Fatherhood Guest: Yesmoreblogs on Becoming a Father

The Lily Cafe is thrilled to welcome Yesmoreblogs as a Father Fridays guest. A wonderful blogger who posts some great book reviews that always have me adding more books to my reading list, he is here to talk a little bit about what it was like to become a dad. Do be sure to check out his blog and take a look at his very interesting book reviews (and maybe add a book or two to your list)!
Well what can I say 😀 the first words come to mine when I was with my daughter when were alone together (her Mam had gone for a wash) I was sitting in the chair looking at this beautiful fragile child (who had the hiccups) thinking Fuck!! I need to grow up and look after this little thing. During the pregnancy I never really thought about being up all night, getting sick on or changing multi coloured poops 😀 I honestly thought this would be easy when my partner was still pregnant. I think the first few days flew by as I was still on a high becoming a Dad. Then it finally settled in but we had a routine going which worked really well from the start.
I never used to drink coffee before my daughter came along but now I’m an avid drinker with anything that has caffeine in it 😂 I’ve never been so tired but you do get used to eat. I even have the odd nap during the day when she was asleep if I was really tired. For the first few months I only ever changed nappies as my partner breast feed. It was 3/4 months after my daughter was born when I fed her for the first time. It was an amazing experience. I’ve feed babies before but it’s not that same as your own child.
Days turn into weeks then months and years. It has been difficult I’m not going to say it was easy when it wasn’t. I think it made me and my partners relationship even more stronger. Your always learning as a parent as there isn’t a parent book you get to leave with from the hospital 🤣
I think I’ve grown as a person becoming a father. It is the best job in the world. My work patterns mean I miss out on a lot but I do make up for it when I get home. I will just go into her room and watch her sleep for a few minutes just so I’ve seen her. I didn’t think I could love something so little so much. Now I’m going to be a dad again in September and can’t wait even though I’ve got a bit more of an idea what to expect this time.
Thank you so much for sharing your fatherhood story with us! And congratulations on your second child!

      1. I used to, but became a little overwhelmed. But I’m taking half of July off from blogging and one of my goals is to figure out social media, so I’ll be back on Twitter soon enough.


  1. I remember how crazy it was when my son was born. I don’t really think it was “real” for me until he was in my arms. Getting up in the middle of night and rocking in a chair for endless hours. 2 AM alone in a hospital room changing my very first diaper. It’s a wild ride.

    1. Realizing you’re now a parent comes at different points for everyone, but a good way to know for sure is definitely when you’re up in the middle of the night. It gets real really fast, but it is an amazing wild ride! And I’m so very glad Yesmoreblogs was able to share his story.
