I’ve only got one for you this week, because I really, really, really want you to read it.
Matt is a dad of twinfants. He’s also a talk radio host* and a blogger, but what we really care about here is that he’s a DoM. In this post, he responds to a request from a father-of-twins-to-be (congratulations to Kevin and his wife!) about what fatherhood is really like. My favourite words from the whole post:
Real freedom comes only from love. When you have your kids, you will have a love that you’ve never before experienced, and never could have experienced, and that will be the truest sort of freedom.
You know you want to read the rest, including his blow-by-blow account of being responsible for his twinfants, solo, for all of two hours. If you’ve ever felt underappreciated for the level of care our kids needed as babies on an average day, rest assured that this guy gets it.
*Another thing. I think the fact that I can completely disagree with Matt’s politics but completely agree with his view on parenting just demonstrates that our kids and our responsibilities toward them can overcome differences big and small.
