A Daughter’s Fight for Justice for Slayings of Her Mom & Grandma That Led to Her Dad’s Arrest

When Alison Dupras learned that her mother and grandmother had been found dead in December — both fatally shot at home and left for days — the name of the killer came immediately to mind.

“I know that my father did this, I knew that as soon as I knew what had happened,” Alison tells PEOPLE. “I knew it right away. Right then and there, I knew.”

She even confronted dad Alan Dupras and implored him to turn himself in, but to no avail. “That’s all I wanted was for him to confess, either to me or to the authorities,” Alison says, “and I just knew that wasn’t going to happen.”

Alison was in regular contact with authorities during their months-long investigation and kept up public pressure for an arrest. She reportedly held a protest at the district attorney’s office in late July.

“We are gathering silently and peacefully to let (the district attorney) know that we as a community cannot accept anything other than an arrest and full trial…” she said then, according to the Fresno Bee. “I have been told the detectives are certain of who has committed this atrocity and any jury would find the suspect guilty.”

Alan, 58, never went to the police. But on Sept. 25 — nine months after the double shooting of his estranged wife, retired elementary school principal Jennifer Dupras, 55, and her 88-year-old mother, Cynthia Houk — authorities came to him.

Arrested at his home in Kingsburg, California, Alan faces charges of murder as well as possession of assault weapons, vandalism and two counts of arson.

He has pleaded not guilty and his attorney, Mark Broughton, dismissed the case as “purely circumstantial,” without eyewitnesses, a murder weapon or a confession.

Investigators, however, said they discovered enough proof to believe he was responsible.

• For more on the life and slaying of Jennifer Dupras and her mom and the arrest of Alan Dupras, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

Speaking to reporters the same day as Alan’s arrest, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims cited “technology and digital data” that helped implicate him as well as evidence “received just this month” that was “needed to confirm that he was in fact the suspect.” Mims also said there was signs the slayings were premeditated.

“We do know that he suspected there was a relationship between Jennifer and another man,” she said of Alan, “and those are the possibilities that we’re looking at as far as motive.”

A search warrant and supporting affidavit released this summer, before Alan’s arrest, further detailed out a series of allegedly incriminating discoveries in the murder investigation. For example, in December, investigators said they learned from a relative of Alan’s that he drunkenly “bragged” about setting Houk’s car on fire the month before she was killed.

He’d also researched ways to disable the computer in his truck in order to hide its location while driving, the affidavit alleges.

Two Lives Cut Short

The bodies of Jennifer and her mother were found in Houk’s Fresno home on Dec. 11, two days after both had been shot. The homicides — unusual for the area — came just as Jennifer seemed to be getting everything in her life in order.

Having recently retired from a 26-year career in education, she moved in with her mom and filed for divorce from Alan, ending a troubled 26-year marriage.

“She told me she was the happiest she had ever been,” Jennifer’s friend Kelly Rosales tells PEOPLE. “You could see it. I ran into her at a restaurant one night and she had the biggest smile. She was just light. She was just airy.”

Jennifer had even recently started dating again.

“She found someone who was really sweet to her,” her daughter says. “I’m not surprised, because she’s so perfect.”

Alan, says Alison, had “turned into this person with no hobbies and no interests and no life of his own.” Alison also says he was a heavy drinker prone to aggression when intoxicated, but he had been sober for about seven years until Jennifer announced she was ending things.

Alison says that when her mom decided to leave him Alan “was like, ‘I don’t know how she can do this to me,’ very much taking the victim kind of stance. He was pretty delusional about the whole situation.”

After the slayings, Alison told police about alleged “incidents of domestic violence” that were never reported, according to the search warrant affidavit.

Alison tells PEOPLE the deaths of her mother and grandmother have made her even more aware of the complicated burden faced by women in abusive relationships. She urges others to be vigilant and take steps to protect themselves.

“That’s my biggest takeaway,” she says, “and my biggest message.”

Dads Everywhere, Beware of Jimmy Kimmel’s Father’s Day YouTube Challenge

Jimmy Kimmel‘s notorious Halloween candy pranks have become some of the best videos on the internet — and now, he’s come up with a new YouTube challenge that might be just as funny.

On Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host debuted this year’s Father’s Day-themed challenge, and it’s as simple as it is hilarious.

