  • First time dad as a career fireman

    Any tips or hints for a first time dad as a career fireman? No offense to vollies, I started out as one, but I figured ask where I wanted answered. I know with the 24/48 schedule I'll have the bulk of alone time with the baby and wondered if y'all had some tips from previous experience, not to mention arguments that may ensue due to schedule. Thanks for any words of wisdom you may have.

      Okay here we go.

      Does your wife work? If yes, get up at night with the baby when you are home so she can sleep. You can nap during the day when the baby naps. She can't. Help with the housework, it won't kill you to vacuum once in a while, do the dishes, dust, make dinner on occasion so when she comes home she can relax and enjoy dinner with you. It really doesn't take that long to do those things and the difference it makes is amazing. Frankly, even if your wife doesn't work, doing those things on occasion makes a big difference anyways.
      Crazy, but that's how it goes
      Millions of people living as foes
      Maybe it's not too late
      To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

          This is probably the best advice you'll ever receive.
