Newborn baby girl wishes to parents

wishes on becoming father

I only realised I had a problem the moment I tried to punch my father, missed by a mile, and collapsed in a heap in the gutter beside my favourite restaurant. I don’t recall why we were outside, but I had finished quite a few fingers of scotch, and perhaps as the tone of my voice rose, we had thought it better to sojourn. I remember the fury, though: he had casually asked if everything was all right, and, as my tongue froze and my blood boiled, as I failed to find the words to carve a flippant lie, all I could think of was the humiliation implicit in the question – that my own dad would not empathise with the turmoil that becoming a father had had on my life.

A few months earlier, I had stood in a London hospital room, awestruck, as my daughter – my first child – emerged into the world. I had been the one who wanted children, who had pressured my wife to start a family, and as I held the pink, prune-like package in my arms, I was overwhelmed with emotions I had never felt before. I was elated at the miracle of existence and mortified at my unpreparedness, at how there was no going back.

Although we still shared a home and a bed, I felt I’d lost my partner and best friend. I had never felt so alone

For days, I grappled silently with those contradictory sentiments, hiding them behind a nervous, fake smile. A father’s role is like the best friend in that movie you forget as soon as the credits roll: the support act to fill in the blanks, clean up the mess, do the dishes off-screen and follow on a safe distance behind, out of focus. There were bottles to be sterilised, baths to be scrubbed, nappies to be changed in a new, perpetual, monotonous routine.

I wanted to talk to my wife, but her obligations were all-consuming, and she was overcome with exhaustion. Although we still shared a home and a bed, it seemed that the unspoken emotional compact that had underpinned our relationship for so many years had been dissolved. With each day of silence and service, my uncertainties grew and ballooned and metastasised into something that felt a lot like resentment. I had lost my partner and my best friend; I had never felt so alone.

Perhaps if I had talked to someone then, I would not have begun to spiral, but stoicism is a toxic pillar of society’s accepted principles of masculinity.

In my family, where the patriarch was always a “sacrificing” breadwinner (my father spent decades working in China while we, his family, remained in London), I was expected to do what must be done without complaint, to silently shoulder the burden. I could not talk to my friends, could not tell them the truth for fear of seeming weak – as weak and vulnerable and dangerous to myself as I actually was – and so, as the days passed and the memories of our life before began to recede, I searched for paths of escape.

It was my wife who saved me, the same wife who was shouldering the ceaseless burden of new motherhood

The bottles of scotch multiplied on top of our fridge. The nights grew warmer, and I would venture out to the parks and beaches of the city where we were now living, spaces shared with the homeless and drug-addicted, waiting for time to pass and the pain to end. As Euro 2012 sprang into life, I watched every game at the bar up the street, pressed into the braying scrum of bodies, supporting no team, not saying a word, alone with my drink. I was consumed by an unacknowledged rage that, as my world shrank, wanted only to destroy me, us, and our little life.

In the years since, I have witnessed many new fathers experience the same sense of hopelessness, watched them disappear down a rabbit hole of isolation as they insist, as I did, that everything is fine. One, living with his family in a tiny one-bedroom flat, gave up even entering the bedroom, evicted nightly as “the baby can’t sleep with you here”; another took to sleeping in the office to avoid going home; another closed the door on his life and began again. Too many more engaged in impulsive and vindictive retaliations, or let their simmering discontent damage their relationships in manners difficult to repair. The connective tissue between every story? “I couldn’t speak to anyone.”

It was my wife who saved me, the same wife who was shouldering the ceaseless burden of new motherhood and realigning her own life and self at least as much as I was. She begged me constantly to reconnect, to share with her in the fleeting beauty of those early moments, but each attempt at reconciliation drove me further away. As our friendship soured and my bitterness polluted every fleeting interaction, as the life-expectancy of each bottle of scotch dwindled, she took our daughter in her arms and searched for help.

