Like more of a wuss now that you have a little child in the house? Evelyn is our third child so it's not that new baby smell. It could be the fact that she's the first girl, but it's hard to be as "manly" with her looking at me with those googly eyes. I'm such a softie. I hope that goes away when she gets old enough to start thinking about dating... I have an image to uphold.
Does this happen to anyone else?
Victor Vito and Freddy Vasco, ate a burrito, with tabasco... Laurie Berkner
I can deffinetly relate to this...With me being all covered in tattoos and peircings some would say i'm a hard ***** kinda guy but ever since Josiah came into our lives I can't help but to get a lil misty eyed when josiah is just chillin out or sleeping...Its really hard to look "manly" while walking thru the mall with a burp rag on your should that you forgot outwhile walking from the car...then to the resturant then thru the shoe store....lol
I am like two totally different people when I am at work as an electrician and at home with my daughter. My heart grows so much everytime I see her smile at me.
It's really something when I peek over her crib in the morning and her eyes light up when she sees me.
I thank God every day for her.
I don't really ever feel like a "wuss", but the sensitivity is there.
I'm sure I felt like a "wuss" too, but I don't remember much of it. I do remember laying in the bed with baby (each of the three) and just looking at them. It was always a marvel to me that they were even there.
But somehow, as they grew up, I wanted to make sure they (the boys that is) had none of the "wuss" stuff in them. So they didn't see it in me. That was a mistake. It's important to let the kids in on the emotional stuff too.
I feel like a "wuss" now, even though they're grown. I get misty-eyed all the time It gets embarrassing, but my wife has learned to live with it. I always cry before she does. I even wrote about it on my blog.
I really think we all need to embrace our "wuss-ness" more, but it's still embarrassing in our society!
