I work abroad and some days I do cry.... Because Dads cry too... If I took the time to list,  all my loves in life.  I'd start with those special moments,  with my daughters and my wife.  And when I spend my time at work,  and time goes really slow.  I'll think of them alone at home,  and wish that I could go.  I'll watch them when they're sleeping,  hold them when they cry.  I'll always be there for them,  until the day I die.  I like to make them smile,  their laughter warms my heart.  I don't know what I would do,  if we were ever torn apart.  They're my greatest inspiration,  in everything I do.  I've but three words for them,  and that is I love you.  My life with them is like a rainbow,  arched high above a stream  Being with them everyday Is only but a dream  And as my tears roll down for you Remember....Dads cry too  #family #daddysprincess #daddyslittlegirls #dadscrytoo #dadsabroad #oilrigdads #fathersofdaughters #fathers #lovemydaughter #lovemywife #workawaydad
Kevin Married (Nonmonogamous) Daughters: “Batgirl” (8) and “Black Cat” (6) Philadelphia Area  My wife and I have been nonmonogamous for over fifteen years -way before we had our daughters. Something that affected was the number of grown-ups that my girls found themselves around. As a result, both of our daughters learned how to navigate communication with a variety of adults to get what they want. Typically, that’s about securing snacks behind my back or inviting guests to an upcoming tea party. However, in at least one case, it meant getting information. * One day when my back was turned, my older daughter cornered a romantic partner of mine and asked her “Do you love my dad?” Me and that partner weren’t quite "there" yet. But my kids could spot the familiarity between us even though we always kept things age-appropriate in front of them. While my wife and I are honest with our children about our nonmonogamy, we have friends who aren’t. Had we been less than honest at that moment, it’s likely that our kids would still pick up on that familiarity with our other partners and assume we were cheating on one another. *  I guess the tip would be to prioritize integrity. Sure it seems easy to think our kids aren’t picking up on intricate details of our lives. But it’s very possible that they aren’t missing a single thing even if they don’t have the context to fully process all of it.
Nothing says disaster like barefoot balance beam chicken in the rain over sharp gravel. -- ---------------------------------------------------------------- Fathers, what risks have you encouraged your daughter to take?

Today my daughter allowed insults to affect her outcome.  She let another's words determine her worth.  She forgot her strength, her right and her title.  A boy child succeeded in temporarily re-defining her. -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fathers, our first inclination is generally to initiate a scorched earth campaign on the home of any adolescent foolish enough to speak that nonsense into our daughters lives.  And I'm not going to lie, it crossed my mind today.  3 times. -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- But, hold back.  If not for the bail and the jail tattoos, hold back for her.  Invest in her.  Speak power into her.  Remind her of the girl she is and the woman she will become.  Show her how to revel in her strength and embrace her vulnerability. -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Men, today I was given the opportunity to remind my daughter how amazing she is.  I got to express my awe at the responsibility God placed with me when he entrusted me with her care.  I was able to define her value in the tragically limited vocabulary I have to express her incalculable worth. -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fathers, do this as often as possible.  The world will never know what hit it.  #purposefulfathersraisepowerfulldaughters #fathersofdaughters #fatherhood #daughters #family #raisedupright #thatgirlwillkickyourface #shesabada**

