August 14, 2009



I laughed when I saw this title in my inbox. My middle son asks all of the time when he is getting a "second dad."

I had introduced my boys to one guy I was sure was going to stick around for a very long time, but unfortunately did not (ouch it still hurts). That was painful to the boys, maybe even more so than it was to me, but yet, as recently as two nights ago when tucking him in he asked me again when he would get a second dad. All I can tell him is when I find someone who will love them just as much as I do, and since that is a lot, it may take a very long time.
