little star

This past week I read a book by Andi Watson called "Little Star". It is the truest, most accurate, scarily honest depiction of new fatherhood I have ever encountered. Virtually every page resonated with experiences I have had over the last 4 1/2 years of fatherhood.

The scariest thing in the book was the way Watson put into words, at the end of the book, a summary of my life now. "I'm happier than I've ever been and I'm sadder than I've ever been". Parental existence in a nutshell.

Read this book, buy it off Amazon at a very good price, give it to any friend expecting a child. Gain an insight into what a new father is going through.