“Every year, we issue a Father’s Day YouTube challenge,” explained Kimmel, 49. “In years past, we’ve asked you to spray Dad with a hose on Father’s Day, to serve him breakfast in the shower, to dump breakfast on him in bed — we’ve had a lot of very bad ideas.”

This year, however, the task was much more straightforward: just sneak up on your father and yell: “I love you, Dad!”

“I was starting to think this might not work,” explained Kimmel with a laugh. “But I was very, very wrong.”

“I am going to f—ing stick that thing so far up your a— that you’re going to taste it,” he said, staring right at the camera. “Do you understand me?”

Powerful Ad Reminds World Dads Are Parents, Too

Following up on its powerful ad about motherhood, Dove is celebrating dads with another emotional video.

The #RealDads ad for Baby Dove features video clips of dads with their kids to highlight the role they play in their children’s lives. 

The ad was inspired in part by research from Dove Men+Care brand. While mothers feel pressure to be perfect parents, fathers aren’t expected to be essential caregivers to their children. 

“Research tells us that the media focuses on fathers as ‘providers’ and ‘fixers’ over three times more often than as ‘emotional caregivers’ and over four times more often than a ‘daily caregiver,’ diminishing their role as parents ― when in fact, 97 percent of dads say they are involved in their child(ren)’s life and 7 in 10 see themselves as highly involved,” a Dove spokesperson told HuffPost.

Dove hopes this new campaign helps break down the stereotypes and preconceived notions that new parents face. 

As the captions state, “No matter which way you care for your baby, just know there’s no one ‘right’ way. Only our way. To #RealDads everywhere, trust your way.”

Dad’s Special Lunch Bag Drawings Help ‘Shy’ Son Come Out Of His Shell

Unless your parent is a gourmet chef or bento box master, school lunch is usually nothing to write home about.

For artist and father Dominick Cabalo, however, his son Nicholas’s lunches are a canvas for creativity.

Cabalo, who lives in Southern California, makes elaborate illustrations on each of 12-year-old Nicholas’s paper lunch bags, usually depicting popular animated characters and colorful superheroes. 

Cabalo began drawing on the bags about three years ago to help Nicholas make new friends in elementary school.

“I noticed he was a bit shy when it came to talking to others,” he told The Huffington Post. “So by creating a piece of artwork to ‘break the ice,’ kids would come up to him and start talking and hopefully a conversation, or better yet, a new friendship, would start.”

Though Nicholas is in middle school now, he still asks his dad to draw on the lunch bags, and will make requests for characters or drawings that he’d like to see on the next bag.

Some of the illustrations have timely significance, such as an entire month of creepy characters to celebrate Halloween in October or this beautiful Princess Leia portrait Cabalo created in memory of Carrie Fisher.

Cabalo has drawn about 400 lunch bags in the past 3 years. He explained on Imgur this week this week that the bags have really helped his son become more confident at school.

”He’s broken out of his shell because of this, and I like to think that I had a hand in helping him do this with these bags,” he wrote.

Nicholas keeps most of the bags (at least those that make it home from lunch unsoiled). “Some come back in better condition than others,” Cabalo wrote on Imgur. “We may lose one to the occasional soggy sandwich or leaky drink, but that’s to be expected.”

As for the bags that make it home intact, Cabalo posts their photos to Instagram. His favorites, he tells HuffPost, are the more time-consuming series of bags that can be joined up to create a larger image, such as the “Finding Nemo” triptych below.

Celebrating My Dad’s First Birthday After He Passed Away

July is my father’s birth month.

We’d always celebrate with a family gathering; if the weather was nice, badminton, lawn darts and a backyard barbecue were the activities du jour. If the clouds took over, plenty of conversation ensued indoors, streamers and celebratory décor looking down on our giggles and well wishes. The events always concluded with my dad eating his favorite chocolate crunch-filled ice cream cake.

It was a day filled with reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It was a time when we truly recognized that every day is nothing short of splendid, and that in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

However, my father passed away earlier this year, five months shy of what would have been a celebration of his 64 years on Earth.

2015-07-09-1436456556-2309831-HuffPostDadBday.jpg

Learning to Like the “Would Have Been” Phrase

“Would have been” always struck me as a silly phrase in reference to those who passed away. People who said it were allowing themselves to wallow — unnecessarily so — in sadness. Noting the would-have-been age of the departed mentally prolongs a life that no longer exists, a kind of latching on to that makes the loss all the more painful. Cherishing memories and thinking of the deceased are one thing, but a continual blow-by-blow account of every birthday, anniversary and career would-have-been was hard for me to understand. I’d often cringe inside upon hearing others say their grandmother, who passed 27 years ago, “would have been 98 today.” Same for headlines about celebrities who “would have turned 100 this week.”

