Father, Father, How are you?

It's been a while since I write something about me, my feelings, the things that runs in my mind and what I am going through. It is indeed a while. I'm not ranting or anything but I'm exhaling the burden that I'm having right now.

The image of Dads to us are very strong. He is the foundation, the pillar, and our fortress. Perhaps that was the image built before. What about if those qualities are not met? Would the father be still image of a father or it would lessen the perception? Well, nobody is perfect and Dads are not spared of that.

These past few months, where I rarely update this personal blog, I have been struggling and weighing the pros and cons of the decision I'm going to make. I have been consulting my better half about it. Also discussing every details and outcomes that may lead to. This decision will definitely turn our life around knowing nothing of what would it be but we're assuring ourselves that we will get through with it.

Father, father how are you? I am not only referring to my father but also to myself. How am I? Honestly, wrinkles on my face have taken over and it is just a matter of time that I would be a grumpy old man. Yes, it is and that's how hard it is to cope up with our lives for now. I think I have forgotten how it is not to worry of the things. I have become less trusting of what HE could do or may be I'm very occupied of trying to stitch things out and forgetting that there's a BIG God that can handle big problems. As it was like in the scene of the movie Finding Nemo, Dory said "it's time to let go". Perhaps it is time to let go and let HIM lead us to the things that HE has planned for us.

I'm letting go of my job for now and take the responsibility of becoming a son for a while. I don't want to have regrets if the time comes. And I'm thankful that my better half is in full support.

We will be facing a new path and we're praying that God will lead us to this decided path. Please do pray for us as well.

Boosting Your Child's Confidence

Perhaps this is one of the struggles of parents like me, how to boost your kid's confidence when he is at his low. For whatever reasons it maybe and perhaps because of their surroundings that affected their self-esteem. In our case with our eldest son, it was hard to crack that shell. It was really a battle of giving him that confidence that he needs.

It started when our son, was on first grade. Perhaps it was because he was the youngest because of his acceleration that made him less confident of himself.

Making him talk in front of the class or when we have visitors is our struggle. We wanted him not to be shy and we did our work small step at a time. Of course us being there makes it easier for him. It was a little by little success.

Seeing this video of a father making his hair bald just to make his daughter understand that even without hair the beauty is still there. The father wanted his daughter to not feel different because of her condition. The little girl suffers from Alopecia.

It's really hard to cope up with life if you don't have anyone to help with you and thanks to Dads like him that understanding the understandable makes it easy.

Daddy Yashiro Talks About Baby-proofing Your Home

Another learning from different parenting sites, forums, and of course the best source are the moms (I got plenty of mommy friends – bloggers and not) that I would like to share as well. Of course there are some minor changes and tweaks that I did or rather added. Well it’s always different to every family and situations so parents should adapt or level up.

So, without anymore more blah blah and blah here it is.

Baby-proofing home is one of the things that parents should do nowadays. Since most of the times parents aren’t frequent in the house, unless they are full time moms or dads, so keeping everything in safe mode is the best for babies. Whether you think this is needed or not, you should have it. It’s more of a precaution to insure the safety of the children.

Daddy Yashiro’s Shares Newborn Bathing Ritual

It’s been 6 years since the last time I held our youngest son and gave him a bath. It was scary and I’m really nervous doing it. I’m worried that I might do something that would not be okay with him but thank God with my wife with me I was able to pass that worrisome stage. So, now that they are already big and they can do bath on their own I missed that moment but of course it will always be a memory to cherish.

This came to be because I find out on my FB feed that some of my friends are newly Dads. It’s their first time to be with a baby and to hold them. So, to give them something to look at as a reference I’m sharing some of the things I learned not only through experience but also with the events I have been that talked about babies.
