    A Daddy’S Letter To His Little Girl (About Her Future Husband)

    As a father of 5 and 3 year old boys,

    it's always one of the best feelings in the world to see a father having so much fun interacting with their children.

    So....yesterday I posted a question in an

    attempt to wish peeps a happy Father's Day. In doing so I was insensitive and eliminated a lot of people who deserved that wish and included some who didn't. A father didn't necessarily contribute DNA. A father is a man who puts his child/children first, disciplines them with...

    Just because I admire a man

    who is a good father that doesn't mean I have daddy issues. I've heard it a few times and is not true at all.

    and dads. Any guy can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a dad.

    A Great Father

    I have a daughter who will be 7 very soon.

    I was the first to hold her and from that moment I was hooked I have never loved anything or one as much as I do my daughter. I cannot fathom how someone could look into the eyes of their baby and not want to love and protect that child for the rest of their lives.

    My father and I did not have the best

    relationship; we were too much alike and always argued. However, now since he is gone, I realized and appreciate the values he instilled in me. For example, he believed that a man should have a job; as long as the family is being taken care of, then all is well. Now there were...

    I think I'm a good father,

    a single father. My daughter has had the choice to live with me or not for the past seven years and she's stayed. I delivered her at home, fed her, cleaned her and nurtured her - singing and reading to her every day (until she outgrew the reading to part at about age 11) I saw...

    Ever since Mom died in '89,

    it's been Pops and me. Dad's a kind of a Manager of the Royal Stables in Abu Dhabi. It doesn't pay much, but he managed to look after us. I am helping out too, but without Pop, I don't know where I'd be. He's trying to fill the gap that Mom left inside both of us, It hurts to...

    My husband would have been a good Father.

    I love him! I was gone for 18 months in a situation where I could only email once a week, and could only talk face to face twice a year. When I got homesick, I would always want my dad. He knows how to make things better. He wants me to happy and follow my dreams. I am a daddy's...
