I saw my eight month old son crawl for the first time today. I will never see my four-year-old daughter crawl. I watched as my baby boy over a series of weeks started moving.

So I wasn't surprised when, on the way to a soccer game recently, he said, "Hey, Dad! Take a look at that cool Corvette!" Shiny, sleek, cherry red and zipping past us -- I had to admit, it was eye-catching. Show More Summary
Dear Mr. Dad: I’ve got twins—one girl, one boy—and we love to wrestle together. I always thought I was treating them the same, but a few days ago, my wife told me that she’s thinks I play very differently with them—very physically with my son and much more gentle with my daughter. Show More Summary

They’re wrapped in bandages and tiny rubber socks that look like sperm catchers. “Japanese condoms!” my doctor chortled, before catching his jolly racism and semi-retracting it until my chubby thumb needed a larger size.
