All About Dad

Yesterday I had one of those “oh joy” “oh crap” moments when I looked at the calendar and realized that Father’s Day is Sunday. Didn’t we just celebrate Mother’s Day?

In celebration of Father’s Day, I’ve got a great giveaway at Savvy Housewife for The Baby Bonding Book by James di Properzio and his wife, Jennifer Margulis. Filled with gorgeous black and white photos of dads and their children, it would make a wonderful present for a new dad. Plus, you can see pictures of my favorite baby daddy, Savvy Dad, bonding with Miss C, as well as a rare photo of her in her Baby Bjorn carrier. Trust me, her thighs were so chunktastic that we could barely squeeze her into it.

I’ve also posted a few new reviews at Savvy Housewife, including one for awesome silk ties from Bird Dog Bay (you need to check out their ties, seriously) and a great beer cookbook. If your dad isn’t a tie wearer or beer drinker and you still need great ideas for Father’s Day, or really any special event, check out what I have to say about Time Magazine and National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan’s latest book, America at Home. You can order a copy of the book with your own custom cover featuring a favorite digital photo. What’s great is that you can customize it for each recipient.

    Boy, your kids look JUST like you! I wish I had some pics like that from when I was growing up.
