Fatherhood: The Manliest Profession

Fatherhood_cover_web_detailYou know those inspirational books on Fatherhood that touch the heart and move the soul. Yeah, this isn’t one of them. Let’s face it. Parenthood is not for wimps. Only the bravest need apply. With his characteristic wit, author Matthew Buckley shares the comic and crazy misadventures of the boldest of men: fathers. A far cry from the usual instructional fare, this book is dedicated to those men who are figuring it out one diaper at a time, one hilarious encounter with their wives at a time.

Books not your thing? Here are a few other ideas:

Pillow Ties!

From the stitching to a small pocket on the reverse side of the necktie, Pillow Ties are specially made so they can function the way they do. The actual ties are made of Microfiber/Silk blend giving the ties the look and style of silk with the durability and easy care of microfiber.
Pillow Ties will not bleed onto your clothing or wrinkle easily if packed carefully in a suitcase. And the best part, when you rest your forehead on the soft, woven fabric, you will not be left with any incriminating lines from the pew in front of you, nor will you have to lay your face in someone else’s drool an a communal airplane pillow. The inflatable piece that rests within the necktie itself is made of a durable PVC plastic with a small “plug in hole” valve at the base for easy inflation and deflation of your Pillow Tie. The inflatable piece is completely undetectable when worn and not inflated. Even in the most formal attire, people will never suspect you’re packing a personal pillow!

Batter Up! an “all-star” spatula

Easy to grasp, efficient in use, and quick to clean – Batter Up has all the bases covered. It’s 9 inches long and features a flexible silicone blade over a durable engineered-plastic core. Score one for the cook!

Between Me And You Dad: A Few Things I’ve Been Meaning To Ask

From the author: “Words are powerful…and precious…especially when they’re written by people you love. The Between Me And You journal series offers a straightforward and meaningful way to get a little closer to those people.”

Between Me And You Dad: A Few Things I’ve Been Meaning To Ask is a great way to get to know your dad with questions in categories including: When You Were A Kid, Your Youth, My Mom, What About Me,  You, Now, and Other Stuff.
