I didn't click through when the publicist sent me the link for Phillip Toledano's essay about reluctant fatherhood, because I thought it was going to be all about his own dying father or whatever. Which is fine and good and all, just outside the demo here.
But then Jason Kottke mentioned it, and kind of trumped it with the piece of parenting advice so solid, it should be embroidered into a decorative pillow: "you fake it 'til you make it." Happy birthday, Jason!
