Learning from the past shapes the future

You ever get one of those days when you have a lot of work to do but you’re waiting on others so that you can complete that work?

I need documentation from outside vendors to build foundational elements into my database and of course, I have not received the reference guides from any vendor.

Enough of my ranting, Day Four: “I know what I want to be and what I don’t want to be as a father.” -- Lrudlrick

Lrudlrick once told me that because of his relationship he knows in his heart he would be a good dad. “There are certain things a father should do and be. I didn’t get those things but my children will.”

I suppose we learn from our parents and grandparents. My childhood has shaped how and what I want to be to any offspring. Why shouldn’t it be the same for Lrudlrick?

Although we are leaning in opposite directions when it comes to spawning, I feel both of us would be good parents who were dependable and reliable to our kids.

Now if I can get my husband to be a bit more realistic and stop thinking that his father would offer to baby-sit or even visit, we’d be that much closer to deciding on children.
