Dads, grandpas, stepdads, uncles, dog dads – if you're a dad-figure, today we celebrate you. And share the dad-isms and life advice that make our favorite guys so special.
Megan's Dad Marty
Best advice: "'B Positive!' I always thought this was so special as it's so simple, but even more relevant to him as it's also his blood type and became one of his trademark phrases. It was even on his custom Military Challenge Coins."
His most iconic dad-ism: "Big napper, this guy! No matter where we are...vacation, home, out to eat...gotta fit in that mid-afternoon nap!"
Fashion advice: "Wear Toad&Co whenever possible!"
Steve's Dad Kevin
His high school yearbook quote and best advice to this day: “Live life as an individual and not as a group.”
Chelsea's Dad Bill
Best advice: "Trust yourself and try your best!"
Most iconic dad-ism: "'Dynamite!' Whenever I share good news or something exciting with my dad, he always responds with 'dynamite!'"
Fashion advice: "Not sure he's ever given me fashion advice, but you will catch me wearing my favorite vintage denim jacket and ray-ban aviators, stolen from his closet, almost daily!"
Sam's Dad Dave
Best advice: "Max out your 401K!"
Favorite dad joke: "Two muffins are sitting in the oven... The first muffin turns to the second muffin and says, 'oh gee, sure is hot in here.' The second muffin turns to the first and says, 'holy s***, a talking muffin.'"
Dad-ism: "Measure twice, cut once."
Fashion advice: "'I'm color blind. Do these things go together?' But really, wear comfortable clothing that protects you from the sun."
Christina's Dad Mark
Daily dose of good doing: "He picks up trash wherever he goes – even brings a trash bag with him when he hikes. It's those little things that make a difference!"
Most iconic dad-ism: "He's got a nickname for everyone. At the very least, you're getting '-inator,' '-orama,' or '-ster' added to the end of your name when he references you."
Fashion advice: "'Just like it's always a good time for a margarita, it's always a good time for a pair of shorts.' Truly, it doesn't matter the temp – you'll almost always find him wearing shorts. Big fan of the Boundless Pull-On."
Tessa's Dad Ronald
Best advice: "F* them if they can't take a joke."
Favorite dad joke: "There was a big Moron and a little Moron on a ladder. The big one fell off but the little one didn’t. Why? Because he was a Little-More-On!"
Most iconic dad-ism: "Showing up at the airport 5 hours early, 'cause you can never be too careful!"
Sarah and Kelly's Dad Nick
Best advice: "Persistence and hard work always pays off."
Most iconic dad-ism: "Catching flies on the beach (aka nap time)."
Fashion advice: "Nothing wrong with sticking what you know (he's a man of consistency)."
