Gaby's picture






It just hit me, I have TWO kids man, Two freaking kids! What am I going to do to keep myself sane? Dunno, it was interesting before, now it's just crazy. Thanks to all the family and friends for all the help so far. I have no doubts things will turn out OK.

My concern is, will I be a good Dad? It's hard for me because, I am so lost most of the time, I live inside of my head, pondering about useless things, it takes effort for me to keep my head on reality. That's why I rely on my wife so much, she's good at this type of things. But she cannot do this by herself, that's why I need to pay attention, my theory is, teach them the skills they will need to make it to this world, I will talk to them about everything my parents didn't talk to me about. I want to give them lots of love. That's it. It's live and learn baby.

This reminds me of my favorite quote by Kurt Vonnegut:

"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind."

Anyway, that's it for now, there's a bunch of people in the room, so I better go.

if you've got a workbench, you can be a good dad. If you don't, then I suggest getting one.

But I got faith that you can be a good father, workbench or not.

btw, welcome back to the blogging world!
