… A Few Good Men?

I love Dads who blog.

Dads bring a different, highly entertaining and informative perspective to ways they love and parent their children.

My first “found” Dad, Mark at Holding Together the Jello, regales with snippets like We Should Get Married in a Subaru and My Son Makes a Bold Announcement.

Newsflash! Mark just announced he’s published his first book, a compilation of blog posts. Congratulations, Mark!

My second “found” Dad blogs at Stay at Home Fodder (get it?). He hasn’t blogged much recently, but says he’s ready to rev up his keyboard. These are my favorite Fodder’s posts: Her Is Going to Love Thisย and The ED Challenge.

Although my next blogger Dad at No Facilities is not primarily a “parent blogger”, Dan’s post – Weird, Happy, Proud – ย is sure to make you smile. Not many parents are blessed to experience what Dan did on this particular day.

These three men represent The Good Guys – the male parents who participate wholeheartedly in their childrens’ lives and enhance our own by sharing their families with us.

Happy Father’s Day to you all.
