On Father’s Day He Hugs His Stepdaughter. But He Looks Over Her Shoulder and Sees The UNTHINKABLE!

Becoming a step-parent can be a mine field, as you blend into an already existing family, and learn through trial and error what works with children who aren’t yours biologically.  For a man or a woman, to marry someone who already has kids of their own, is no small thing.

To begin with, building a life with someone you love who has previously been married, has challenges as well.  Adding in the extra factor of creating a loving bond with a child who needs a dad, and being successful at it, deserves an award!

Well…if not an award, perhaps a reward?  When Dave met Kirstin Russell’s mother, he fell deeply in love; he knew how important it was to find a way into little Kirsten’s heart and provide her with the father figure she so badly needed.  He became the dream stepdad; playing Barbies, showing up for all her karate tournaments and coaching her softball team!

As devoted and loving a husband and stepdad Dave became, he did have another love that he had to give up, in order to afford to get married when he met Kirstin’s mom…his 1973 Porsche 914.  It was an old car that needed restoring, and Dave was paying for it little by little, as money allowed.

To afford the wedding he had to give up this car that he cherished and dreamt of  driving one day.  As much as it hurt, he sold it for scrap, and would always reminisce about it over the years, as Kirsten was growing up.

Thanks to her loving stepdad’s sacrifice, Kirsten who is now an adult, got to have an idyllic childhood.  She got an idea about how to show Dave how much all that he had done meant to her.  Could she find the exact 1973 Porsche 914, that he had sacrificed, to give her mom a wedding she would love?

These Dads Walk With Swag Out Of The Garage But When The Music Drops I Totally Lost It

What do you get when you combine fathers with attitude, a killer hip hop beat, and well thought out lyrics about the things that dads do daily? This awesome and hilarious song called “Dad Life” that has become an anthem for cool father’s everywhere. Do your father a favor and show him this video, it may just make his day, and possibly even make him a little cooler.

The men who produced the jam took all of the notoriously uncool aspects associated with being a dad and owned them. Their clever and witty lyrics touch upon everything from clothing styles and hanging with the kids to landscaping and grilling.

The song was done in a Weird Al-type-style of parody that draws inspiration from common hip hop tunes. The men pose with stern, unsmiling, hard looks on their faces and throw up dad signs instead of gang signs.

Instead of rolling around on the hottest custom wheels they whip minivans and ride lawnmowers. And forget about wearing designer clothes like Versace and Gucci, these men prefer the dad classic wardrobe of Dockers creased pants, St. John’s Bay polos, and gas station sunglasses.

When they rap about money and their “dozens of dollars” it is in reference to how it all goes to their families. The only thing they shoot is “vids of the kids” and when they say “clip for my piece” it is in reference to a cell phone belt holder. They also name drop Disney characters and refer to their children as an entourage.

There are so many more hilarious and well played lyrics in the song that make everyday chores and tasks sound hip and fun.  Listening to this song will make everyone appreciate how much they often do for their kids, wife, and others in the family, and for that they deserve respect.
