    My 10 year old daughter keeps bugging me asking

    questions about how to knit! Wtf do I know about knitting!?!?! Sigh..... Off to learn how to knit in 10 minutes or less, thank you, YouTube. I can't just say I don't know how and expect her to go learn while I sit on my duff. Fatherhood means you learn how to knit, dammit.

    Though my daughter is no longer with me,

    I will always be her dad, no one can take that away from me. After my loss a group of her classmates sent me this in her memory. It is now framed and hangs on my bedroom wall. I'm posting this in hopes that someone finds it comforting and maybe it will help them cope with their...

    My girl always wears short skirts

    and dresses and night gowns around her dad. She often props her legs up and it's clear she has no panties on. Her dad often just sits back and says nothing. I like it. It really arouses me. Is this normal? Abnormal?

    Being a father is the one thing

    that brings me the most joy in life. The little things my children do just light up my life constantly. I'm grateful to have the title of daddy.

    I am a dad of a wonderful 20 month old son.

    It's great being a dad. The trials and tribulations of having a son has honestly been a true joy to me. I love my son with all my heart. Just one problem....now I really, really hate my father. Yes. I said it. I do. I actually have had no verbal communication or seen him since...

    Changing

    When they were younger I find new reason why I loved being a dad every day. It was fun to teach the kids things I knew.  I was so touched when they would ask me to teach them how to play the guitar or beg me to jam for them.   Now, they are older, and I'm...

    Two Prizes

    I have been given two prizes for I don't know what.  I am determined to do the best I can with and for them.  So far, they accept my authority on most things.  Sometimes I am overruled by mommy (mommy said x is often the end of the conversation) When our first...

    I love my children I have always wanted to use

    positive reinforcement as a tool to curb and mold the behaviors I want for my children. My son has many admirable qualities but I have yet to remove procrastination from them. His work ethic in school lacks and his personal health (hygiene & proper rest) need to improve. I...

    Being A Dad

    I think that I am a good dad, and for the last 13 or so years being a good dad has been all that mattered to me. As any parent must know, your children are your life, and doing the best that you can for them, is a priority. Creating memories that they will remember as they get...

    I wasn't going to be a father.

    Father, that word seem to heavy. I didn't think I was fit to be one. Bringing in another life to this hostile world... I couldn't even handle my weight. How could I be responsible for another life? A lot of things in my life just happened. My marriage happened. My job. My...

    I'm going to be honest.

    If I ever have a baby girl. I would be the only person who can take her a bath. Her father won't ever take her a bath. Fathers these days fucck they're daughters. They would sit here & argue with you saying "it's normal that's my kid I can do whatever I want with her". Do that...

    I Am A Dad...

    You really just want to be a dad, but that seems to threaten someone how sad, she has tried so hard to take it away from you, she has said bad things about you, and made it so hard for you to see them, I love seeing them with her, she is their mum, and there is just something...
