... well, two things all my life i thought i hated children. turns out i just hate the parents that raise their children poorly second: i actually have a heart and feelings. i didn't think it would effect me any but it really has... i actually cried because i was so happy. well... three things my wife gets pretty pissy when she thinks I don't help enough. She's at home with the baby all day (maternity leave) and when i get home she's quick to dump my daughter on me. I'm happy to take care of her but I'm not very skilled at it and she (baby) starts to cry and I don't know what to do. I give it about 20 minutes but nothing i do makes her stop crying... so... i give her back to my wife... and this adds to her "you don't help enough" idea. I'm usually making dinner or cleaning or whatever so it isn't like i'm NOT helping at all... just not much with the baby. any parents with advice for a new father would be apreciated because it seems we have been getting in more fights since the baby came.
