    She is nine years old

    and I went to her room to say good night and she held out her arms for a hug that turned into a cuddle. She knows how to bring a smile to my face. I hope she never out grows a hug from daddy.

    The Proudest Day Of My Life

    I have a wonderful, loving daughter who's 24 and a wonderful mother in her own right. There are a couple of people here on EP who know she is not my biological daughter. The couple of people on here also know I have no biological children of my own. My daughter came from my...

    Yesterday was Spoil Daughter Day.

    Once a year, we celebrate the anniversary of our court victory. You see, three years ago, we won the right to spend more time together. If you've seen Kramer vs Kramer, you'll know what I'm talking about. Anyway, here was the itinerary: 10 a.m. – bought doughnuts; collected...

    My youngest (11) had stayed home from school

    due to a sore throat. She ask me if I knew the worse thing about faking being sick. Intrigued where this was going I told her no but I would guess it's getting me to believe you when you really are. She replied emphatically she wasn't faking it this time. Amused I ask what was...

    "Remember when I said I didn't believe in God?" Yes? "I was testing you, to see if you would love me no matter what. You passed. I do believe in God really." ......................Yay? Anyway, I forgot the best part. She brought this up later and said, "Dad, you told me you...

    I Love My Beautiful Daughter, Aliana <3

    Aliana was born August 11th by c-section early in the morning. She weighed 8lbs and 4 ounces and she's 21 inches long. Quite a big baby! I love her so much! More than anything! When I first found out I was pregnant, to be honest, I was scared. I didn't know what I was going to do...

    She's too much like me.

    ... When I'm close to someone affectionate teasing becomes part of the relationship- I asked The Little Blonde Monster if she'd bring me a coffee, she had a saucy grin on her lips and twinkle in her eye when she brought me the mug saying "Princess" on it....'Here you go Daddy...

    My 16 yo daughter has done something

    that I never experienced, and I am so proud of her for it. She broke up with someone (if you have read any of my previous stories I met my wife when I was 15). Last week she confided in me (not even her mom knew) that she wanted to break up with her boyfriend. He was boring...

    I am not the perfect dad.

    I regret thinking things sometimes but I love her and I am always going to love her. She is my child. I am not going to let guilt consume me as to not being able to be a dad who cares for and loves her, either.

    Things Every Father Should Know

    Chances are when you left the hospital with your baby girl you were not handed an owners manual. Girls are complicated creatures. You can't just tell them to shake it off when they scrape their knee. They are miniature women that cry, get emotional, are moody, and have unique...

    Kid is amazing. She's suddenly developed a huge

    liking for the 'sweet' peppers I always eat. She likes the yellow ones for their sweeter taste, the orange ones have more bite, and the red ones are unexciting but juicy....she totally cracks me up with her descriptions. She's still passing on green though. We've agreed that...

    People often make daughters out to be a burden

    in their tweens. That's the wrong attitude and I think it hurts girls. My daughter is 12 and not a burden. Sure, we are going through an explorative phase since she has never been through puberty before and I have never been a father to a tween daughter, but I love every minute...
