I am now one month into this whole fatherhood lifestyle. I am preventing the imminent dad bod. I have relatively successfully transitioned back to work.
With all of the change, it has been a relatively smooth transition. However, it has not been without its fair share of expected difficulties. Really, any time I experience a major life change it has difficulties, both expected and unexpected. These difficulties are what smooth the edges. They smooth me down like a rock in a river bed. It is really quite tedious when you think about it. Each stone is made smooth in the river bed.
The stone is not smoothed out quickly it is very slow.
Ludicrously slow for some.
The rough stone is made smooth one grain of sand at a time.
One grain of sand at a time.
So too, my son is developed one grain of sand at a time. Right now we are in the slow process of helping him develop past screaming every time his primal appetite barks (we have quite a bit of time before this is a reality.) We are in the process of letting each day be more passing water and slowly but surely his rough edges will smooth.
Slowly but surely my rough edges will smooth.
What rough edges are being smoothed out in you? How patient are you with others as they are smoothed out one grain of sand at a time?
