Fathers and Sons

Captain America thought he had a young sidekick in Bucky. My wing man shares a room in my house and he apparently wants little to do with anybody but his old man. (And to tell you the truth, I ain't complaining about it one bit!)Since the boy could…Continue

I had the opportunity this past weekend to take my family - me, wife, 4yo daughter, and 18mo son - to a family Bar-B-Q. My cousins were celebrating their daughter's first birthday. They have a huge in-ground pool and, since I've been trying to teach…Continue

The Talk

While giving my 2yo son a bath yesterday, he realized (or at least this was the first time I noticed him doing it) that he could massage his penis with the wash rag to give himself an erection. He looked amazed. After letting it subside a bit, he…Continue

I want to know how other fathers handle nudity around their sons? My son is young (3), so it's not a big deal so far. Obviously, I am modeling the potty and there is an occasional time he joins my shower. My wxperience growing up was extremely…Continue

Happy Fathers' Day, Gentlemen!

Welcome to the group, Sean. Yes, traffic does come in waves... feast or famine and all that. But we're glad to have you aboard and I look forward to getting to know you.

Fostering to adopt! That some exciting stuff. My wife and I were foster parents for some 7 years or so. Although we never adopted any of the children - they were all teenagers with ties to their bio families - we remained in contact with several of them for years after they left our home.

Feel free to chime in anywhere and start a few discussions if you want.

Seems like it has been a while since someone has posted on here.  Just wanted to say 'Hi' and check out this group.  I've been a dad to a little guy now for 9 months.  We are fostering him with the hopes to adopt him.  It has been great to watch him grow and can't wait to see what adventures are in store for us when he is older!

That's a really useful list. Thanks for sharing.

I remember the volcano project. Good times.

Middle School construction project with the boy.  Time to build the paper mache volcano!

So while camping this last weekend I was convincing Max, the three year old who is currently potty training, to pee on a tree.
"Pee on this tree Max, it has your name on it"
To which he replies, "Tree's don't have names."
The next time; "Why don't you pee on this tree, It has you name all over it"
"Trees don't have names on them, just leaves"
Then: "Max, why don't you pee over here on this tree?"
He walks up to a different tree and starts to pee, "No, this tree. It has my name!"

Johnny, I totally agree! The world would be a much better place if real men were stepping up and helping to grow more real men.
