Advice for overwhelmed new dads

Well, for the overwhelming feeling of being a new dad, I suggest you to be with your son or daughter and just connect. Watch him, smell it, hold it, and feel it. The overwhelming, unfortunately, comes from money. "I need money, and I don't have money. How am I going to do this?" Kids don't ask for money when they're born. They don't ask you for a check. They don't ask you for a credit card. They don't ask you to buy them a thing. I think it's the presence and the love and just being there, that's what they need. And I think the overwhelming eventually will go away when you hold that and you feel it.
