This is a book of moments...the moments that describe and illuminate the verbs of fatherhood. In our society, mothers mother. They care for, nurture and love their children in ways that give meaning and understanding to the verb “to mother.” When we talk about a man fathering a child, the intended meaning is usually that the man sired a child. What are the verbs that describe what happens each day for a father? The verb of being a dad is now daddin’. This book blends stories and insights of being son to a father and father to three sons, over the years of havin’, learnin’, listenin’, lovin’, playin’, fishin’, growin’, leavin’ and livin’. Those comprise the verbs and the chapters of this father’s view of living and loving the role of dad. This is, at its core, a tribute to my parents and my sons.
