Default Any Man Can Be A Father But It Takes Someone Special To Be A Daddy


What does it mean to YOU to be a father? What is the best thing about fatherhood?

This last December my daddy died. (Yes, I have always called him "daddy".) I am not ashamed to admit that it brought me to my knees. I was beyond devastated. It was one of the most difficult times I have ever faced. With Fathers Day approaching, (June 16th) I decided that instead of falling back into the abyss, I want to celebrate dads and remember the joy he brought into my life.

What are your best memories of your father while you were growing up?

I firmly believe the following quote, so biology isn't part of this. If you're raising kids (or raised kids) you're a father.

Quote:
"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy".

I never had a father. He got my mom pregnant and hauled butt.

Anyway, I have {5} kids. And I love them all. My little tiny girl who is the youngest is now {7} yrs old. Man I love these kids. They'll never know unless and until they become parents.

I often say a switch gets flipped 'on' when one becomes a parent. They talk about maternal instinct, well I am here to say that there is something called paternal instinct and I have a really strong case of it.....

What it takes to be a father = 2 minutes of fun work.

What it takes to be a dad = Everything you got and more.

Reward for being a dad = a few moments that are worth more than can be described. A smile that warms your heart, a pride when your child reaches a goal or achievement and you feel proud of them.

my mom split up with my biological father when I was a baby and when I was 1 year old my dad came in to the picture. My dad raised me and taught me most of what I know about life.

My dad is my hero. What do you know I ended up pretty much like him. I found my wife when she already had a daughter and I let them both in to my heart and we have since had 2 boys and I love and treat my daughter just like had she always been mine. Now she is mine because I adopted her.

I have always thought to myself "if I manage to be half the dad he was then I'm still doing pretty good" that is how I know I have one of the best dad's ever.

When I was 5, daddy knew everything.

When I was 10, daddy knew most things.

When I was 12 dad started slipping.

When I was 15, dad lost his mind.

When I was 16, he should have been committed.

When I was 18, that man lived to make me miserable.

When I was 22, dad lightened up a little.

When I was 25, I dad finally wised up.

When I was 30, I wondered what dad would do.

When I was 40, I did what dad would do.

When I was 45, I asked dad what to do.

Now I am in my mid 50's and I sure wish dad was here to tell me what to do.
