  • Forum Reply: Re: Modern Day Dads

    I think the biggest changes I've seen are that Dads (working or SAHD) are more engaged with their children now than ever before. I can't wait to come home and hang out with my boy, and it's tough to leave on business trips. But, I can't say the same for Dad's from the previous generation...

  • Forum Thread: Hawk eyes over dad...

    I am trying, but having a hard time keeping my eye off of the way my husband is with our three month old.

  • Forum Reply: Re: Should dad be out of picture?

    It seems that most women in their heart of hearts know the answers to their own questions.

I believe there is a rythym to life which sometimes involves...
