    What are some of the most memorable times you have had with your father (whether it was going to a ball game, concert, fishing, or hunting)?

    Not a story of my dad and I, but an awkward encounter. My stepson was at his dad's yesterday (as it should be), so the wife and I were doing yard work. We go to the hardware store and get our supplies. We're loading up the truck by the front door when the boy's grandparents on his dad's side come out. We get along with them just fine. The wife still cuts their hair for them and the mom is actually my friend on Facebook as well as having let my wife know when she saw a posting for a job I might be interested in.

    Anyway, my stepson's dad's mom told me Happy Father's Day yesterday. Kinda awkward, though it's cool too.

    As much as I love the little guy, I don't feel that I deserve special recognition on Father's Day, especially since his dad is still a large part of his life. Might be different if he wasn't in the picture, but, to me, Father's Day is HIS day.

    Yes Jonny, I hear you but don't forget that you are his stepfather (key word being father). I'm sure you do many things for him that qualify as parenting and also many things that qualify as being a dad. Take ownership and accept recognition. You deserve it

    I agree with FoxKat, you are a very positive father figure in his life and are important to him in ways you don't realize. My stepdad was as much or more my dad as my real dad. Not because he tried or wanted to replace my real dad but because he was a constant, because the relationship was just a bit different, because of who he was as a person. Discussions that were difficult to approach with my real dad were easier to approach/more comfortable with my step dad, for no other reason than, as a kid, it just was. I miss my step dad very much. He was a very special person in my life and, even though your step son still has an active dad in his life, you will also be very special. Happy Father's Day!
