    Whether you're expecting your first child or your kids are grown and on their own, being a dad is a new experience. When my wife was pregnant, we decided to have a homebirth.

    Could this guy look more like a monkey if he tried, as for his being talented, the only thing talented about him is the fact that he can bump and grind, anything past that is painful to watch.
