    “Parenthood has taught me … and I mean, I'm a born and bred New Yorker, you know? Parenthood has taught me patience. Patience. And like, I used to be, you know, a real guy. A guy's guy. With my daughter, I can't be that kind of guy anymore. And … I won't lie to you: sometimes she drives me absolutely crazy. And then sometimes, she's just lying there asleep, and I look at her, and I think: yeah. This is all right. I'm doing all right.”
