A while back, I hosted a “Real Dad Moments” photo contest over on my Single Dad Laughing Facebook page. There were so many great photos submitted. So many beautiful moments. So many tender and awesome bits of your lives that you shared. Looking through the 800 or so photos made me so happy because it was a beautiful reminder of all the real dads out there. It was a poignant reminder that fatherhood is not defined by race, beliefs, or social status. Good and real dads come in every shape, color, size, and age.

I hope these photos make your day just a little brighter. Maybe they’ll make you appreciate the good dads in your own life a little more. I know they did that for me. Enjoy.

Oh, and do us one tiny favor? When you go back to Facebook, could you please like the post that you clicked on to get here? It'll help these "Little Daily Extra" posts tremendously so that I can keep them coming for a long time to come. THANK YOU!
