Oh cool, I like contests. I am going to ask my daughter tonight what she would say. On both questions, lol.

Do we just simply post the answers right here in this thread, or send it to you?

Ohh... I'm not sure that was the right thing to say in this thread. You may have just disqualified yourself

Congrats and best wishes on the upcoming arrival!! If I can offer some unsolicted advice, don't be in a rush to have him / her talk. They learn quick , then their vocabulary is reduced to "no" and "how come" LOL

Congrats, Paul! Fatherhood is a whole new world. My entry:

Years Being a Dad: 4

How Many Munchkins: 1 daughter, the light of my life.

Why I Am A Good Dad: I listen to what she has to say, watch TV and play games with her, and encourage her independant thinking, even if it means we have a difference of opinion.

Why Sometimes I Am Not Such a Good Dad: I've taught her how to sing "My Sharona", which she is thrilled to do at all family gatherings. I have utterly corrupted her by making her a sports fan.
