Celebrating the Sexy Dad!

Dads aren’t what they used to be. I am certain my father never changed a diaper. My husband on the other hand has been elbow deep in dirty pampers for 10 years. Before I had kids, sexy was Antonio Sabato Jr. in his Calvins (well, o.k., that’s still pretty sexy). Now too, sexy is the man who has one kid on his shoulders, a cold beer in one hand, a juice box in the other and a big smile on his face. God bless involved Dads. I would be in sorry shape without mine.

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
~ Henry Ward Beecher

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, “You’re tearing up the grass.” “We’re not raising grass,” Dad would reply. “We’re raising boys.”

Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.

My father only hit me once – but he used a Volvo.

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then, fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.
