We always joke around about what our mutant powers would be. Useful things like being able to talk to Salmonella so I know how long to cook my food. (get it? When my food stops talking to me, it’s done because the Salmonella is dead!)
But now I have discovered that as a new father I really do have powers! And they are awesome. Here they are:
-Can go long periods without bathing.
-High pain threshold on the ends of my arm hair follicles
-Become adept at using one hand for almost everything while holding a baby
-Decreased testosterone levels. (For real! This actually happens!) I guess it makes us less aggressive or something and therefore more nurturing.
-Able to wake up instantly at all hours of the night.
With this great power comes great responsibility. Unfortunately, it also has a weakness. That would be my daughter who can melt my heart in an instant with a smile. As seen about 2/3 of the way through this video of Von Bebe waking up in the morning. Literally, I took this first thing yesterday morning. This is how she wakes almost every single day. Enjoy.
