Well it is a strange auld world.
I came fae a generation of Child birth was left to the women folk.
Now there is 3 months Paternity Leave.
I cant figure that one out.
When my first one was born in 1976, my contribution was as much overtime as I could get. Expensive wee buggers.
When they started eating solids was the time for Pop to step in. The solids make the cleanup easier both ends.
The first 3 months I was to scared I’d break him. Like working with walnut burl veneer. Not a rush or rough job.
So what do the young fathers do for those first 3 months?
I can finally reveal this for the first time.
They do ironing,
One of my jolly rouges just returned after an e-x-t-e-n-d-e-d paternity leave.
This is how he has been busy for the past few months.
I think it shows up in his new sanding technique.
What ya think?
