I don't usually post on the weekend so I'm going to post this kinda eary because I wanted to take a moment to give a shout out to all the Daddies out there:
who decided to be a father to they child, because you couldn't imagine your kids growing up fatherless like you did
Who knows that paying child support is only the most basic aspect of being a dad
Who put dress up barbies and have tea time at little tables
Who spend hours teaching they kid how to ride a bike and never lose patience
Who threaten to "Beat your butt" Way more than they actually do it
Who Actually feel bad for having to spank their kid.
Who deal with crazy ass baby momma's because they know it's best for the child
Who take care of kids who are not theirs because they know kids need a male influence
Who look for monsters in dark places
Who give their children baths and get them ready for school
Who go to baseball games and dance rehearsals
Who proudly break out the video camera to film kids doing silly things.
Who spend hours at the playground, going down slides and pretending to be a monster so kids can scream and run. (I know this sounds creepy but kids really do like it)
Who know simply holding a child's hand can give the courage
Who spend 30 minutes blowing up an inflatable pool just so the kid and splash in the water
Who Cook real breakfasts on the weekend
Who Sneak treats for the kids because hell there kids and they deserve to have fun
Who watch cartoons
Who teach their children sports
Who wear that "#1 dad" shirt with pride
Who know spending time with your child involves more making that car ride to drop them off at grandma's house
Who miss the NBA finals or NFL Playoffs because your stuck at chuck E cheese.
Who spend late night in the emergency room for fevers and such.
Who know that how they treat women will be reflected in how their boys treat women and how their daughters are treated.
Who smile and wave when every women tries give advice on how to raise your children.
And a special shout out to a couple blog land people:
1st One Man for stepping to the plate and looking after his nephew. I was basically raised by my dad's brothers so I know first hand how important an uncles influence can be. Sometimes Uncles can be just as vital as dads, especially if their dad is not around or just not a very good role model.
2nd Sha-Boogie's dude S.nappy. Any dude who takes care of a kid who is not his and that child has a crazy momma gets props from me. I barley want to deal with my baby momma and i know my kid is mine. I couldn't imagine if she wasn't, honestly I'd probably fade out of the picture and go about my life. So he gets kudos from me.
And most importantly any father who keeps his child from doing this kind of fuckery at least deserves an ugly tie on fathers day.
