Life of Dad

I discovered a site in my research about Dads that I think you’ll like, even if you’re not a Dad. Its not a religious site but as a pastor I think its got a lot of value for the dads I know, including my two sons.

Life of Dad began in 2008 as daily updates on Tommy Riles’s sweet daughter Bab’s health.  Babs was born with a heart defect, and battled through life-saving surgery at just 3 days old.

Tommy works on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” as her audience warm-up comic. Here is his first ever post, written when Babs was just 1 day old.

Since then Life of Dad has become one of the coolest destination for dads on the web and is the blogging capital of the Daddy world.  They have over 150 awesome writers, each sharing their own unique take on parenting.

Check out the homepage here…“Life of Dad”

You wouldn’t guess it from the title but this is one of the funniest posts on the site. Enjoy and Happy Father’s Day!
