Gone are the days where nuclear families were built of 2.5 kids, a white picket fence and a dog. Days where dads brought home the bacon to apron clad wives offering up freshly baked pies. Nauseated yet? Yeah me to. Let me paint a new picture for you. Four slightly unconventional dads running the show. Diapers? Check. Double Stroller? Double Check. Dad Support Group? I present to you Modern Dads.
Modern Dads features four stay-at-home dads who may be a little unconventional, but they get the job done. Banding together, their “guys club” is a tribe of suburban, child-rearing dudes who are just trying to do their thing…with a kid (or four) on their hip. A good day at the office for them is just keeping their kids—and their manhood—alive.
Think of all the outrageously hilarious parenting movies to recently hit the box office, give them a reality check and you have Modern Dads. While recently watching a screening from the comfort of my home I couldn’t help but exclaim things like “Oh My Gosh. That’s My Husband….Those are my kids!” They weren’t mine but it felt like De Ja Vu.
So who are these slightly unconventional, hilarious dads?
Nate: The New Dad
He’s 37 years old and a first time dad. He gets a little emotional.
Stone: The Single Dad
He’s 41 and working the single dad scene but six year old Danica is the most important girl in his life. “Raising a 6 year old is a lot like dating. The Puppy Dog eyes, mixed messages and I pay for EVERYTHING!”
Sean: The Stay At Home Stepdad
He’s the dad without a filter. But for him it isn’t about genetics, its about being there.
Rick: The Veteran
As a stay at home dad to four kids NOTHING can shock him. Not even the occasional baby in the dishwasher. According to his wife he loves his kids more than anything else…except maybe his bathroom time.
You’re going to love these guys. They’re hilarious, they screw up, they lack a filter, and occasionally you’re going to wonder how the house is still standing at the end of the day – but hey if you’re a parent you’ve been there right?
