@johnchow I’m the only dad here in a sea of moms! There must be some dads who take their daughter to ballet! Right?
@benrainey Park was great, so glad for these days with my girls. Now for my favorite part of Fridays… naptime.
@shitmydadsays “I wouldn’t worry about money…No, it has a lot to do with happiness, I just meant YOU shouldn’t worry, cause you’d just piss it away.”
@FamilyDads I read a definition of “dad” that made me chuckle today: A dad is a man with pictures in his wallet where his money used to be.
@milowe Found the BEST rainy day activity today: Watching videos of the kids with them. They loved seeing themselves a couple of years ago.
@dadmeetup 3.5 YO son now insists on accenting EVERY event with: Ta dah! Bravo! or Splendid! Me: I now know what it feels like to live in the circus.
