One of the privileges of writing a blog is that you have total control to write only flattering things about yourself if you so desire. However, when someone tags you to write a post about things that show your human side, you have no choice but to comply. I think there's some kind of law about that.
That being said - Jenny has tagged me to help represent the male side of a popular meme that's circling the planet at warp speed about things "real" moms do that show their "real" feelings toward motherhood. So, because I'm a good little soldier, here's my contribution about Real Dads...
A real dad... secretly cringes at the thought of spending a weekend at a mosquito-infested boy scout camp year after year.
A real dad... doesn't let his 14 year-old ride in cars driven by 16 year-old friends even though it makes him (the dad) extremely "unpopular."
A real dad... sometimes doesn't suggest taking his kids to out of town places on weekends (that he knows the kids would enjoy) because he's too tired and would rather just hang out around the house doing things for himself instead.
A real dad... is scared to death to let his daughter take a cross-country roadtrip with a friend and her parents on vacation.
A real dad... can sometimes be a sensible mom's worst nightmare. Especially on nights when the sensible mom isn't home and he doesn't feel like cooking - so he buys party pizzas and Doritos instead of preparing a nutritious dinner.
I won't tag anyone specifically, but I definitely encourage you other dads to play along.
