Happy Father’s Day to all the single dads out there!

by singlemomseeking on June 13, 2008

Father’s Day used to be so darn sad for me. I’d wake up, open my eyes, close them again and wish the day away. But now that we live out here in in Cali, near my dad and step-dad, it’s not so bad.

What makes it all better are the single dad bloggers I’ve met through this site.

This post is for you, single dads, as well as the soon-to-be ones! I’ve even had the wondrous opportunity to meet a few of you in the flesh — both in NYC and the Bay Area. I’m one lucky chic.

So, here’s “Happy Father’s Day” to:

David Mott at Dad’s House, thanks for inspiring me to keep it real. And more. Here’s to future pondering about condoms, intimacy, booty calls….

Trey Ellis, congrats on the publication of your juicy, tell-all memoir, Bedtimes Stories: Adventures in the Land of Single-Fatherhood. I’m rooting for you and your new love in NYC!

Crazy Computer Dad, I know this year has been full of challenges for you. I’m continually impressed by how advocate for your son, no matter what.

Jorge Fitz-Gibbon, thanks for being a role model in creating a healthy, loving blended family!

Matt Logelin, a new single dad whom I’ve only just read about this morning at Glamour‘s Storked! (Slight warning: there’s a lot of f*ck in the post, and this guy will break you down. He just did it to me.)

Of course, Happy Father’s Day to the soon-to-be divorced dads, too:

Laid Off Dad, it was great to connect this year at Robert Rummel-Hudoson’s book launch party. I’ve reread your bold post about “falling down” many times.

P.S. I realize I’m posting this a bit before Father’s Day. I’m off to an all-women’s writing retreat this weekend. See you on Monday!

P.P.S. MSN.com posted my little piece about “Why I Love Dating Single Dads” in honor of all the single dads out there. Thanks for inspiring me!

Hey Mamas, send these guys a littl’ love, will you?
