Fatherhood Is A Joy, Not A Buzzkill

As I was going through my feeds this morning I ran across a video called “Daddy’s Beer – Unexpected, but very exciting news!“. The video is of a man finding out that he is going to become a father and is gaining views because of how he deals with the news:

He’s reaction is something we’ve all seen before and by itself isn’t something I’d typically write about. What brought me to post this was how the same video was interpreted on the Cheezburger Network‘s Parenting feed: “This Guy is How Every Man ACTUALLY Feels When He’s Told He’ll be a Father“.

No. This is not how every man feels. It may be a perfectly normal but many men are genuinely excited to hear that they are going to be a father. I sure know I was!

I’d much rather see the joyful response like this:

How about you? Were you excited? Were you stressed?
