in Fatherhood

Flinch

“So it’s that bad huh?”

“I don’t know if I’d say it’s that bad, but it can get pretty bad.  Especially when your playing.” I told him.

“So what do you do to stop it?  I mean it’s not like you can stop playing with him,” He said.

“Yeah I know.  Wife said I need to buck up but she hasn’t been hit in the nads.  It hurts and he just seems to get it just right.  You know when you get hit just right and it’s not hard or anything but it hurts like a son of a bitch?  Well that’s what he’s like.”

“Maybe I need to invest in a cup before our little one gets to his age.”

“Might not be a bad idea. I think before our second gets here I might get one as well.  It’s a good thing we are done after two cause I’m not sure we’d be able to have another one.”

“Well good luck man.  You can do it. ”

“Thanks.  You too.”

This post brought to you by my little boy who just seems to get those ‘hits’ just right.  Not sure what the solution is, but I think any dad that makes it out of fatherhood without a flinch is doing good.
