As many of you know I am the proud father of three and the grandfather of one and all of them are girls.
As we approach fathers day let me say that it is impossible to translate into mere dollars and cents what it means to be a dad and a granddad. Just like many of you who are parents and grandparents, the blessings are too numerous and the joy too awesome to put into words. I wouldn't trade the honor for all the gold in the world. However, it is interesting to read what it takes to raise a child who was born in 2010 and i feel really sorry for the Dugars!!!!! www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/06/09/raising-child-born-in-2010-costs-more-than-200000-report-finds/
