You can be childlike without being childish. A child always wants to have fun. Ask yourself, 'Am I having fun?'
The surprising thing about fatherhood was finding my inner mush. Now I want to share it with the world.
It ain't easy to break out of a mold, but if you do your work, people will ultimately see what you're capable of. Too often, people find it easier to make assumptions and stick with what they believe. They put you in a place and it makes their job easier. The good people constantly search for something different.
If you try hard enough, you can bend the spoon; you can shift reality.
I had no expectations about fatherhood, really, but it's definitely a journey I'm glad to be taking. Number one, it's a great learning experience. When my mother told me it's a 24/7 job, she wasn't kidding.
