Happy Father's Day!

This Father’s Day is unlike any that preceded it -- it’s my first as a father.

My wife and I welcomed a baby boy in August, and we’ve spent the past 10 months learning how to be parents, and celebrating the little life we’ve created. Now, Father’s Day -- a holiday I’ve long associated with ugly ties and buying my dad a cigar -- has an entirely new meaning for me.

I don’t have big plans for today, other than to spend it with my favorite people in the world -- my wife and our baby. But whether today brings you a round of golf, some sought-after gadgets or just some time relaxing on the couch, my advice for dads is to enjoy the day =- you’ve earned it!

So dads, how are you spending your Father's Day? Share your comments below.

Happy Father’s Day, all.
