In 1995, C. Stephen Fouquet’s poignant Notes to My Becca, detailing life with his newborn daughter, introduced a wide audience to the social trend of at-home fathers. In this second edition, featuring photographs and expanded entries, Fouquet offers a touching, practical, and thoughtful look at parenting from a dad’s viewpoint as he addresses the miracle, anxiety, fear, and wonder of becoming a father. The journey is enjoined during the fourteenth week of pregnancy as Fouquet describes the anxiety and excitement that most new expectant fathers feel, seeking guidance from books that ultimately portray dads as “the inept parent.” Through journal entries addressed to his daughter, Fouquet documents the fear of a possible third miscarriage, tumultuous extended-family situations, and normal post-birth parenting stress. But more, he describes the joy of his child’s new life, from first breath to first feedings, first words, and first steps. For parents, acquaintances of parents, or parents-to-be, Notes to My Becca is a wonderful and helpful insight into a very personal life experience.
