I have this fear that Chase won't love our baby, that he won't connect with him since he hardly "interacts" with our baby in utero. I feel like I'm crazy. Chase probably thinks so too because I tell him this almost every day. It seriously consumes me!!! The funny thing is I really believe our baby already knows Chase. Whenever he gets a little crazy that it's painful for me, Chase can calm him down so easily just by rubbing my stomach and "talking" to him. I really do believe that. ...I'm crazy, aren't I..
I think it's the Korean in me. Traditionally, Korean dads are usually removed from raising their children. They mostly provide for the family and discipline the children. The mothers are the nurturers.
Even though I know Chase will be just as invested in raising our children as I will be, it's hard to get out of this cultural mindset that I've lived with and seen for most of my childhood. It does help that he's the most nicest and caring man I've ever known. I really don't know how I got so lucky. I'm really excited to see him as a dad, even with this fear of mine because I know he's going to make me forget I've ever had it.
