I found this lovely list on Pinterest--it lists the 31 most awesome Dads! Obviously more awesome Dads exist out there, but this particular site touches on some super duper people. Naturally, I am partial to the Star Wars things: a walker stroller, a Millenium Falcon playpen, and father-daughter Darth Vader costumes. Besides these bright flashes of awesome, a number of these Dads support the mission of the Women's Center in some way or another. Here is the short list:
#8-The Dad who dressed as Little Red when his daughter wanted to be the wolf
#17-The Dad who lets his daughter pamper him with pedicures
#19-The Dad who wears skirts to support his dress-wearing son
#23-The Dad who built his wheelchair-bound son an ice cream seller Halloween costume
#30-The Dad who saved his son some of the stress of coming out by writing him this letter
Let's hear it for those Dads! This list really lit up a hopeful part of me. Seeing parents support and protect their children is a special thing, and it highlights how important it is to be supportive and understanding of each other in all cases. Finally, just to capitalize on the hopeful, happy nature of this post, I want to share with you a music video that strips away labels, leaving behind whole human beings.
