    I Went Forth and Multiplied

    My kids are awesome. Without them I'm just some guy that says "clean your room" for no apparent reason. Seriously though, I have incredible kids. My daughter was born when I was 18 and my son less than a year later. It's hard to believe that they are almost...

    Suspended Father

    I have waited so long for the day to become father, but unfortunately my wife took the baby away and left me. She didn't have any valid reason to do that, she only wanted to live with her mom. She doesn't feel or realize the mess she left in my life and the pains I 'm suffering...

    My Little Buddies :)

    Sometimes they drive me mad, to tears even but then its always the people you love who do. Its like penance for all the cuddles, kisses and wonderful giggles that fill my ears on an almost daily basis. And I'd gladly pay it again a million times over.

    Its the best thing I've ever done,and i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. When your stepson tells you, you are his dad and his father was just the ***** donor.

    Big Daddy

    I dont think that one could imagine knowing what being a father is like until the time your first child is born. You see dads with their kids all the time, in fact you see your own father, and know how much he loves you, but it does not really sink in until it...

    The Most Important Thing In The World Is Being A Good Father

    Not to start off on a downer but, my father was rarely around. I realized later that he had a chip on his shoulder from an early age. I don't think he loved himself and therefore he couldn't love my mother or me. He was abusive to my mother and she didn't take it. She separated...

    While shaving today, my little girl looked on

    with quiet interest. I was in deep consideration when it was interrupted by a question. "What are you doing?" "I'm shaving, baby" I answered while I rinsed my razor. "Why do you have to shave?" she asked. I pondered a way to answer to appease the mind of a five year old...

    I Want Him To Tell His Father Everything.

    Though I am a mother, I love acting like a father to my son. I know when sons need moral support even while they're at young like talking to them and giving them a man to man talk. Though I can't be manly by way of speaking, But I know how to be tough and act like a man, by way...

    My Daughter

    My sweet daughter is my life. Ever since I first laid eyes on her I knew I'd gladly give my life up for hers. We are very close and she tells me everything happening in her life. I can't imagine my life without her.
