Alright gang, summer is readily upon us and with that freedom comes the impending boredom! Stave off the complaints and whining by participating in the Daily Dad's Summer of '77 Family Bucket List! 1977 was the summer of Star Wars Episode IV and Saturday Night Fever, so naturally it's the inspiration for this year's summer to do list! This Family B...

My little valentines! 

Alright Dads, this is one of those weeks where you are totally in jeopardy for having a "Oh crap!" moment if you don't do it well! As a threshold matter, DO NOT FORGET YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER ON LOVE DAY! Yes, you will be in the dog house. Yes, you will be wrong. Yes, you will have to buy lots and lots of flowers to make up for...

There is a little known secret to success for travel with young kids: don’t do it. Don’t go anywhere. Just stay where it’s safe, where things have a place, and where routines thrive! DON’T EVER LEAVE THE HOUSE!!!

Ok now that I have that out there, let me say that going places with your kids is actually amazing. Trips with dad are easily the most che...

How can I start a Father's Day post without first pointing out what an amazing dad I've got! Everyone loves and respects this man because he is not only incredibly bright and charismatic, but because he is genuinely kind and wonderfully wise. I remember each Christmas getting to spend a Saturday with him going downtown and shopping for a new set of...

First off, I can't in good conscious write a blog post about Mother's day without wishing my mom and the moms in my life a very happy Mother's Day! My mom is an absolute hero of mine who is as generous and compassionate as she is fun and witty! All who know her love her; and for good reason. So happy happy Mother's Day Momma!

Every night when I go to bed I think about the food I'll get to eat the next day. Sometimes I get so excited that I won't fall asleep for an hour or two. Sometimes I sneak a peek into the fridge or pantry to see the food for myself just one last time before heading off to dreamland. If I'm ever tricked into hiking, I will talk the whole way up and...

Okay listen dudes (and dudettes), I'm no Martha Stewart. I could go into a long list of examples demonstrating how un-Martha I am, but I have a tiny bit of dignity left so I'll just leave it at that. What I have learned to do though is mastering the maximum impact with minimum effort. This isn't because I don't care to put in effort, nor is it beca...

Involved dads have probably the largest affect on a child's education. Don't believe me, consider some of these statistics from Fatherhood.org!

  • Preschoolers with actively involved fathers have stronger verbal skills.

Ho ho ho how are you doing with getting that perfect for the dad in your life? Let's be real, getting the dad in your life the perfect gift is a daunting task. It's like asking Cindy Lou Who to save Christmas from the Grinch without her braided pigtails or being able to sing "Where Are you Christmas"! So I got to work and spent WAY too much time on...

what's the daily dad

At the end of the day, being a dad is one of the most important roles a man can have. Unless you're cast in the new Star Wars, that's a pretty important role too.


The Daily Dad focuses on celebrating fatherhood in all its beautiful forms: single dads, married dads, widowed dads, gay dads, new dads, and granddads all the while challenging stereotypes in our quest to be our very best for the ones who matter most!
