My real reason for celebrating Father’s Day

  I used to not get Father's Day. Even in the early days of finally being a dad, I didn't quite understand it. There's the obvious reason: As far as the birthing process is concerned, the man's job is pretty much the best and most enjoyable job. It lasts a night---though if we're really honest, less than an hour. That's it. There's no nine months of dizzy spells, morning sickness, an unshakeable feeling of being bloated, hard-to-satisfy cravings, morning sickness, unrelenting fatigue and then even more morning sickness. And at the end of nine months, you're not the one being wheeled into an operating room and getting stuck with fat needles and then getting cut up....Keep on reading: My real reason for celebrating Father’s Day
