I’m a centerfold! Sort of. I’m one of the many dads featured in a new book: “Dadly Dads, Parents of the 21st Century”.
It’s a first of its kind coffee table book featuring dads from around the world and it’s a companion book to one on moms coming out later this summer.
The book debuts in June and features a total of 115 dads from the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland, Netherlands, France, Argentina, Brazil and South Africa. The dads also represent a variety of family dynamics.
I’m page 58. They call me the moon walking dad because of an incident of excessive parental participation at one of the kids’ class parties which has become legendary (in elementary school circles).
In the book, I also talk about the biggest challenges of being a parent, the lessons I’ve learned from OTHER parents, and what I do best as a parent (that section is verrryyyy short). And I found ways to stick in references to Ferris Bueller and comedian Ray Romano too.
As the authors put it, the book is a chance to prove that fatherhood is alive and well all over the world in many different forms! We’re working dads. Stay at home dads. Straight dads. Gay dads. Just dads. No labels needed.
I hope you’ll check out the book or even consider buying it, as well as, the companion book on moms coming soon.
Happy Father’s Day!
