Fatherhood can be a hilarious, nerve-wracking, heart-warming, eye-opening journey for new dads.

That's why a Connecticut father, Peter Fragola, decided to start documenting all the funny things he's learning along the way.

Using the name, Carmine, Peter started a daddy blog titled: 'Sorry Son: Chronicles of a New Dad.'

One of our favorite entries involved Peter's idea to get a feel for the nervousness, excitement, and determination it takes for his 13-month-old, Jackson, to learn to walk.... by learning to walk on stilts.

At first, it seemed like Peter had it down as he took slow, wobbly steps with a little help from a friend.


But that was soon followed up with a little reality check.

Watch what happened when he got too confident and decided to let go of his friend's hands:



Not as easy as it looks!

Luckily, Peter says his little boy has a better sense of balance than his father as he learns to maneuver through the world.

And now his dad has a better sense of the pain of learning to walk again.
