This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I wanted to highlight a few dads that are showing us how cool it is to be a dad. The fathers really enjoy their role as a father and want to share their parenting journey. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.

Alex Walsh – Dadda-Cool
By day, Alex is a mild mannered accountant. By night he is asleep until the kids wake him up anyway. Alex’s super powers include walking over LEGOs barefoot and feeling NO pain! In addition, he works full time to bring home the bacon, some of which they eat, most of which they exchange in a barter system for money so they can pay the bills. Over at this site you can see the adventures he and his family experience.
Tom Karlya – Diabetes Dad
Tom Karlya has been active in diabetes causes since his daughter, Kaitlyn, was diagnosed with type one diabetes (T1D). In addition his son, Rob was also diagnosed in March of 2009 at the age of thirteen. Tom’s world is mostly about diabetes, but that is his choice. He made that choice when Kaitlyn was diagnosed. She looked up at him in the hospital after looking at all of the tubes and wires attached and said but two words that changed his life. Those two words were: “Daddy, Fix!” That is his mantra of “Just Don’t Do Nothing” is well known in the diabetes community. To learn more about his story, check out his website.
Matt Robinson – Real Food by Dad
Food and family are the big stories on Real Food by Dad. This is where Matt shares a behind-the-scenes view of fatherhodd. He shows you what it’s really like to be raising three hungry boys, one meal at a time. Come what may (school, sports, homework), dinner together is an everyday goal. Matt keeps it easy, simple enough to please the picky eaters at the table, hearty, and just plain delicious—a food philosophy he applies to every meal of the day, every snack, every dessert.
