Thank you, Dad: 10 expressions of gratitude for fathers

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 8 2013 9:56 p.m. MST

With the research linking a variety of negative outcomes to the rise in dead beat dads, absentee fathers, and the like, and in the face of a media that seems obsessed with presenting a caricature of fathers as dimwitted goofballs always deferring to their infinitely more competent wives, I’d like to recognize the truly exceptional fathers of the world and be a voice for putting Dad back on his pedestal — right next to Mom.

I’d like to offer a little love to the dads out there who make our jobs a little (or a whole lot) easier. So with my own husband in mind, I extend this top 10 list of thanks to all the dads who are doing it right. You are more than competent, you are incomparable and irreplaceable.
