The last thing anyone should think is that I'm a perfect father. As proof, I offer this:

Make him finally change out of his pajamas on a weekend?
Force him to eat a vegetable?
Eh. Another rite of passage down. Now I feel like I'm getting somewhere in this crazy job.
Beside it was only one sign. I still have one of these:
And TWO of these:

Here are a couple of Father's Day reads for you:
My fellow dads at DadCentric.com and I each wrote up one memory of our fathers and put them into a single post on Friday. It is really an amazing little collection of work, in terms of the writing and the memories themselves, that you should like.
Over at HotDads, I posted the most recent newspaper column I wrote about the plight of being an American dad these day. It's OK, but what is better is the e-mail response MY DAD sent me about it.
And watch DadCentric.com on Tuesday for a special guest post from My Love. Really. All by herself.
Happy Father's Day to all. I'm getting a beer.