#featuredfather Ansel, 38 Married Father of Caleb  Failure is not only an option; sometimes it’s a likely outcome. * I was that kid that succeeded at everything and it became the expectation for everyone around me.  I had a pretty good childhood.  I come from a middle-class family and a loving home.  I was a smart kid that didn’t have to try hard in school to get good grades.  I was athletic and did well in most sports.  My family had enough money to give me everything I needed and many of the things I wanted.  I knew my biological father and I had a stepfather.  I always knew I was far more blessed than others. * It wasn’t until I was older that I realized I didn’t really know either of my fathers.  I was in my mid-twenties and things weren’t working out in my life the way I thought they should.  I was in a bad relationship, I didn’t know which way was up professionally, I had very little money and I really didn’t know what my next move was going to be.  I had a conversation with another friend that was experiencing similar feelings and we both concluded we needed a mentor, a roadmap, something….anything! * I was in my mid-twenties and I didn’t know how to overcome failure. * (click the Featured Father link in the bio to read the full post).
Some recent pictures of me and my baby girl. I am really grateful for the opportunity to be at home again with my daughter.  I had been a full-time worker again after over a year of being a civilian and a stay at home dad. I only worked the job for 3 months, and it was a little unfortunate that I had to quit. My body is a bit too worn out from the military, and because of injuries I sustained and surgical procedures I had done, working the civilian logistics job I had was sadly too much for me to handle.  I have been back home as a full-time dad for just over a month now. I am able to cherish these long days. Oftentimes she comes up to me with a book and we read. She comes into the kitchen while I make our meals and we play peek-a-boo around the center island, and because I'm so good at hiding,  she calls out "Dada, Dada, Daaaada". She spends a lot of time reminding me that she knows what a clock is, what a fan is, and what a light is. Her favorite word is "puppy". If you ask her "who's a Weaver?", she will point at herself. She babbles on and on, and she's getting very good at American Sign Language. She gets very excited when my phone rings and always thinks it's her mama.  Sometimes she doesn't like talking and would rather fuss about something that she doesn't like, so I'll tell her to use her words. Sometimes when she comes up to me so I can read to her, she'll sit down on my lap, I'll open the book and read one page, and then she'll grab the book out of my hands and walk away. Sometimes she doesn't want to be bothered and would rather play by herself for 30 minutes or so. Sometimes she sees me grab her sippy cup to fill at and she'll scream at me the whole time until she's got it in her hands.  We live our lives together, and it's the most amazing thing. I love watching her live her life. All the learning, laughing, playing, babbling, I just can't get enough of it.  Long post, but I never do anything like it. I hope it gives you joy!  #evangelinegrace
Do you ever just pause and watch? See how they interact with each other, with the world?  You don't have to hear them to see the intensity and creativity they bring to life.  You don't have to look hard to capture the passion they bring to the life they're living.  I love these two more than life itself.  They are my joy and my mission.  My calling.  #purposefulfathersraisepowerfulldaughters #fathersofdaughters #fatherhood #daughters #raisedupright #family #lovethem #worldchangers

So SO blessed by everyone's generosity. Also, SO OVERWHELMED. When do we use a Pack n Play versus a crib? Can I just use the Boppy for myself?

I was raised by a Nigerian Father and somehow he has channeled himself through to my own kids 😂😂😂 But on a serious note. Fathers, uplift your children and start from young. Let them know you care, that you value them, that they are great, that they are the best, that they are amazing. Our words carry not just weight but energy. Energy that they will need one day when we aren’t able to be around. It is our actions and our words that will carry them through. #nigerianfathers #blackdads #dadsanddaughters #fathersofdaughters #raisingqueens #akhilestrong

