My husband puts his girls above all else, treats their mother with love and respect, remembers he is Dad first yet manages to be their best playmate.

My dh adores our ds. He's so loving, and nurturing. He reads to him, plays with him, and loves cuddle time. Our ds is only 7 months though, but he is already a daddys boy. He cries when dh leaves for work.

a sense of humor!!!!!

you cant take life tooo seriously after all none of us get out alive!

Seriously though. My husband is a good family leader. He puts God first, others second and himself last. He once dressed as Dora the Explorer purple back pack and all. On FATHERS DAY to win our DD (the almost 5) tickets to a show.It would have been easy for him to say "its fathers day and I just want to stay home" but he had planned this for two weeks.

Incedentally he won tickets but not the grand prize.

 My hubby is so wonderful. He spends as much time with our son as possible. He is great at not only playing with our son but also halping out with him as well.

A good dad; is a dad that will always be there for his child. He is patient and shows self-control. He shows them love but also discipline. Teaches them to respect him, themselves, and others. Provides for their needs. He gives direction, lives as an example, and forgives when a mistake is made. He will be there for support when his child is 1 and beyond 21.
