I was really surprised the transformation of what I could see of my husband after he became a dad for the first time. He spent less time on his gadgets, kept enquiring about her through phone atleast 2-3 times a day, came back early from work and dedicated his total attention to the tot. He was everything I was not, he had the utmost patience to survive all the tantrums my kid did, he sang songs for her, he lulled her to sleep, he carried her to the mall in his arms, he made her smile, yes a hell lot and that includes those tickling times, he walked with her tiny feet, matching her pace, he fed her fruits and juices. And yes my baby reciprocated it too, her first word was not amma, but atha (acha – meaning father) and she clung onto him the moment she laid her eyes on him. On days when he goes to sleep early, she crawls to him after her play and sleeps over him. And because of all this, now I am in love with my husband all over again.
