    I have been raising them since they were 5 months ago 18 months. They are almost 17 and 18. I wouldn't change one thing about my life.

    I'm a single father of a daughter.

    She is something special to me. She has taught me just as much as I have taught her. I love being a dad.

    I like hearing stories of dads taking some time

    out to be with their kids (eg camping, fishing, road trips, etc). When the kids become adults, these are the memories that they would recall. On a sad note, my daughter does not have much of those enjoyable moments with her dad to recall. There won't be for a long, long time...

    I never appreciated my father the way I should

    have through my teen years. I rebelled against his rules, his strictness. It would eventually get so bad that I would leave home on bad terms. Now at 36 I am home again, with my daughter (13) and I am starting to really appreciate him as a father again. I have matured I guess...

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

    This is a good father.

    ... watching a child's face light up when Daddy comes into view. Eyes twinkling in admiration and awe, full smiles and cooing noises, Oooos and aahhhs, delightful giggles and squeals... all from hearing those three precious words from Dad.... Pull My Finger.

    Happy Father's Day to those men

    who are men and real dads. I've never had one, but I see the ones that are and admire them. I think it's tricky to be a good dad as there are so many aspects to it. I can't explain that and maybe it's because Ive never had it that I feel that way

    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.
