My daughter will be 5 next month. This past weekend I was on a seemingly never ending cycle of being the best daddy in the world, the meanest daddy, not having a daughter any more because I didn't love her, and just plain getting yelled at. Oh the joy of snow days making for long weekends.

I have a soon to be 12 year old. I live in Houston. She is a handful.

Hey Michael, congrats on becoming the father of a daughter!  I'm sure you're finding out already that it can be an interesting, fun, and aggrevating experience.  My daughter turns 21 this year and is in college.  Cherish the little things like walking around the block and playing on the swing with her.  They will be some of your best memories!

Nature of relationships

Hi all,Have been thinking of relationships recently and as I didn't grow up with happily married parents I didn't have a good role model to understand what they are about.But a theory I have is that a relationship is not so much about the person you are together with, it's more about having a commitment to the relationship itself.  So it doesn't matter so much whether your wife annoys you or pleases you, whatever happens you are committed to the idea of being togeher and forming this…See More
