In June 2003, I started a new career. A career I probably should be fired from, but I am some reason I am still here.
In March 2006, my responsibilities in this career doubled. Now there are even more reasons for me to be fired.
In June 2003, I became a first time dad. In March 2006, I was blessed with my second son.
Like all dads, I had no idea what I was doing. While I do get some things right, I still continue to make mistakes.
I love my boys and want what is best for them.
By the way,
Any dad who says he has it all together is just lying.
With a degree in education and countless hours of experience working with other children did not prepare me for my own first son, let alone a second son born almost three years later.
My boys are wonderful. They are forgiving, and I know they love me.
Of all the Jobs I have ever had, being a dad is probably the one I am least qualified for.
I continually miss deadlines, break appointments, and disappoint my boys. With any employer, I would have been fired a long time ago and I would say I deserve it.
My boys deserve more than I give them.
I am not happy about this, which is why things are going to change.
I have put too many things in front of not only my children, but my wife as well.
20 years from now, my boys are not going to remember the job I had, they are going to remember whether or not I spent time with them.
My father’s job took him overseas to other countries for the majority of my childhood. I come home every night, but still fail to give them the time they deserve.
My boys deserve the best. I need to be the best I can be for my boys.
While I should be fired, I will never quit.
