Bums the Word, Dad!

You’ve come a long way, baby.

And when I say “baby” – I mean dad.


Pops, you’ve come a long, long way.

  • You’ve shattered stereotypes that portray you as a deer in headlights when it comes to domestic issues;
  • You’ve proved your capabilities as a strong and nurturing caregiver. Heck, in many homes you are the primary caregiver;
  • You’ve made decisions with your spouses and partners about careers and child-rearing based on what’s right for your own family;
  • You’ve shown that masculinity isn’t found in the gym – but in being a loving, caring and available father.

And based on what I recently witnessed at the Dad 2 Summit in New Orleans, you’ve become rather comfortable showing off your softer side.

The Dad 2 Summit is an annual conference that facilitates conversations with dad bloggers and brands. And at this year’s event, Cottonelle – the folks behind (sorry, couldn’t resist!) toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths – had dads lining up for a personalized portrait of their bums.

The mastermind behind the works of art was famed “Butt Sketcher” – Krandel Lee Newton who’s made a global name for himself asking thousands and thousands of folks to say cheese with their cheeks.

And the men at the Dad 2 Summit became not only his newest subjects – but some of his biggest fans. That included Andy’s arse. Tom’s tush. Charlie’s caboose. Brent’s booty. Kevin’s keister. And over a hundred more.

I’ve never complimented so many men on their matako. But I liked what I saw.

And I like where this wonderful world of dadhood is heading.

Inside. Outside. Front side.

And back.
