Happy Fathers Day
#1
Happy Fathers Day to all those dads out there

- The StepDads
- The Unofficial Dads
- The Single Parent Dads
- The Two Dad Families 
- The ones who cant see their kids for whatever reason
- The ones who dont know where their kids are
- The ones who have been failed by the Family Court System
- The ones who travel miles just to spend a couple of hours in a contact centre
- The ones who wake up have have (probably half eaten) breakfast given to them
- The ones who's kids will appear today and spend the entire day fussing over them
- The guys who are sitting in a hospital waiting nervously to become dads
- The dads that are now grandads (and lets not forget, Great Grandads here)
- And the friends who you treat like your dad (but will never let them know!)


I hope you enjoy your socks, slippers, beers, etc that your given - the biggest things you can give your child is the gift of time and love... they never forget that, don't worry about the shiny and beepy technology crap - that will come and go, you guys will always be their dad.

Happy Fathers Day

And you too Invisible. I do have my son here on Father's Day and he is not alienated and refusing to sign me a card like last year - he gave me one he had made at school. So court orders really can help.

Same to you all, very lucky I have my son today. Going out for a family meal, got two cards and some small gifts. Nothing compares to spending it with your children. Hope everyone has a nice day.

I got a lovely hand made card & a shop one from my little monsters & a Toblerone!

I have seen mine today obviously as I still live with them & the ex but the house sale is going through so I'll become the "every other weekend" Dad in a month or so.

Hats off to all of you Dads fighting the system, dealing with nightmare ex's, struggling with contact & everything that's being thrown at you all just to try & deny you being a loving father.

Happy Fathers Day & my best wishes to all of you.

Happy Father's Day to all of you.

I was fortunate enough to have my kids yesterday. Unfortunately they told me that STBX had told them they weren't to get me a card or any gifts, which is fine, I'm not bothered by that.

What did bother me was that she told them to do a home made Father's Day card for her BF and buy him chocolates. No-one I've spoken to thinks that's even remotely reasonable. He doesn't even have kids...

Thanks II - A very good post - My daughter took me for a curry that I paid for, still very nice though...

I got a pint glass with "Worlds greatest dad" on it, so they know how to make me smile and that I like beer! Best thing is the ex helped them find it, order it and pay for it (out of their pocket money as they should be) Big Grin
