Most Valuable Dad...


Aloha,



While I have no problem sharing my silly adventures (like searching Victoria's Secret for the perfect Mother's Day gift, it is cringe-worthy hard to talk about me when it comes to nice things that happen.

But, a very nice thing happened Friday, so there you go :)

I promised my wife I would share this, because it is only through her efforts that I won the October award for "Most Valuable Dad" from dadsinthegame.com.

You can read my wife's entry here and the blog, which is run by Cliff John, a husband and father of two boys, will soon take entries for November.

From Cliff:

Every day it seems we stumble upon a negative article about a Dad doing something he does or should regret. Media gravitates toward negative press and forgets to write about good content - not a news flash. Dads In The Game is dedicated to celebrating and recognizing Dads who shine as a father, a husband, a friend and a professional. Simply put - I want to hear about the good stuff.
I want to hear from other awesome dads or from their wives or kids. Let's start writing about the good dad stuff and fill ourselves with positive content! As a husband to a wonderful wife and father of two amazing little boys, nothing would make me happier or more motivated to be a fantastic dad then to hear about what other awesome dads are doing to enrich the lives of their family.

 

If you want to showcase your Dad, or know a Dad who deserves an “attaboy,” submit a picture and a small post via their Facebook message inbox or via email to dads@dadsinthegame.com.

 Thanks, Sweethie :)

I loved this! Great dads should be appreciated, so you've got my vote, too. However, based on the picture of you with those children, I think they make it easy for you to shine!

It's good to be officially back from vacation and connecting with my blogging friends again. Aloha.
