    I Don't Know When It Started.

    I wasn't baby crazy growing up, instantly jealous of the little blue eyed girl dressed in Hello Kitty or the brown-eyed boy dressed in OshKosh overalls complete with tiny replicas of his father's boots.   But, somewhere in the last decade, the urge began to grow into a...

    I really would love to be a father one day.

    Definitely on my list of dreams. It might be far off in the future, but the idea of having a child to love, to take care of....to just watch them grow up and get all "Papa Wolf" when they're at that dating age...brings a huge smile to my face. I can just see myself tucking...

    I Want To Be A Father Some Day

    My female friends always talk about their maternal clocks ticking and their ovaries exploding when they see kids around. Well, I definitely hear my paternal clock ticking away. Sometimes it's almost deafeningly loud. I recently spent some time with a friend. He and I were both...

    I love being able to hold babies

    and play with toddlers, I've always have after I held my younger brother for the first time. Being a father would be such an amazing thing and when I have kids I'll never let go. I would want to be the best dad ever, like the majority of men with kids but I really mean it. I...

    I have always wanted to be a father

    since I was a child. My father was very abusive and made sure that we always doubted ourselves and our worth to the point of attempted suicide at the age of 8. Now I have an amazing girlfriend and we have been together for almost 2 months. She has an 8 year old boy and 2 year...

    Greatest Wish

    I can't quite explain it. I know it sounds odd, saying it and sounding so sure at a, relatively, young age, which is why I've never mentionef it to those who know me face-to-face. All I know is that deep down in my heart of hearts, I long for the day that I become a father. To...

    I dunno. I've always wanted to be a dad. I have always wanted to provide a child with a more loving home than I had. Maybe I'm insane? I dunno. I just know I would like to be a father.

    I'm so scared of becoming a father.

    Really I want to have a kid so bad but I'm not sure I'll ever be mature enough to handle the responsibility. I hope I'm wrong about that though.. :/

    Drifting On A Memory- As I lay here in this

    hotel, I can't help but recall the past. Mostly of my life in the states with an old friend and my kid niece. I say niece, but really we're not blood related. I just thought it'd be awkward if she asked me what she was to call me and I had no answer. So uncle it is. Her...

    The Best If Possible.

    I really hope I'll be the best father ever one day.I guess the fact that I missed my dad's affection as a kid made me want a nice,loving family and give my children everything that I've deprived.

    Someday... Maybe...

    For the past four years, I've dreamt of the day that my first child would be brought into the world. I know I'm too young to think about it right now, but it's still a dream of mine. I think I might even be going a little over-board with these dreams. I mean, I thought of names...

    I think its the whole idea of family actually.

    To be able to love completely your partner and your children, to be able to name them and be proud of them. To have a career to support them and a home to protect them. To spend time with them :3

    Warning : A bit of a soft side coming out.

    I'm not gonna rush having a kid but one day, eventually, I want a child. I've never had a father figure but I know what NOT to do and what NOT to say to a child and not to mention - I've been helping raise my sister who's 5 years younger than me. I'm going to love my child...
