With Father's Day approaching I've been thinking about what I learned in my first 16 or so months of being a dad. And one thing that stands out is how intense the learning curve really is. Not that I've got it all figured out, but when my son was born I felt as lost and helpless as he must have. Then you start to get your footing, as he does, and feel both more and less stupid. You start to know what you don't know and know that that's ok (as Donald Rumsfeld might say...). The whole experience is humbling, illuminating, weird, and awesome.
