Pam ~ too funny! Yes, DH loves those dumb little stuffed animals too! The one thing that I have to say that is good about Pokemon is that they're very tame compared to Yugioh. Yugioh is much is more violent and dark. My youngest daughter likes them because her brother does. Plus, she is a tomboy to a certain extent.
I can't recall my dad ever reading us a story, helping with homework, or playing. He is a wonderful father, just so much more removed than my husband is. What I really love to see is what an example DH sets for my kids. He is so caring and selfless. We're lucky... Have a great day!
