A Father’s Story

It’s been a touch over a year since my son was born

As I look back, I can say that it has been an incredible journey— one that has tested
every ounce of me both physically and emotionally. The thing I have learned the most
during this time is that parenting is not easy and it is not a one-time event. It’s a continuous journey that requires effort and sacrifice on both our parts. One of the things I’ve had to learn is how to delegate tasks and handle stress. For example, when my son was just starting to crawl and could not yet walk, I would have to get up at 3am to feed him, dress him, and put him in his car seat. My wife would then take care of feeding our dog, getting us breakfast, and getting ourselves ready for work. Needless to say, this was a difficult challenge for both of us. Now that my son is older and can walk, I still need to get up early to do laundry and grocery shopping; but my wife can now help me with these chores so that we can spend more time together as a family. This type of delegation has helped us tremendously in terms of

How I became a dad

I always knew I wanted children, but when I hit my late 30s, I realized that my biological clock was ticking and it wasn’t going to wait much longer. So in early 2013, I took the plunge and got pregnant. It was an amazing experience being pregnant and watching my little life grow inside of me. As the pregnancy progressed, however, things started to go awry. My doctor told me that I had a rare condition called Trisomy 18 which would mean that the baby would have severe intellectual disabilities and probably be born prematurely. This news crushed me and made me question whether or not I should continue with the pregnancy. Ultimately, though, I decided to keep the baby because I loved him so much.

The delivery went well and we were all happy to finally meet our sonogram image of our new son. At just over six weeks old, however, he passed away due to complications from Trisomy 18. Despite his short life, he was a happy baby who made us all laugh constantly. We will never forget him and we are grateful for every moment we shared with him.

The ups and downs of parenthood

The ups and downs of parenthood are a constant cycle for any parent. You go through the highs and lows together, experiencing everything from the joy of big milestones to the heartache of unintended tantrums. Parenting can be exhausting but it’s also one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. Here are five things I’ve learned about parenting over the past few years:

1) It’s not easy, but it’s worth it Parenting is hard work.

There are moments when you feel like your head is about to explode and times when you’re just plain tired. But it’s all worth it in the end because raising children is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give them.

2) You need to be patient

Parenting isn’t always fast-paced or easy. It takes time and patience to get used to handling a child’s emotions and figuring out their needs. But if you stick with it, eventually parenting will become second nature to you.

3) Children change constantly

From day one, children are constantly changing and developing. As they grow older, they learn new things, make mistakes, and develop new interests. You’ll have to adapt as they do in order to keep up with them.

4) compromise is key

When parenting twins or more than one child at a time, there’s alwaysgoing to be some tension between everyone involved. One way to resolve these conflicts is by negotiating compromises

How the ketogenic diet has helped me as a father

I have dealt with various health conditions my entire life, but I never knew until I had kids that there was a name for it. I was always told that it was just “being tired” or “something to eat.” As I got older and started to become more knowledgeable about what was going on with my body, I realized that these were not just symptoms – these were actual illnesses.

In 2014, I found out that I had Hashimoto’s thyroiditis – an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland. The only way to treat it is through medication and/or surgery, which means that if it progressed further, I would have been unable to have children or even live a full life. Fortunately, after starting treatment and following the ketogenic diet strictly for six months, my thyroiditis went into remission!

While this wasn’t the cure for all my health issues (my kidneys still don’t function perfectly), it was a huge step in the right direction. Following the ketogenic diet has allowed me to maintain my good health throughout all of my pregnancies and now fatherhood has been one of the biggest blessings in my life!