Oh it's #womancrushwednesday? Here's my crush crushing some bacon to make our baby happy 😁🥓 . . . . #terrifieddad #dadsofinstagram #dadtribe  #dadtobe #firsttimedad #pregnant #pregnancy #babyontheway #babyonboard #expecting #wereexpecting #baby #babyfever #dadlife #fatherhood #birthofadad #dadding #dadswagger #dadsquad #newdad #fathersofdaughters #fathersofinstagram #wifey #wife #bacon #womancrushwednesday
A lot has been made of the types of conversations that fathers get to (or have to) have with their daughters when it comes to how they mature and move into adulthood.  Most of the time it sounds like "man, I'm glad my wife gets to have that conversation and not me!" And if you are blessed enough to be in my situation, where my wife of nearly 14 years is intelligent, supportive and a school nurse, well-versed in the delicate matters of life, that statement can really stand on its own. - --------------------------------------------------------------- But I'm here to tell you Fathers, even if you, like me are in this enviable position, you have an obligation to not saddle both your wife and daughter solely with this burden. - --------------------------------------------------------------- My oldest started this week, yup...that.  This is something that she will carry for the vast majority of her adult life.  It will shape her choice of activities and her social schedule.  It will be painful, isolating at times, and a whispered secret to others. For the next 40ish years.  That's literally 480 months.  How would you feel if you had to look forward to something happening 480 more times, and you couldn't take it to your dad? - --------------------------------------------------------------- Dads, you can't back away from this period of her life. (See what I did there?) You can't validate her fears.  You don't have to make it weird, but you do have to let her know that you GET it. - --------------------------------------------------------------- Be her guardian.  Be her refuge.  Be her father. #purposefulfathersraisepowerfulldaughters #fathersofdaughters #fatherhood #daughters #family #raisedupright  #stormsacomin
Made some Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons for the family this evening.  These have roughly 5g of protein each at least and we made sure to have homemade Greek Quinoa bowls topped with panned cooked shrimp prior to our dessert. Thanks to @sarahsfitfood for the tasty recipe.  #dietitiansdoitbetter #baketobefit #dadbod #parenthood #protein #familydinner #fathersofdaughters #fathersofsons #dessert #deliciousness #lovedbyall
We argue. A lot. Infact, this picture was taken after a huge discussion that we had some time ago. There's a lot that goes on in our daughter-father dynamic. But it's all worth it. He's given me the life I don't deserve. He's been there always. He has worked his ass off (and still continues to) for giving us a lifestyle we may not be worthy of. He's given me everything. Yes, I complain, I argue and sometimes I insist upon things going my way. But I guess we sort it out at the end and then argue on the same things again the next week. Haha!  He cares like no one does. He loves like no one does. He's my everything. Happy Birthday Papa ❤️ Happy Birthday Grandpa. I miss you. A lot.  #grandfather #majormissing #fatherlove #birthday #bhaskorpiku #loveyou #instagram #fathers #fatherdaughter #moment #fathersofdaughters #gratitude #eternallyblessed💫

What drew me to him 21 years ago was his kind soul, his love for God, his wisdom and his authenticity.  He’s always been so real and easy to talk to. He genuinely cares for people.  Any opportunity he has he wants to be around people he loves and serve those around him.  He’s so calm (his name means “God’s peace” - so fitting). Being able to raise three daughters (and having to deal with ME raising 3 daughters) without losing his mind is proof of that. He’s our hero.  He’s not perfect but he’s our perfect.

Featured Father  Joe Married Father of 3 Tampa, Florida  My son, Alex, was born with cerebral palsy. He has always had difficulties with strength and maintaining his balance which caused him to fall a lot growing up. Every time he fell, we would come rushing to help him up and console him if he hurt himself. He wore leg braces as a kid.  Around the age of 3, Alex started showing interest in baseball. By the age of 7, he wanted to try to play teeball in the local YMCA league with the rest of his friends. I was worried. I lacked the confidence that he could do it. I knew that if I put him on a tee ball team, he would immediately become cognizant of his physical disability and possibly expose him to juvenile ridicule. I didn’t want him to become discouraged or develop low self-esteem. Despite my worries, I put him on the team. Walking was already a challenge for Alex, there was no way he could run in teeball. How would he swing a bat? What about catching and throwing a ball?  A few weeks of teeball practice passed, and Alex eventually figured out how to swing a bat, catch a ball, and throw it back. I was so proud and I let him know it. He would repeatedly fall down though. It happened so regularly, teammates and coaches would just help him up and move on. Alex and everyone around him became comfortable with his disability. (Click the Featured Father in the link in the bio to read the entire post).

I thought she'd like it, however, the tight suspension was greater than her reflux #bmw #fathersofdaughters #superstreet #america
Another successful play date!  Vacia, my nephews & I went to #free admission at Witte Museum. It’s every Tuesday at 3-8pm. She told me last week that she misses her cousins. I looked at her & felt her sorrow. I got with my sisters to set to today’s fun. Now I must keep setting time for Vacia to meet with them. I wonder how many times a month is good? ⬅️ swipe left