In praise of fathers, mostly

There was no conversation. “Please,” she begged, pushing a piece of paper with a name and a phone number across the table one morning. “For us.” A few days later I found myself sitting in a bright room, a clinical psychologist smiling kindly at my hunched, defensive form. Over the subsequent months, I laid bare for him, and for myself, the fears, anxieties and expectations, the reprehensible inadequacies that I had sworn to myself weren’t there. Giving them a voice, recognising them for what they were allowed me to begin healing myself and the family I was well on the way to destroying.

Having a child is violently disruptive. So much of the system of awareness and support is concentrated on new mothers, and rightly so, but ignoring the needs of, and effects on, new fathers creates vast destructive ripples that emanate from wounded and often self-destructive souls. Ultimately, assistance and acceptance, exposing the conspiracy of silence for the blight that it is, allowed me to embrace the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life, my family and I emerging stronger. Discarding prehistoric notions of masculinity and sharing experiences while defusing unrealistic expectations – letting fathers understand that it is reasonable, even expected, to grapple for stability as the ground shifts abruptly under their feet – could spare so many young families so much needless suffering. To begin, all that is required is for us to talk.

But I know you like me best!

Dad you know that I like Batman
And Superman's cool too
But I don't really need them
As long as I have you!

This Father's Day poem is super sweet and the perfect poem for a new dad on their first Father's Day.

Happy Father's Day, Daddy,
I have a present for you.
No, it's not in my diaper,
But that needs changing, too!

I have a poem to let you know
How lucky Mommy and I are
Because when it comes to daddies
You really are a star!

Thanks for taking care of me
With cuddles and silly songs.
Thanks for settling me back to sleep,
The nights they can be long

One day I'll be big like you,
And strong and smart and brave.
But while I'm little I want to say
Happy First Father's Day!

What should I say to my dad on Father's Day?

The two things your dad wants to feel on Father's Day are loved and appreciated.

FATHERS & FATHERHOOD:

Greatest Quotes on Fathers & Fatherhood

compiled by Michael Josephson

Revised March 29, 2016


 

About Being a Father

  1. “No word makes me happier than the word “Daddy” uttered by one of my children.”
  2. “We never know the love of a parent until we become parents ourselves.”
  3. “Being a father is the most important role I will ever play and if I don’t do this well, no other thing I do really matters.”
  4. “Being a father is the most important role I will ever play and if I don’t do this well, no other thing I do really matters.”
  5. “By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.”
  6. “It is a wise father that knows his own child.”
    • William Shakespeare (It’s also a rare father).
  7. “Fifth Commandment: Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land, which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”
  8. “One of the greatest tragedies of life is that fathers and sons can love each other deeply without ever getting to know each other. Get to know each other.”
  9. “I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.”
  10. “One of the greatest things about daughters is how they adored you when they were little; how they rushed into your arms with electric delight and demanded that you watch everything they do and listen to everything they say.  Those memories will help you through less joyous times when their adoration is replaced by embarrassment or annoyance and they don’t want you to see what they are doing or hear what they are saying. And yet, you will adore your daughter every day of her life, hoping to be valued again, but realizing how fortunate you were even if you only get what you already got.”
  11. “It’s a great joy but no test of love or commitment to take your son to a ball game. You really prove your credentials as a good dad when you are willing to take your daughter shopping – more than once.”
  12. “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.”
  13. “One father is more than a hundred Schoolmasters.”
  14. “There are three stages of a man’s life:  He believes in Santa Claus, he doesn’t believe in Santa Claus, he is Santa Claus.”
  15. “I have found the very best way to advise your children is to find out what they want to do and advise them to do it.”
  16. “The words that a father speaks to his children in the privacy of home are not heard by the world, but, as in whispering—galleries, they are clearly heard at the end and by posterity.”
  17. “Creating a child takes no love or skill; being a parent requires lots of both.”
  18. “Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later… that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life.”
  19. “Father! — to God himself we cannot give a holier name.”
  20. “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.”
  21. “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”
  22. “The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.”
  23. “Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!”
    • Lydia M. Child, Philothea 1836
  24. “There’s something like a line of gold thread running through a man’s words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.”
  25. “Your father, Jo. He never loses patience―never doubts or complains―but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him.”
    • Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
  26. “To her, the name of father was another name for love.”
  27. “A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child.”
  28. “The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.”
  29. “My son, a perfect little boy of five years and three months, had ended his earthly life. You can never sympathize with me; you can never know how much of me such a young child can take away. A few weeks ago I accounted myself a very rich man, and now the poorest of all.”
    • Ralph Waldo Emerson, on the death of his son
  30. “The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature.”
    • Antoine-François, Abbé Prévost d’Exiles
  31. “The father of a daughter is nothing but a high—class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, “Daddy, I need to ask you something,” he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan.”
  32. “I love my father as the stars — he’s a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart.”
  33. “Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.”
  34. “My daddy, he was somewhere between God and John Wayne.”
  35. “Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later… that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life.”
    • Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities
  36. “You will find that if you really try to be a father, your child will meet you halfway.”
  37. The father is always a Republican toward his son, and his mother’s always a Democrat.”
  38. “Why are men reluctant to become fathers? They aren’t through being children.”
  39. “Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow.”

