I am creating a fathers day gift for my fiance and want to make him a special cd for when he is out of town to listen to to remind him of our son or to make him smile and think of the great times. Any ideas of good ones to put on it? he listens to mostly country music and rock so no rap or pop songs please :)

I know this one is an odd suggestion. But hear me out! Go to click on menu and go to music, then children's songbook. Search daddy or "I'm so glad when daddy comes home." Here's the lyrics:

I'm so glad when daddy comes home
glad as I can be,
clap my hands and shout for joy
and get up on his knee
put my arms around his neck
hug him tight like this
pat his cheek and give him what?
a great big kiss!

Yes, it's cheesy, but one that your son can learn and sing to him with actions! I believe you can download an mp3 of it.

oh Gosh...there are a MILLION more! I tried to limit this to songs about boys...mostly country and a little rock. It's easy to find songs about parenting in country music.

I found tons of ballads...pop music..Celine Dion...stuff like that, I didn't bother listing, because anyone who loves country AND probably not going to appreciate a transition from Staind right into Celine Dion. "THE" Divas of our music world have a MILLION songs about being a mother!
