The Dads

We are the the ones in charge…
When mum pops out,
We are the ones on the couch,
We are the ones at the grill,
We are the ones that drank all the beer,
… And We ate all the pies.

Somebody on the Internet is wrong.

Doodie Calls! --comic from

I started the 2FatDads site with Steph almost 5 years ago and before that we probably wasted a couple weeks wages contemplating the idea of doing something cool on the web. It’s come a long way from being a funny bobble headed homepage in jest then eventually a cool slide show in iWeb. I graduated the site from self hosted Blogger to self hosted WordPress last year as I transitioned from ASP 3.0 (Classic) to PHP/MySQL (LAMP 4 us Geeks). We lost some Dads along the way, and although this saddened me, it also made me re-think the direction of the site a few times. The one thing we all have in common apart from having kids (all boys BTW) under the age of 2, is that we all get a little annoyed when someone on the Internet is wrong.

Now in it’s sixth regeneration, (only 7 more to go), we, the [TWO Fat Dads], have been lucky enough to enlist a few good [TOO Fat Dads]. Whether through bribery, cold Canadian beer, or the promise of more diapers along their gadget, tech and geek quests, we couldn’t be happier to share their journey. It’s the one thing that unites us all and keeps us from going insane at two in the morning.
