It’s Not Easy Being a Father
April 13, 2011Posted by on
As the first official blog entry I would like to talk about how my daughter at 3 months old is really a mischievous little girl.
The other night I was reading in bed while my wife slept, Anqi (Chinese for Angel) was sleeping in her crib beside us. She is usually a very good sleeper and only wakes up for emergencies or little night scares, so when she wakes up its almost always a surprise.
She had been sleeping silently since about 9pm, she wasn’t even snoring she was so peaceful.
All of a sudden she let out a squeal as if in pain. I jumped out of bed, dropping my book and looked down to see what was wrong.
There was Anqi looking at me with a big smile on her face and her eyes lit up. She even managed a gurgle of delight when she saw my face.
I looked down at her and said, “Anqi are you tricking me?”
Her toothless grin grew larger.
My wife who had woken up asked what was wrong. When I explained to her that our sweet and innocent little girl had played a nasty prank on her concerned father, do you think I got any sympathy?
No. She started laughing along with Anqi.
It’s not easy being a father sometimes.
