I’m Not Cool, I’m Dad

by Bryan Alkire
dads

I’m not cool. There is nothing I can do about it. I used to be cool. I was “with it.” When I went out, people wanted to talk to me. I used to be invited to things. My clothing was trendy and I knew what was going on in the world. But then things changed. I […]

The Only Dad.

by Bryan Alkire

Sometimes I forget. Sometimes I get too comfortable and accustomed to my usual play groups. Sometimes it just slips my mind that I am the only dad. My daughters and I tend to frequent the same classes and parks. We are known there. It isn’t a big deal that I am the only dad. But when we go […]

by Chris Routly

More and more fathers today say they would jump at the chance to be a stay-at-home dad, even just for a little while. In my own experience, many working fathers express to me that it’s something they would do if it made sense for their family. Others say they would do love to do it in […]

Snappy Answers to Stupid At-Home Dad Questions

by Kevin McKeever

Much to my mother’s chagrin, I owe a great deal of my sarcastic sense of humor to my childhood overindulgence in the usual gang of idiots at Mad Magazine. Where would I have been without Al Jaffee’s back page fold-in, Mort Drucker’s movie and TV satires, Sergio Aragones’ margin gags, Don Martin’s “Adventures of Captain Klutz” and the rest? Probably on […]

by Chris Bernholdt

Stay at Home Dads like myself are sick of being called babysitters. We are tired of the stink eyes at the park. We are frustrated with this belief that a man can’t be affectionate towards his kids. We are fed up with people who think dads who stay at home are babysitters and not primary […]

I often hear, “so it’s daddy’s day! How sweet,” or “it looks like you have a few […]
