I’ll like to think that I am right all the time, and that presumes the correct methods of fathering my precious darling.
But am I glad for all the tensions at home.
I needn’t talk the big talks of fatherhood for at the fundamental levels, I am using the various carry positions that I observed of my mum-in-law employing; I had only held my girl in a single manner, cradling her with her lying on her back so far.
MIL on the other hand carries darling in an upright position both with darling facing outwards and towards the body, cradling her with her both facing the sky or the ground, employing various arm positions etc.
Furthermore, as recorded earlier, Wifey had noted that my active fatherhood seems pretty much limited to functional duties like washing the milk bottles, wiping darling girl’s bum, burping her etc. Any emotional connection with her is but a by-product of performing those duties.
Contrast this with mum-in-law walking her fingers up and down darling’s belly and chest, making her smile and increasingly laugh her earliest smiles and laughter.
I really know too little despite how I think of myself.
