Thank you, "kpunk" for acknowledging the dads out there! About "how to become a dad?" You could be a Big Brother to a child? You wouldn't necessarily be a dad, but being a good role model is pretty rewarding. Not to mention... priceless, to that child.
Lon, good to hear you got to talk with your "baby girl" yesterday. How lucky/blessed she is to have such a loving, and supportive dad!! And, how cool that she gets to go to see a Kiss concert too. * jealous*
Scavenger, how cool is that. You must be real close to your niece.
Yesterday I went to the theater to see the new Superman movie with my kids, and my oldest daughters boyfriend and his father. Had a great time!
