When our daughter was an infant, I had some moments of despair. I wondered if Chris would be a good father. He didn't really have a clue what to do with a baby. If she cried, he turned the TV up louder. Her diapers sometimes left him flummoxed. When he held her he looked... well, terrified.
But once those early days passed he turned into an incredible dad. Patient, loving, kind and funny.
And he still is. His daughter adores him.
The drake will not know what to do with all these new families! I hope he will shape up and be a good father to all the ducklings.
But I know he will never be as good of a dad as my husband is to our "duckling."
