I know a lot of moms use online forums to complain about the fathers of their children and their shortcomings, especially on Father’s Day. This is not one of those posts. While I, at times, get annoyed by my significant other, surely he feels the same about me and my neuroses. This post is about my favorite qualities in my husband as a father to our kids. I think these traits are universally good traits for Dads to possess. He always makes them smile. Whether it’s funny voices, actively playing or just being silly, it warms my heart when I

Last month, I put together a Mother’s Day Gift Guide. Since this year will mark my first official Father’s Day, I’ve put together a list of gifts any dad will love that fit any budget. 1.

Editor’s note: This blog post was written and intended to be published in time for Father’s Day. However, the newest addition to Jessica’s family had other plans in mind, which required some last minute edits. We’re happy to announce the arrival of another little one into the Cotton Babies family and hope you enjoy this piece, despite it’s slightly late arrival. The first baby my husband ever held was my nephew, for probably 3 minutes before handing him back to me. Fast forward 19 months, and the next baby he held was our daughter. I remember him asking me when
