Just that you are concerned about being a good father makes me think you will be.

My wife is 4 1/2 months pregnant with our first child. This song and video hit every insecurity I've got. I don't think anyone ever teaches you to be a dad, it's just in your blood. I hope I get it right...

Thank you

You'll be fine. It's impossible to imagine what fatherhood will be like until you hold your son/daughter in your arms for the first time. I read a lot of books before my daughter was born, but the ones that helped the most weren't the ones that gave parenting advice, but instead the ones that explained the baby/child's development process.

My advice to an expecting father? You and your wife should enjoy your time together as much as possible right now. Go to the movies. Go out to dinner. See some concerts. Have lots and lots of sex while you still can. I was told by a friend that I wouldn't understand the meaning of "busy" until I had a child and looking back that was 100% correct. You and your wife won't have much alone-time (or any time for that matter) for the next couple of years unless you've got grandparents living nearby willing to babysit (we do, and even with that we're lucky if we get a once-a-month date night together).

That's a powerful song, particularly with the backstory. He sees a world where all the other kids have their dad to take a lead from, but he's only got what, a memory? An idea? Nothing to lead him. Nothing to show him what to do.

"Come on, tell us who does?
Everyone knows
How babies are made
But no one knows
How fathers are made
Mister Know-it-All,
It's in our blood, that's it.

Should I suck this out of my thumb or what?
Tell me where I can find the answer.
It must be at least a thousand times that
I've sucked my fingers dry."
