is grabbing my arm again...gotta go.
