It’s very hard to explain how you feel emotionally. That moment they’re born, and you become a daddy twice in two minutes. That feeling like a rabbit in the headlights often springs to mind.

Feeling The Guilt As A Dad

For around nine or so days I have been feeling quite a bit of dad guilt when it comes to my five year old twin girls.
