I think I am starting to get that ‘Dad Immune System’ that comes with being a father.
See, I used to get sick regularly. Every month or so I would get a cold/flu and be pretty useless for a few days and it would take me about a week to get over it. But next week is Bean’s 2 month birthday and I haven’t been sick. I actually haven’t been sick since a month or so before he was born, maybe even a little longer than that. So along with this daddy immune system, I must be doing something right. 🙂
I felt the beginnings of a sore throat, something that is normally a precursor to being sick, on Wednesday and was worried about getting sick and taking care of him. But that night Bean slept 8 straight hours. So my new immune system, along with the extra sleep made all the difference and I’m now feeling awesome.
I love being a dad.
