Welcome to the Total Daddy Takeover!

Dad StoriesWelcome to our Total Daddy Takeover series, graciously hosted by Great Father’s Day Race and Myrtle Ave. Pediatrics!

Today we feature dads across the Tampa Bay area who are going to be sharing stories about their triumphs, struggles, and joys of parenting. This series will feature a wide and wonderful range of fathers… from a single daddy, to a father of four boys, to a grandfather, and many more!

The inspiring, heartfelt tales will enlighten you with a dad’s perspective and make you laugh out loud, and might bring even a tear or two. Filled with honesty and love, they all will make you think and touch your heart. Every 45 minutes we will bring you a new piece, so get ready to meet a few of Tampa Bay’s finest fathers!

  1. I was lucky enough to meet Sheris this morning and learned a little about this blog. just after checking it out and thinking how cute it was I checked my emails and found a message Richard from AirHeads (who is a sponsor on my site) linking me with the great post he wrote “As a father I never thought I” and I LOVED it. How great to see dads jump in and “take over” and prove why they deserve a day to celebrate being a Dad!

  2. Steffany-So glad you liked the series! We were so fortunate to have such great dads willing to share their stories with us! 🙂
