    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...

    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...

    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 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 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...

    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'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.. :/

    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.

    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

    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.
