I love Father’s day!  That’s probably because I had wonderful men in my life as I was growing up.  I loved spending time with my grandpas and my dad.  I would do anything to spend time with them.  “Dig” a ditch? I gave it my all!  Chopping wood?  I would carry the chopped wood to the pile.  Anything and everything to spend time with them.

Now that I’m married to a dad I think I love it even more!  Watching my husband cuddle with my kids when they are sick, spend his evenings playing puzzles and blocks, and every evening reading them books before bed is heartwarming.  My daughter has the best daddy, I’m confident!  She would agree too!

Daddy and Daughter Reading


I took this snapshot this evening while they were watching YouTube videos of their latest musical obsession, Justin Roberts.  Aren’t they sweet together?

I appreciate my husband being involved in their lives.  I know appreciate really isn’t the word I’m looking for but I am …immensely grateful for him.  He knows what they like, dislike, and how their day went.  It’s such a blast sharing parenthood with him.  For instance, today I got a laugh when my daughter told me the lunch that I prepared, pizza sauce and cheese on bread, was “pretend pizza.”  To you that probably isn’t funny but to us it is because we’ve been watching her learn what it means to pretend this week.  It’s fun knowing someone else cares about the little details of their lives like I do.

Dove Men+Care is committed to portraying how real men and dads care for their children New Dove Men+Care research reveals a disconnect between the media’s representation of father’s roles and how fathers actually see themselves:

  • – Three quarters of dads say they are responsible for their child’s emotional well-being, while only 20% of dads see this role reflected in the media
  • – Only 13% of dads believe the media portrays fathers as responsible for childcare
  • – 3 out of 5 dads say the media portrays them negatively (61%!)

Those are some pretty sad statistics, right?

The Dove Men+Care has created a ‘Calls For Dad’ film that spotlights the expanding and often unrecognized ways fathers care for their children:

  • – Nearly all dads (97%) say they are involved in their child(ren)’s life and 7 in 10 see themselves as highly involved
  • – An overwhelming majority of dads (94%) prioritize their families over their careers
  • – Dove Men+Care understands that dads’ role as caregiver is often unrecognized and is sharing real, authentic moments of care just in time for Father’s Day
  • – Features real dads and their kids

I think Dove Men+Care did a phenomenal job in creating this video.  You can view it below.

Dove Men+Care celebrates men who know that more care is better.  They have a whole line created JUST for men!  Surely, ya’ll knew that though, right?  It’s pretty great…or so I’m told!

  1. Being a dad is so important to me! I read that if a father doesn’t show his daughter just how much he loves her then she’ll never really believe another man (her future husband) can really love her. It is so important to me to cherish my girls and tell them every day how much I love them! Cool Dove products for men, I’ll have to put them on my wives grocery list.

  2. Julie Wood says

    My Dad has always been there for me. He is very loyal, and has helped me out so many times over the years! His love has brought me through hard times!

  3. Of course he teaches them, helps them with things but that’s normal. My husband not only plays games with them but he does silly stuff like hold the jump rope, sidewalk chalk, etc. He’s a great dad!
