There we sat, changing their outfits, brushing their "hair," with me doing my best falsetto voice, as we all got ready for the prom. My daughter, Kirsten, was giggling at me not so much for the voices, but for the fact she had put a lovely purple bow in my hair that matched Malibu Barbie's hair ribbon. We were having a blast!

The Week In Review: Finding Unfeigned Feeling on Father's Day

This week, in anticipation of Father's Day, HuffPost was full of Dad-related content of all sorts, from gift ideas (believe it or not, some dads are hoping for nose clippers) to moving accounts of losing -- and finding -- a father. What's the best way to fete a dad today? Buy him a book? Turn his old tie into an iPod cover? Any of these might work, depending on the dad, but ultimately it's the quiet celebration of an authentic child/father connection that's most important. Which means: The perfect Father's Day gift is far more likely to be the heartfelt hug, handshake, or cuddle that evolves organically with no help from Hallmark -- or even HuffPost.

From my daughter: "I spent the first 12 ½ years of my life with a dad that made me the woman I am today. Even though he's gone and I miss him every day, I know he's with me because I wouldn't be me without him.
