Join the Revolution
Here's a sweet article in the Lafayette Daily Advertiser about standing proud as an involved father. The author invites dads to join his private revolution - to be blatant and direct about their love for their families and how much they enjoy hanging around with their kids. Enough of the small-minded viewpoint that this is for sissies!

I'm right with ya, and today was a great example of that. I had a ball parenting not two but four kids while Amy was at work. Our good friends went to the hospital to deliver their third baby this morning, and Amy and I were honored to get the early morning call for help. I got to spend the day flexing my father muscles and getting myself out of little jams like lost stuffed animals and a bathtub filled with giggling soapy kids. I was happy to see Amy come home to make the adult:child ratio more favorable - but not because moms can do what dads can't. All in all, it was a great day!
