Work in progress - I will add to it.

A letter to my son, who is going to be a father.

You may not know it, but you are already a father.  The way you teach bug and boo, you are a father figure.  You show them right from wrong, make sure that they listen and respect themselves as well as others around them. You are a father.

Soon you will have a baby, a baby that is relying on you to survive.

A baby that will grow into a child and look to you for its food, warmth, love and kindness.

It cannot survive without you or your love.

I just want to give you a few pointers and some advice.   I want you to remember it for always.  You may forget things at the store, or to fill up your gas tank. You may forget to turn off the lights or to pay a bill.  But you will never forget how much love you will feel when you have your baby.

1. You will have sleepless nights.  You will feel like sleeping standing up.  You will never sleep so hard you roll over your baby.  It's like a 6th sense. 
2. always keep night time healthy snacks.  When you get up to feed the baby in the middle of the night, it seems like we are allowing ourselves to eat as well.  Bad habit, unless you have a healthy snack.

2. Remember what I said about the baby wipes down the diaper.  This will contain any loose stools that you do not want all over the babys back.
