    I know mine will be great. He acts like a big kid, but I know he’s responsible and a natural caretaker (I see this with the pets and his family). When he starts making childish jokes or gets overly excited about silly stuff, I tell him this is why I know he’ll make a good daddy. That usually quiets him. 🙂

    Oh, I definitely think so.  We’re two goofs who enjoy making faces at little kids we see when we’re out and about until they start smiling/cracking up.  But we’re nowhere near ready to be parents yet!

    He’ll be awesome but I feel like he’ll budge on extra dessert and later bedtimes tho–he’s such a softie sometimes, even with our dogs!

    Absolutely will my FI make a great dad.  He has this way with kids and animals.  He hasn’t met one that doesn’t like him.  I mean he can make a kid come to him, that the parents say, oh so and so is shy they don’t go to people they don’t know, and the next thing you know, he is holding them and playing with them!  So I know that our kids will be blessed to have a dad like him!!!

    Mine fell into the other I’ll explain b/c

    YES he’s already a great dad!  And he’s also going to be the most incredible stepdad to my son!  He spends so much time with him and is loving, caring, and is now going to even be the assistant scout master for his webelos troop!

    I heart T!

    I think he’ll be great. He’s great with dogs (don’t laugh! ha!), the less fortunate, and his nephew. He’s very much like me in that he’s not an overly gushy kind of person, but I do see a side of him that makes me realize we’ll all be just fine together =].

    He has a lot more confidence in this kid business than I do! I’m counting on him =P

    The way my FI takes care of our pets and two younger sisters, I know he’ll be a great dad. He’ll probably be the “fun” parent, too!

    I think my fiance would be great, but we’re not sure we want children. We can still be a good aunt and uncle to any children my siblings might have in the future.

    Absolutely! I can see it in the way he treats himself, other people, and his family. I love seeing him hang out with my 11yo brother. My dad simply hasn’t been able to support us in the way he should because of his condition, so seeing my SO be such a good male influence is wonderful!!

    Great topic!  It was one of the criteria I used to evaluate the men that I was dating.  From the moment that I met my partner, I knew that he would make an exceptional parent.  He is phenomenal in his interactions with children, which is important to me as a pediatrician.

    I think sometimes he feels like he’s not ready for that role, but I also think he acknowledges that no one ever feels totally ready to become a parent 🙂
