These Dads Are Doing It Right – Part 59 – Fatherhood At It’s Finest

This week’s for the Dads Doing It Right series I am looking to put the spotlight on dads who are doing some of the finest work in parenthood. These dads are sharing honest views about life and parenting. I highly suggest you check out their work. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below. 

Johnathon Briggs – Fatherhood@Forty 

Johnathon Briggs is a 40-something father who favors wingtip shoes and statement socks. He launched his blog, Fatherhood@Forty, in 2017, a year after he was invited to speak at his college reunion about “when life goes off script.” A classmate, apparently inspired by his remarks, pulled him aside and said, “If you had a blog, I would read it.” Fatherhood@Forty chronicles Johnathon’s journey through fatherhood, from date nights and dad bod issues to the ups and downs of raising a child with special needs. Johnathon and his family live in the ‘burbs of Chicago but every winter he dreams of returning to his home state of California.

Curtis Webster Jr. – Dads Married to Doctors 

Curtis is a dad to three little girls and has been married to an ER Doc for over 13 years. Life is busy, but life is good!
