My advice: Stop with him....don't have {5} like I did. Although I of course love all of my children, things would have been easier with out having so many babies. My youngest is 10 about to turn 11 and she is the apple of my eye. I love that little girl than I love myself.

And I also was a hands-on dad. I changed more nigttime diapers than my wife due to the fact that she was and still is a night worker. She loves night shift. {she's an RN}.

So get ready for the little vomit episodes at 3 AM and you have to bathe the baby while she or he is sleeping though it all!...LOL. Then throw the sheets into the tub, rinse the vomit, then throw them into the washing machine and all that you want to do is go back to sleep....LOL
Yup.

I don’t mean this to sound harsh but you’re only working 8 hour days. Just take care of business like men do.

I was wondering if any of you guys have any input on how to balance my young career and a newborn. I want to help my wife as much as possible, and still maintain my ability, attention, and energy level at work.
I’d love to have some input from guys who’ve done it and just looking for what to do and what not to do. Both professionally and at home. We work 6:30 til 2:30 and I go back Monday.
Mainly: what were some things you did to help you balance home and work?
This ain’t the Dr. Phil Show.

You can't get pissed the youth don't know anything when you aren't willing to teach them. I didn't know you were born 50 years old with experience to match.

I bet you're the kind of guy who just has his helper run lengths of pipe and never shows him the detailed stuff.

Lol! We can share dad advice and bad dad jokes here! More of the latter IMHO!
“Stop acting like a *, Craig” is advice in itself honestly. I just feel like I can and want to contribute more than bringing home paychecks and complaining about the lasagna…
When the lasgna’s not the greatest, you can ask her if there’s anything else going on and let her vent if she needs to.
Great thread, glad you started it.

Best advice I can give is don't have kids. If you have some don't have anymore.
