Publisher's Description

When I found out my wife, Christine, was pregnant, I had no idea what I was thinking or feeling, and no clue what I should be thinking or feeling. Christine had daily heart-to-hearts with her girlfriends and a stack of parenting books by her bed. I had lots of questions with no answers. So I started writing. It was either that, or try to ignore the whole thing – a choice that became increasingly difficult as Christine’s belly became increasingly swollen. Rookie Dad is the story of a young husband and father learning how to pay attention to his family’s changing size and shape. It’s a story filled with hard questions, with laughter and tears, and with the unexpected joy of first-time fatherhood. It’s my story – the story of how I became a dad.

    This review was written for Rookie Dad: Thoughts on First-Time Fatherhood .
    It's always a comfort to know you're not alone. David Jacobsen is a thoughtful father and a careful, reflective writer whose essays are an honest picture of the kinds of things us new dads go through. He doesn't try to overstate his opinions, and he's never pushy with advice. He's figuring it out as he goes, just like the rest of us, and he's ready to be honest about the best and the worst of being a new dad. From the pre-pregnancy anxiety to post-baby sex, he gives a good sense of how life-changing a new baby is. His words are entertaining, moving, and wise. He doesn't pretend to be an expert dad who wants to make the rest of us feel inadequate; he's a normal dad who helps the rest of us understand that we're pretty normal too. If David wrote a book every year about the ongoing changes of fatherhood, I'd buy every one of them.
