The last Monday in June just seems to require a Dude Dad feature.
Not because it’s special, just because I say.
And also because, just in the nick of time, when I was struggling to find awesome Dude Dads with an online accessible brand worth dedicating a three paragraph shout out to on pBd, it’s like the stars aligned or the gods intervened* or, um, something, and I unexpectedly went to the Type A Parent Conference and stumbled into the most clever, well thought out suite (Dude. They had MASSAGES, and chocolate cookies, and diet coke, and pixies, and butterflies!), ever to be a conference suite ever, into the faces of these two very cool humans…
(and their not pictured but seriously mom-awesome-non-dude-dad social media chick too!).
So, who are these unintentionally coordinated, dapper dads?
They are part of the awesome behind the increasingly popular family brand, Everyday Family.
You know that I only encourage you to leave this happy place to enjoy another if it is gonna be fresh so rest assured that I fully expect you to get your tail straight back here ASAP the Everyday Family site is an entertaining, engaging, and informative way to take a BRIEF break from the dumb.
The site is filled with parenting and family news, upping your kid raising awesome tips, and realistic advice today’s parents need to stay savvy and cool. So yeah, it’s pretty much just like parenting BY dummies in it’s awesome factor, while actually being informative and helpful at the same time.
And also? They do good things!
Everyday Family founder, Noah Anderson (guy on right), has an amazing story filled with intrigue and espionage. Okay, so I made the espionage part. But even without the Mission Impossible bit, the guy is truly intriguing to talk to and his life story so far is pretty remarkable. But, one of the things that stood out most in my conversations with him (aside from his street cred he gained from being able to rap a number of 90s hits start to finish), is his desire to do good things for other people.
You guys know how I love on some goodness so when he told me that not only has he spent time being awesome in a Costa Rican jungle, been to at least 20 Dave Matthews concerts, and possibly shed a tear with Lebron when the Heat won the championship last week, he’s also passionate in his desire to affect change in our world and he’s developed a brand committed to giving back.
The Everyday Family CARES brand encourage families to do good in their own communities, and the entire staff supports this effort in leading by example. They recently used their social media pull to help raise $20,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and they are working tirelessly now to partner with charitable organizations across the nation to make it easier for families to work together to give back.
Good Dude Dads, with a sweet brand who rock conferences, who appreciate the value of strong hands and midday chocolate, and have fond memories of Vanilla Ice AND Mc Hammer?
I know, right?!
Still not convinced Everyday Family is the shiznitz jeez what kind of a person are you?

5 Cool Things You Probably Don’t Know About Everyday Family
1. They are a family brand. Like for real. Noah’s lil sis Shiloh is a major player (and awesome dancer) at the company too. And many of their other siblings, a number of in-laws, and a stray cousin or two all contribute to the overall success of the brand as well. Tony (the sales guy pictured with Noah above) is not related, but they love him like a brother so it’s sorta the same thing. Its no wonder they are so down for hooking you up with quality info to keep you and your family healthy, happy, and in the know.
2. They are innovative. Not only do they work daily to bring you the best online experience possible in a parenting resource site, but they are constantly working to enhance it in ways I can’t tell you or they will have to kill me.
3. They can predict the gender of your baby and probably name it for you too. Or at least their site can. Maybe. Pretty sure that’s what the baby gender predictor and the baby names tool is about. Point is, they offer tons of resources for expectant parents too, not just those of us in the trenches already.
5. They love bloggers. Or maybe just me.
