Reply To: Things They Didn’t Warn You About Before Becoming A Dad


How mind numbingly boring spending extended periods of time with kids is.

Cards on the table I never wanted kids, my partner knew this but came off the pill without telling me. So yeah I’m a dad now. My daughter is 5 now. I’m not with her mum anymore (I’m now engaged to a fantastic women who is much more on my wavelength) but I still pay the money and take my daughter at weekends because despite never wanting to be a parent I realise it’s not my daughters fault. I don’t enjoy anything about fatherhood though, I’m not wired that way. It’s an obligation I fulfill.

It really is sooooooooo boring though. That’s the part no one warns you about.
