I have "met" a lot of awesome people in the past year over the internet. Moms, dads, grandparents; sometimes I am amazed at just how many cool people live in this world. Some are awesome writers, others amazing photographers and then there is this guy, who just so happens to be one of the most talented people that I have come across online. James is a school teacher who lives somewhere in the remote wilderness of Canada, isn't Canada all a remote wilderness? Not only is he a fabulous writer and a great dad, but then he goes and does something like this:
I am going to use this as my anthem from now on, don't we all have an anthem? I think this song epitomizes a lot of us nowadays, slowly we are losing our stereotypes as the bumbling fool when it comes to parenting. Songs like this and more importantly dads like James are helping people realize that dads are parents too. No longer are we sitting idle and letting mom do all the work, we are making parenting a shared job.
For more from James you should check out his blog Edudad where he discusses everything from parenting to teaching and throws in a lot of humorous stories from his kids. He is THE 21st Century Dad.
