Dad Blogs: Fatherhood Friday

My wife just sent me this link that she found on DaddyFiles site who found a site called Dad Blogs. (Still following me here?)

I just joined and was intantly introduced to Fatherhood Friday!

A day full of link sharing, thought sharing, idea sharing, and a big old group hug among dads.

Here's the deal with dads. We act like we know what we're doing, we pretend like we don't need help. But all of us dads have an unspoken bond, because we all "know". 

  • We all know that we are clueless and make it up as we go. 
  • We all know that it's scary as hell trying to make it all work for the best.
  • We all know that being a dad makes you more insecure then a 14 year old girl.

So to all the dads out there on this Friday: as your child is screaming loudly or pooping his/her pants or running around like a drunk monkey, here is my eye-contact with you that gives you an embrace that we will never have and the reassuring words: 

"Dude. I know."

To the untrained eye we have it all together though. Hell, my wife even thinks I know what I'm doing with this whole fatherhood thing.

Here's to keeping up the facade and enjoying the ride!

Consider this my wide-stance, open armed, heavy pat on the back. Welcome to the Dad pages. I love that your WIFE turned you on to us!

Yeah, totally clueless. I'd never be able to raise a kid without the help of google. No wonder dads in the past didn't help as much. No internet!
