Thanx Ange, we all just do what we must. Sometimes it's not hard to want to be more friend and less parent when we are on our own, even me at my advanced age and I should know better. Kudos to all Dad's and single parents out there who allow the "friend" part of their relationship with their kid(s) to "take a bullet" in order to preserve the proper entity of their parenthood. We SHOULD be both parent and friend, but sometimes it's easier said than done. It's what makes us HEROES to our kids when they've grown up and realized what it all means.
As of the 21 of June I will be a non paid member so I am going to make my rounds Happy Fathers day Happy 4th Of July Happy ThanksGiving Merry Chrismas & Happy New Years But lets keep this on Fathers day I just wanted to make my rounds in case I cant later.
AH but Sharp tomorrow maybe they will not be on. They will be having "their" day. So yes a Happy Fathers day to all of you guys out there and to all of us women who raised ours without that male role in their life. No my childrens daddy was and is an excellent daddy and they know they are loved tremendously. But divorce takes them away and we still have to play both mom and dad.
I never had one so could not know that feeling. But touche to all of you great dads on MM and have a Happy day will your children if able....S4U
My X never spent any time with my/our kids the whole time they were growing up. then couldn't figure out why they never talk to him unless they need $$ or their car worked on. Finally told him, he never was there to bond with them, what do you expect? Yelling at them doesn't count. When my daughter visits her friends in Dad's hometown, I ask if she will visit him and his new Mrs. She says "And why would I do that?" And doesn't. Pretty sad. And we were together until they were 24 and 26 so he had plenty of time. So if you are a dad, please BE a dad. Don't just spend $$ on them, spend some of YOU on them. And thank your mom too, if it wasn't for her, your dad wouldn't be a father! Happy Father's Day!
Not to mention the MOM's who have played both Mom, and Dad..
HAPPY FATHERS DAY TOO ALL !!!!!
Ahhh ... thanks love!! And to be quite mean ... I thought I'd share:
My daughter just gave me a Father's Day gift ... and told me I was the most awesome mother/father in the world. When I asked her if she remembered to send her father a card or something ... she replied: "I thought I'd give my biological sp*erm donor a phone call in the morning, tomorrow".
Guys ... if you have a child that you've not been responsible to ... remember ... it's never too late to make ammends!!
To the rest of you ... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!
Funny you mentioned that, My kids spent 18 years in the same house with their father, he took no responsibility then, and he hasnt taken one since our divorce, I agree Suzan, my daughter says the same thing, and so does my son, they haven't even heard from their father since Christmas, and it was only because they ran into him at their grandparents home.
Dads dont forget your kids, it will come back to haunt you later, mine are proof, they want nothing to do with their father, they always thank me for being their for them , through everything, its very sad that some of these men cant see what they missed!!!
He is the one missing out!

Happy Father's Day to my own Daddy. Thank God he can't see his little girl on here.
Thank God mine doesn't know how much time I waste on here...I could be spending it w/him :(
