Editors note: Back in August, we introduced you
to White Dad
Problems, an online comedy show about parenting created by
three former college roommates who are now all fathers. Since our
article on the guys, we've kept in touch and invited them to join
the Chicago Parent blogging
family. Each week they'll bring you a hilarious audio blog
post so you'll want to be sure to check back with us each
Tuesday to listen. The guys have graciously included
an introduction to themselves and their families in their first
audio post, but if you want to learn a little more about how they
read our story from August. We are so glad
to have the aboard and can't wait for our readers to get to know
Welcome to the first Chicago Parent edition of White Dad
Problems. You don't have to be white or a dad to enjoy the comic
misadventures and parental flailing of these three guys.
It's Turkey Week! While the Dads prefer Thanksgiving to
holidays involving gifts, eggs, long Masses, or large holiday
bonnets - it's tougher to wrangle kids at a "table oriented
Todd will be spending Thanksgiving in the traditional South Side
Polish manner - gambling and playing the accordion.
Matt talks about his annual tradition of cramming his family's
Italian feast and his wife's African-American feast into his
belly with only 45 minutes to rest between engorgements. Dave,
having his first experience as a Dad at Thanksgiving, recounts the
worst holiday ever, when his wife was 16 months pregnant with twins
and riddled with festive holiday gestational diabetes.