About Dad

  1. “I decided in my life that I would do nothing that did not reflect positively on my father’s life.”
  2. “Lately all my friends are worried that are turning into their fathers. I’m worried I’m not.”
  3. “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”
  4. “I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father’s equal, and I never loved any other man as much.”
  5. “To be the father of growing daughters is to understand something of what Yeats evokes with his imperishable phrase ‘terrible beauty.’ Nothing can make one so happily exhilarated or so frightened: it’s a solid lesson in the limitations of self to realize that your heart is running around inside someone else’s body. It also makes me quite astonishingly calm at the thought of death: I know whom I would die to protect.”
  1. “I always wondered why God was supposed to be a father,” she whispers. “Fathers always want you to measure up to something. Mothers are the ones who love you unconditionally.”
  1. “The view from atop your shoulders was the best I’ve ever had. I see more, know more and can do more because of you dad. I am who I am because of you dad.”
  2. “I talk and talk and talk, and I haven’t taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week.”
  3. “Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist — because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table. That’s how she found out what happened on the day my father died — she went looking for him because that morning, there was no rose.”
  4. “He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.”
    • Clarence Budington Kelland
  5. “Dad, you’re someone to look up to no matter how tall I’ve grown.”
  6. “Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
  7. “Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.”
  8. “It’s only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home—it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love.”
  9. “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”
  10. “I just wish I could understand my father.”
  11. “My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it. “
  12. “My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, “You’re tearing up the grass.”  “We’re not raising grass,” Dad would reply.  “We’re raising boys.”
  13. “Old as she was, she sometime still missed her daddy. “
  14. “It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was. “
  15. “I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work fifteen and sixteen hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.”
  16. “Father!
    My father knows the proper way / The nation should be run; / He tells us children every day / Just what should now be done.
    He knows the way to fix the trusts,/ He has a simple plan;/ But if the furnace needs repairs, /We have to hire a man.
    My father, in a day or two / Could land big thieves in jail; / There’s nothing that he cannot do,/ He knows no word like “fail.”
    “Our confidence” he would restore, / Of that there is no doubt; / But if there is a chair to mend,/ We have to send it out.
    All public questions that arise,/ He settles on the spot; / He waits not till the tumult dies, /But grabs it while it’s hot.
    In matters of finance he can / Tell Congress what to do; / But, O, he finds it hard to meet / His bills as they fall due.
    All wars he’d very quickly end, / As fast as I can write it; / But when a neighbor starts a fuss, / ‘Tis mother has to fight it.
    In conversation father can / Do many wondrous things; / He’s built upon a wiser plan / Than presidents or kings.
    He knows the ins and outs of each / And every deep transaction; / We look to him for theories, /
    But look to ma for action”

Father’s Day

  1. “Your father doesn’t need another Father’s Day tie, wallet, or sweater. If you want to give him a gift he will treasure forever, buy a nice picture frame. Inside it put a handwritten note telling him he did a good job with specific memories of how he’s enriched your life. Then tell him how much you love him. “
  2. “I was so lucky to have you as a dad; I can’t wait to have my kids have you as a grand dad.”
  3. The greatest gift I ever had came from God; I call him Dad!”
