Dad Is Not The Old Dude You See Around The House Anymore

There is a movement in this country to paint dad as not the old dude you see around the house.  Being a dad myself, I didn’t realize this was happening but as I give some thought, I think it is. Apparently due to fathers across the country being more and more fed up as to how we are being portrayed on television, television is giving dad a break.

A Huggies ad earlier this year said the company put its diapers “to the toughest test imaginable: dads, alone with their babies, in one house, for five days.  The ad showed dads making some unpleasant faces and ended with a woman saying, “good luck, babe.”

Dads on television these days seem to be younger looking, more hip and more fit.  Dads even seem to have electronic skills.  Are the days of seeing a dumb old dad on television over, probably not, but things are definitely looking up for dear old dad.
