Time to Revolutionize… Supersizing Fatherhood

Ok Dads, in thinking about the idea beyond Dad Revolution, we are trying to help you think about fatherhood in a different way. As many of you who have followed us in the past have found, all of us from Dad Revolution are passionate about our families and our children and we are doing what we can to share our experiences, thoughts and ideas on how you can be a Revolutionary Dad.

I was on my way to work today and I saw a billboard that I see every day, one of a HUGE Big Mac from McDonalds and it made me start to think about fatherhood. Now don’t get the wrong idea, I was not hungry and I do not spend much time even frequenting McDonalds, but instead, I was thinking about the concept of supersizing oneself.

Now how the heck do you supersize yourself? Well, when I talk about supersizing yourself, I am referring to the idea that as a father you need to be larger than life. You need to go above and beyond to be there for your children and also your wife. You cannot simply sit back and be the equivalent of a kiddy meal. Instead you need to be the X-Large Dad that your family can be proud of.

By now you may be saying, this Dad of Divas guy has fallen off his rocker (or he is really hungry). But I would retort that no, I truly believe that all of us have it within ourselves to be extraordinary in our own ways. I can think back t a father that I know that was working with his daughter on her pinewood derby car. He knew that he would not be able to be at the actual race because of work, so he did tremendous research to find out how to make the perfect car for his daughter. So hand-in-hand they worked together and low and behold, she ended up winning the pinewood derby race.

So all-in-all, I am writing today to challenge all of you to step forth on a path to supersize yourself (now don’t start over-eating…that’s not that I want). Do something extraordinary to make you stand out to your family and your kids and come back here and talk about it. Become a part of the Revolution and let us know how you are doing it!

It is time for the revolution to start! It is time for you and I to take a stand to make fatherhood mean more and to stand out. Be a hero to your family and kids and join us in being Revolutionary! We look forward to having you stand with us.

I am a dad who works in Higher Education Administration by day and by night a dad to two girls (divas). I was born in Michigan and after some moving around the Midwest due to working for several colleges and universities, I am back living and working in Michigan and loving it! I started Dad of Divas as a way to document my experiences as a father as well as talk about important parenting tips that I have run into in my time being a Dad. As most blogs have, my blog has changed some over the last 2.5 years, but I have to say that I am still enjoying what I am doing and sharing with other parents that are out there. You will notice in my posts that I definitely do not have all of the answers (that’s for sure) but I am always willing to try something new to make my job as a parent easier (if that’s possible). I am so pleased to be a part of the group of revolutionary fathers who are, as I, working each day to be better than they already are, and are doing whatever they can to help their children to be the best that they can be!
