Louis CK on fatherhood
"Be a dad. Don't be 'Mom’s assistant'
That's depressing, just waiting for her to write you a list, walk around a store staring at it, calling her from the cereal aisle to make sure you got the right thing.
Be a man.
Make your own list.
Fathers have skills that they never use at home.
You run a landscaping business and you can’t dress and feed a 4-year-old? Take it on.
Spend time with your kids and have your own ideas about what they need. It won’t take away your manhood; it will give it to you.
I did that.
I spent more time with my kids.
And I found out that I’m a pretty bad father.
I make a lot of mistakes and I don't know what I'm doing. But my kids love me. Go figure."
