Because Nothing Is Manlier Than Being A Good Dad

November 27, 2015

Doyin Richards is a dad, husband, author, and blogger committed to celebrating great dads and evolving fatherhood. He shares photos on Instagram of what modern fatherhood really looks like. He writes:

"Millions of dads all over the world do stuff like this. We don't want awards, props, etc. because it sends the message that we're 'going above and beyond' the call of parenting duty, and we're not. Babywearing, doing hair, late-night feedings, diaper changing, being nurturing, etc. are all line items on the 'Daddy' job description."

Here's some of our favorite photos from Daddy's Doin' Work...

When my youngest was 18-months old, I tried to put her in the carrier as a nice bonding moment but she decided to use it as an opportunity to remove my eyeball from my skull. Thankfully she was unsuccessful.

He worked like that for about 2 hours so she could nap.

After being deployed overseas for a year, Daddy's happy to be home to bond with his kids and handle the easier stuff in life - like grocery shopping.

After being gone for a week on a ship, Daddy (who's in the Navy) came home exhausted. His autistic son was overjoyed and overwhelmed to have Daddy home. To help him calm down, Daddy got on the floor so they could put beads on pipe cleaners. After working non-stop for five straight days, Daddy wanted almost nothing more than to take a nap. The only thing that he wanted more than rest was to spend some quality time with his son.
