Hot Dads Hanging Out


When Hot Dads invited me to join the fray, I thought back to the last time I hung out with a bunch of dads, hot or not. It was, um…er… sheesh, I honestly can’t remember. What’s up with that?

I’m a single dad with 50 50 child custody, and let me tell you, most men and women in my neck of the woods don’t understand why I would sacrifice career and social life to take care of my kids. Don’t get me wrong, I know a lot of dads who are involved in their kids lives. But in general, the ones I know aren’t involved in the day-to-day running of their household. And they don’t do any of the social planning. Whenever I ask my married buddies if they can meet for dinner or a beer, they first have to check with the keeper of their social calendar – their wives.

A while back, I wrote a piece on Silicon Valley Moms Blog where I called all matchmakers for help setting me up with a woman. I told about a dinner party where all the dads were outdoors talking sports and business, and I was in the kitchen with the moms talking about books and women. Comments on that post ranged from calling me unmanly to gay. (My follow-up post asking if men who read and cook are sexy or unmanly garnered a lot of support, and was one of my blog’s most commented posts ever. Gotta love my Dad’s House readers! Most of whom are women, btw…)

My point is that I don’t get a lot of dad time. Blogging here will be good!

So, if the bloggers from Hot Dads met in real life, what would it be like?

Whatever it’s like here, I think it's cool being called a Hot Dad.

Hopefully, not from being sunburned.

Welcome! Don't be alarmed if you start getting a lot of naked chick pics, it seems to come with the territory!!

Dad's House izzindahouse!

Maybe it will be drinking beer in a sauna with a grill off to the side and us talking up the women in towels...

What? It could happen :)

I like hanging out here with all you Hot Dad's. You're all incredibly funny and real, which holds the appeal for me. As for what you'd all do if you all met up? I'd have to go with the bbq and steaks, after all you are all guys - fire and meat, it just screams male.

It's Just Me said...

I would personally go for beers around the campfire... probably an "up north" thing though.

Welcome

you should sacrifice things to love your children. that is the way it should be. you should be proud you are not a dead beat.

my daughters dad would do anything to get out of taking her weekends. it completely blows my mind.

Cameron said...

Welcome aboard!!! To clear up exactly what we do here....we sit around and have virtual burping and farting contests, then we decide which female bloggers we would 'do'....duh, all of em, right?

Amy B said...

Welcome to Hot Dads. I think men who loved and want their kids are sexy.
Oh and I am lurking here daily ..
So you did not see me here..
Sssshhhhh. Deal?

Sandi said...

I think it's definitely cool being labeled a hot dad. I have on occasion been labeled a hot mom. Can't say I mind it. This whole hot dad staying home with the kids thing reminds me of a movie....Michael Keaton in Mr. Mom. I get some hilarious mental images.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Sounds like you are an awesome dad to me! And not unmanly or gay by any means!

Welcome to Hot Dads! Nice to have you!

Mommy2JL said...

For the record, my boyfriend loves to read and loves to cook -- which I was a little shocked to find out about him *shrugs* but I have to tell you, those are probably two of the sexiest things about him!

nice @ http://blog.singlemominthecity.ca

Beers around the campfire, no contest.

Welcome!

Funny in my mind said...

Hmmm, a hot dad get together? A bunch of guys standing around a grill with a beer in one hand and a diaper bag/Polly Pocket toy/stuffed animal in the other while various children run around underfoot screaming.

MindyMom said...

I've always known you were a hot dad, David. Thanks for stearing me here. I will have to add this blog to my daily reads and will be interested to see all the different male perspectives all in one blog!

BedsideTalesMan said...

Great post David!!!

I say we all get together, go camping and fishing and have a bunch of hot chicks serving us cold beers on command.

I love being home with the kids..yes I complain about the dinners, lunches, carpools, playdates, etc...but I would be miserable if I could not do those things!

Welcome Aboard!!

Daddy Geek Boy said...

From one noob to the next, welcome fellow Hot Dad.

Why can't we combine the first one with the third one and drink beer while cooking steaks?

And what's this about pictures of naked women?

dadshouse said...

You guys are funny. If we grill in a sauna, we'd need some serious BBQ smoke so the eucalyptus doesn't make our big-ass steaks taste funky. (No offense to anyone who uses eucalyptus beef rub)

I just might like reading DadsHouse here more than on SVM....

qtmama said...

This must be that place! I've been LOOKING for this place! It's just like the place us single mama's have - we sit around in our underwear having tickle wars and pillow fights!


Dude, I love it here!

katherine. said...

ya know...it is just really too bad dadshouse said we had to keep our panties on....

T said...

*walks in, inhales deeply*

Hmmm... I love the smell of testosterone in the morning.

And evening.

And afternoon.

And over and over again as much as possible!

Yay! Thanks for bringin' in the good tantric, bbq, cocktail makin', beer drinkin' goods, DH!

Now, where's my martini?

Irish Gumbo said...

You know, Hot Dads Hanging Out could also mean an underwear malfunction, or equipment dislocation, knowwhuttamean? Happens to me all the time, just sayin'...

The Exception said...

David, you are hot and sexy - just look at the great things you write and read and cook... I can't wait to read what these other hot dads have to say!!

Hubman said...

Welcome aboard, fellow hot dad!

Me, I'm up for steaks on the grill and a beer in my hand.

Brandy said...

Welcome!

For the record I think it's sexy as hell to have a man cook for me. And if you clean up after, well fugetaboutit! I'd be all over that shit.

I mean if I weren't already married of course.

I mean happily married.

Abigail said...

OOOhhh! Insider information about where the hot dads hang out! Saunas and BBQs. I have been looking in all the wrong places! And hot dads who talk books and cook? I'm swooning!

Janet said...

Hot Dads rock! I'm glad they've brought you over here DH! :)

Kat Wilder said...

I think Cameron called it the way a lot of women think what happens when a bunch of guys get together — not that there's anything wrong with that ...
