What does "soo becoming a father" mean? He's absolutely, definitely the father? Or his partner is giving birth to the most enormous baby ever? :confused:

A sidecar for his motorcycle.

Been there, done that (twice). :p

Alas, now they're old enough to need their own motorcycles/cars! :eek:

My husband had gifts given to him for the baby from his work colleagues - more useful than whisky ;)

A good book for fatherhood, written by fathers for fathers. I can recommend an excellent one, only i have totally forgotten the author and title. That is what children do to you...

I think something for the kid would be useful. If it's their first you might get something like lego duplo starter packs, dads love to play that with their kids.

Ok remembered. The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year by Armit Brott. One of the best books on parenting i have read.
