Because Fathers Are Important

As many of you know, my husband is on the road almost six days a week. We have an extra whole 24 hours with him this week! In honour of our glorious extra 24 hours, I had to share the video below.

Deesha over at Mamalicious tipped me to this awesome public service announcement by the AdCouncil. (Remember the folks who brought you the Native American anti-litter commercial which made you cry?) Well, this time, they bring us one that made me giggle. After I giggled, a snuggly hoarde of warm fuzzies took over my chest. I quietly smiled and then said, "Wow! That's powerful and important. Why don't I see this every half hour on the television?"

And yes, I hope noone ever catches Obama doing this with his own girls. But, like my husband, I'm am heartened that another Black man out there knows how important it is to play, to love, to nurture and to parent his children. The smallest things can change a child's life forever.

My ex is partial to tea parties.

I just watch this video over and over again...

So glad we've got a son!

But, yeah, me too. I can't seem to watch this enough!

I just blew my sound card, but I gathered from the visual what was going on. My father was the best and my best friend and I miss him a lot.

Hey Micro, good to see you here. Sorry about your sound card. Yes, the visual is stunning. With sound...over the top!

The loss of a good father is terrible. Now, almost 35 years later, my Dad still tears up about his. (I am so not looking forward to it!)
