    Don't call me Mr. Mom!

    Single Father at 52


    When I was 48,  I found out that I was going to be a Father.  Whoa!  It hit me like a train.  The thoughts that went racing through my head were out of control. What the heck is a guy my age having kids.  I was scared, I was mad, I was confused & nothing was making sense, yet I was curious.  So for the next 7 months I waited and I experienced what only can be described as "eye opening".  From the morning sickness, to the glow.  So I waited and finally the day came. As I watched my first born coming into this world, I finally realized what Real Love was. Everyone always talks about a Mother’s love, but a Fathers love is a Fathers Love. When I learned that I was going to be a Father again, this time it was full speed ahead. Now here I am 4 years later and I couldn't be happier.  Even though their Mother & I are seperated I still spend all my free time with them. To this day I still don’t get any sleep. Not because the girls keep me up, it’s because when they are sleeping I still find myself watching over them, They are and will always be my greatest achievement.