#featuredfather  Drew Married Father of 1 Atlanta, Georgia  I believe in patience and perspective.  These have been two of the top things that have helped me along in my parenting journey.  As the parents of a 2-year-old, my wife and I are constantly being “tested” by our daughter.  She is verbal, active and very independent for her age.  Like every other 2-year-old, she is at times unpredictable and seemingly irrational.  And while she knows a lot of words, I understand (and constantly remind myself) she is a young child and does not fully realize the impact of the things she does or how those things might prompt us to react to her.  It’s so easy to get frustrated and yell at her, especially as she seemingly repeats infractions and irritations.  It’s also easy to default to a more old-school interpretation of parenting from “how we were raised” which, most of the time, also equates to some version of yelling or being overly stern.  When I process the potential cumulative impact and importance of these moments, I’m left with a desire to be more deliberate and thoughtful in my interactions with my daughter.  In the moments when I feel myself being triggered to react, I force myself to slow down and first evaluate the reaction I see coming.  Then I question if it’s the best option or if there is a better one.  That act of slowing down is the patience.  That brief instance of processing the options for responding and evaluating and weighing the benefits of each is the perspective.  The whole thing takes just a few seconds.  In those few seconds, I’m putting into practice a mindset that I hope will ultimately make me and my daughter better people.  Anyone with kids knows how children observe and pick up the traits of their parents.  At least in the short term, they have a way of becoming what they know and see.

I think its time for some introductions.  My name is Jamison, my wife Angela and I have been married for 13 years.  We have two amazing daughters.  I'm a Christian, former youth pastor, occasional go kart racer, reformed workaholic, wannabe speed skater and true believer in the power of fathers to shape the young women that God has entrusted us with.  I started this little project with the sole purpose of bringing together Fathers of Daughters, so that we might learn from and support one another.  This year, my family and I are taking some amazingly drastic steps to change the way we interact with each other and the world around us.  We're going to redefine what intentional looks like, consume less and contribute more.  We're going to pursue our faith and challenge the conventions of success and prosperity.  We'd be honored if you came along with us on this journey.  #purposefulfathersraisepowerfulldaughters #fathersofdaughters #fatherhood #daughters #raisedupright #family #cccchanges

Fathers, are you looking for something? - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Guys, if you've spent any time at all congregating with other men, be it at the bar, on-line, in church or the gym you've likely noticed a comon theme to many discussions if they ever get deeper than who's head coach got fired. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Discontentment.  Lack of drive.  A feeling of being lost.  Overwhelmingly, men in this country are lost in the lives they are leading.  Studies abound showing men from every generation suffering from greater rates of depression, declining social skills, higher unemployment and a general loss of identity. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I guarantee that if you are disconnected and discontent with your life, your children are suffering.  If you are lost, or worse yet hiding, they feel it.  Daughters everywhere are looking for their dads.  Too many dads are not answering the call. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Men, we have to wake up!  There is literally a generation of tiny little humans watching, listening and learning from us!  I get the feeling of being lost because  I was that guy once.  Feeling worthless and hopeless, drifting through what I thought I was supposed to do.  Thankfully my wife, a woman of monumental patience and grace woke me up to the fact that my mission, my direction and my purpose in life wanted me to take them to the park.  And to the pool.  And read them a bedtime story. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fathers, if you are feeling lost, I dare you to look into your daughters eyes and not find your purpose. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They are waiting.

I keep hoping that some one is going to come along and start taking responsibility for my mistakes.  Its been 43 years. - ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No one's shown up yet... Lets face it, I'm it.  No one else is responsible for me or the actions I take.  No one else is responsible for the words I speak, the shade I throw, the fits I pitch or the promises I break. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Unfortunately that doesn't mean that the consequences end with me.  For some time now I've been intentional about being the father that I should be every single moment.  But that means I miss the mark.  Often.  And when I do, I always have an audience of little faces watching.  Disaster recovery should be a profession of mine for as many times as I've had to pull it together in front of them.  Collect what I can, carry it back to the point where it all went wrong and look for the other path.  The one I should have taken the first time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Guys, we're going to blow it.  If we're honest with ourselves there are weeks where we stumble tragically from one train wreck to another barely cognizant of the trail of destruction we leave in our wake.  We all fall into it and there is really only one saving grace to these valleys. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Show your daughters what true grace and humility looks like.  Equip them for the future failures that will surely come their way.  Teach them to stand back up, pause, breathe, collect their things and take a bow because the world will surely be watching them also.  And when they carry on with a  look of quiet determination they'll say, that's what Dad would have done.  #purposefulfathersraisepowerfulldaughters #fathersofdaughters #fatherhood #daughters #raisedupright
