That's great news Robert! I think learning the *** of the child is a good thing since you can prepare for it with the correct clothes, etc.

Jim can probably provide some advice on the boyfriend thing, given he is surrounded by stunningly beautiful ladies in his household.

It's not too early to start thinking of when to take your daughter on her first cruise. No telling what will be in Mobile then. I can't see the Fantasy staying there for too many years.

Thanks for the compliment Dave. Yes, my problems are just beginning I fear. The first boyfriend argument has started and is now in the "not speaking to each other" phase. I have been informed by my wife that I'm not supposed to be happy about this yet its more than fine with me as now I don't have to worry about them being together (at least until the fight is over)...

Bill Engval does a great comedy bit about the boyfriend coming over for the first time. Its a must watch for any father with girls - "Just remember boy, I'm not afraid of going BACK to prison"

Congratulations, Robert and wife! Jim can definitely give you some pointers. His daughters are beautiful and so is his wife. I can still remember pulling up into my driveway late from a date and telling my boyfriend my dad was really mellow and wouldn't be mad. Boy was I surprised, he was at my boyfriend's door before I had unlocked my door. He ordered me into the house and didn't return for some time. I never got to go out with the boy again, he was too scared. I still chuckle every time I think about it.

Congratulations, Robert!

Yes, Jim would be the one for advice. I have not met his family, but have seen many pictures. And what has been said is true, he is surrounded by beautiful ladies.

I bet you are going to be one doting dad.

I would be lying to you if I said that I was not scared to death. You can google anything but I can't find a single plausible resource on helping a father deal with an adolescent daughter. Yes, I know that is years away and, fortunately, my wife gets to have "the talk" with our future teen. Oh well, I think that I will start a new lido discussion on dealing with my anxieties. (I look forward to Jim's input as well as anything else someone can offer.) My parents gave me a book by Dr. Spock on baby care but I am reluctant to read a child care book written by a Klingon .

I thought Spock was a Vulcan?

Just relax and take it one step at a time and I'm sure you'll be fine.
