"Being a father... I can't help feeling that, by comparison with being a mother, being a father is rather abstract business" (Coetzee).
J.M. Coetzee couldn't have written it better... in my experience, being a father is truly abstract business. Most of the time I feel like the Moon in orbit around the Sun (Mommy). Hmmm... I always thought it was supposed to be the other way around, at least that's what astrology and society tell us.
