    Default I became a father this week

    Hey everyone, I haven't been online here a lot lately. The reason: I just became a dad . I have been in the 7th heaven since she was born this past monday which has been without doubt the best experience I have ever felt in my life. I wondered about how it would feel to become a dad and feel the responsibility to love, care, provide, teach, raise and look over a newly born child and if I would be "worthy" of it.

    After a few days I have to say I have felt the responsibility since day one and more accurately pretty much since my women and I found out she was pregnant and we immediately decided that abortion would never be an option for us. Though I'm not christian or religious I consider it to be pretty much immoral, though I can definitely think of cases where it would be a serious consideration for women.

    Either way I think I'm handling fatherhood well and so far I'm LOVING it, every minute and every second of it, offcourse my MAD parentingskills haven't been really been put to the test .

    Are there any other parents out there that were wondering if they would be worthy of being a parent? Just wondering.

    Congrats. And when you're up in the middle of the night indulge yourself in a Pacer game or two. They're a lot better this year.

    Congratulations!

    This will be the best thing you have ever done in your life...at least it has been for me! My son just turned 1 year old this last month.

    Congrats! Became a dad just over 15 years ago and I've never regretted it! I hope your daughter ends up enjoying going to Pacers games with you, as mine does with me. At least for now...

    Great news Mourning! We always love hearing from you but you have a good (really the only good one ) reason for being not around as much.

    Congrats! Your life just changed forever. It's mostly all good, until she turns 16 or so. (j/k)

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I would like to thank everyone for the kind words, I truly appreciate it, which is completely inline with the class showed on this board since it's inception. Offcourse, one of my main goals will be to add her to the Dutch Pacers colony!

    Congrats my friend. Warning......I've been wondering if I'm doing this right for 44 years. If I ever figure it out I'll let you know.
