For everyone who is a real dad, a dad who is there for his kids (that includes step dads, uncles or anyone who is there for a kid) I stand up and cheer for you. Every child needs a father in their life – a father who is there with unconditional love. A father who has the balls to take responsibility for the child he has created. Real men take care of their kids.

When you bring a baby or child home, whether you give birth to it or adopt it or foster or live with any child, you bring home the entire universe in a kid sized package. And something you’re never told…You NEVER know who you’re bringing home with you.Your child is not your clone. Your child is someone with their own will and their own view – right from the start.Throw out the baby and child care books because this little person is going to prove they’re ALL WRONG. And you’ll have more fun than you EVER imagined.So what does a woman who muses on mom stuff teach the children in her life?
