Romanticizing parenting

The truth is , being a Dad, a parent , etc... Is an imperfect process with imperfect beings and imperfect love... Making the effort to get it all 'right'... Full disclosure... I suck at a lot of this stuff. I'm not as patient as I'd like to be. I'm more controlling than I ever realized. I can be harder than I actually want. I struggle between properly disciplining, and wanting to be liked... This Daddy thing can be difficult and is a struggle at times.  That's my truth, and a far too unspoken truth for many.

Appreciating the process: there is nothing else.

I am realizing lately that it is all the little moment, all the incremental steps, all the smaller aspects, that make up the grander version of what we truly want.

Pigeon-held to peoples expectations
