I always thought fatherhood would come easy to me. I grew up surrounded by young kids (my mom ran a home daycare), I studied psychology with hopes of becoming a child therapist, I worked for a parenting magazine in my 20s, and then I became an elementary school teacher. Right up to the moment our son was born, I thought “I got this!” – boy was I wrong!
