I just found out that I'm going to be a dad. I'm kind of freaked out! What should I do? -- Don the Daddy-to-be

You've come to the right place, my friend. While I have no actual wisdom to impart, I can assure you that I know what you're feeling. My best advice is to find at least one (relatively new) father who knows what you're going through. I had plenty of oblivious (and borderline negligent) fathers around me, which wasn't helpful at all. If you don't find anyone soon, hop on Twitter and start using the hashtag #dudetodad or Facebook and join the www.Facebook.com/dudetodad group. It's amazing how many fathers are using social media tools to help them make the transition from an average dude to a great dad. Final note: Please ignore all baby manuals or guides except: "Be Prepared - A Practical Handbook for New Dads" and "ABCs for Expectant Dads." The rest will only marginalize you and make you feel like your kid is a slouch. No good. Oh, and, Good Luck! -- Hugh
