Tops in Pops: The Best Daddy Blog Posts of July

Tops in Pops: The Best Daddy Blog Posts of July 2008
 

It’s time for another installment of Tops in Pops! I am proud to present some of the very best daddy blog posts out there. Every month, this ongoing blog carnival will spotlight extraordinary dads — finding out what’s on their minds, and in their hearts. I hope you enjoy this month’s selection, and I look forward to your comments.

And now, the best of July…

EDITOR’S PICK:
Dad of Divas presents
10 Things To Think About Before Becoming a Dad posted at META-DAD. This post has the capability to change your life, and the lives of your family. Simply put, it contains 10 “nuggets of wisdom” that may make your life 10X better. Read it, print it out, refer to it often.

Joe Chiappetta presents Cartoon Diary of Silly Daddy: How to Balance Being a Parent with Being an Artist posted at Cartoon Diary of Silly Daddy. This daddy blog article lays out a practical and funny outline of how to live life and be a great father too.

Tony Chen presents Kids on a Plane | Savvy Daddy posted at Savvy Daddy. Here’s a funny story about a dad and his baby on a long plane ride. I fondly refer to it as “the perils of traveling with small children, and the life lesson(s) that go along with it.”

Reservoir Dad presents The Invisible Man posted at Reservoir Dad. Some dads feel invisible. Others are looked at like second-rate parents. This post details some of the prejudices dads face – not because they’re bad dads, but simply because they’re men.

babbo’s picks (that’s me):
My 5 Biggest Fears Being A Dad | BUILDING CAMELOT posted at BUILDING CAMELOT.
An honest reflection on the issues of fear and loss. Two things I believe we all think about (and feel), but seldom speak about.

Manly Monday #9 – Fathers as Dream Makers posted at Dad of Divas.
This post examines dad’s role in helping our kids define their dreams, and offering support so they may attain them.

Pampers vs. Huggies posted at Harrowed Parent.
An amusing, albeit messy look at why one dad despises Huggies diapers.

Huggies Children’s Products: Shape Matters, Dads Don’t posted at Daddy Brain.
Inspired by Harrowed Parent, I’d like to share my own post about the Huggies brand. Specifically how they excluded dads in a recent bath soap ad campaign.

Kids Do the Darndest Things posted at Clif’s Notes.
This 1-minute video is just too cute to pass up.

That’s it for this month. If you’ve read an awesome daddy blog post, or written one yourself, here’s your chance to shine (or help a fellow daddy blogger shine) by submitting a post you feel is “Tops in Pops,” for next month’s blog carnival. As long as the nominated post is written by a daddy blogger, it’s accepted for consideration.

Submit using this carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