Yet as is common in situations where we hold tight to an opinion until it directly affects us — at which point we’re often open to new views and develop drastic shifts in perspective — I quickly took a liking to the phrase after my father’s death.

What’s wrong, after all, in mentally bringing him back, be it looking through pictures, playing a recording of his voice or yes…recalling that July is his birth month and he would have been 64 years old. If the closest I get to having him back are moments in which I dream of him and in the beautiful memory of a Would Have Been, then in the end, I’m blessed. The day is nothing short of bittersweet splendor.

So, armed with a new appreciation for this world of Would Have Been’s, I take great pride in letting everyone know that this month is my father’s birth month. I reflect on what would have been, wondering what would have been said, what gifts I would have gotten him and who would have scrambled for that last piece of crunch-filled dessert.

It’s our first July without him, the lawn void of darts, the grill covered.

In Death, A Celebration of Firsts

However, this first is also cause for celebration.

My father is no doubt on a journey we have yet to fully understand and I can only imagine that its awe far exceeds any game of lawn darts. In some ways, I view his departure as a birth, imagining him in a perpetual state of streamers and crunchies, if you will.

As such, I’m going to make it a point this month to not only remember the 63 year journey he had on this planet, but I’m also planning to celebrate what is now his first journey beyond the ones he had here.

As with birthdays, so it is with a loved one’s death: it’s a time of reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It’s a time when we truly recognize that every day is nothing short of splendid, and in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

Happy first birthday, Dad.

17 Timeless Books Our Dads Read To Us When We Were Young

Reading to a squirming child can be a bit of a chore, especially the kind of child who demands to hear Goodnight Moon five times every night for a year and a half. Still, it’s one of the most rewarding ways parents can spend time with their little ones: fostering a love of books, cuddling, and creating lifelong memories. For parents who spend their days at work, the bedtime story can be a particularly cherished tradition.

With Father’s Day on the horizon, we wanted to remember the times our dads took the time to read a favorite book to us when we were small. Some of our dads read us Seuss, and some read us sci-fi, but one thing is for sure — we all remember the books our fathers read with us, and the joy those story times brought to our childhoods.

Below, in no particular order, HuffPosters recall the books their dads shared with them growing up. Tell us about your favorite childhood memory of reading with your dad in the comments!

1. The Hobbit

hobbit

No offense to Andy Serkis, but you haven’t heard the true voice of Gollum unless you were there when my dad read The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy aloud to my brothers and me when we were little. He’s an English professor, not a voice actor, but he got into the performance aspect with gusto, and even 20 years later, I can hear his Gollum impression in my mind’s ear. Unfortunately when he tried Watership Down, the bedtime reading tradition fell apart — we couldn’t get on board with warring bunnies — but I’ll always love that he looked at us three kids, all well under the age of 10, and thought, “Yep, it’s time to tell them a story about a faceless evil power bringing an end to life as we’d like to know it.” Thanks, Dad. -Claire Fallon, Culture Writer

2. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

mike mulligan

Before he retired, my dad was an electrician in New York City, a job that is full of tough guys doing physical labor. I wonder if him reading Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel to me and my siblings sticks out in my mind now because it gave a humanlike face and feelings to heavy-duty machinery, much like the kind I imagined my father working with all day. It brought my dad and his looming 6-foot-6-inch stature down to our level figuratively and literally, because I think we’d usually pile around him on one of our beds or the living room couch when a reading was happening. Today, I wonder if turning the beloved steam shovel into a furnace (spoilers!!!) really was the best plot resolution, but it still stands. Or that’s just my childhood nostalgia speaking. -Jillian Capewell, Entertainment News Editor

3. The Lorax

lorax

My dad used to read The Lorax to me all the time when I was little. I’m not entirely sure why we got so into it — it must’ve just been Dr. Seuss’s entrancing meter and repetition that kept bringing us back to it. To this day we’ll still sometimes say to each other “Those trees! Those trees! Those truffula trees!” -Alexandra Svokos, College & Education Fellow

4. Father and Daughter Tales

father daughter tales

My dad and I used to always read Father and Daughter Tales before I went to bed. When he was tired, he would sometimes skip parts of the story, but I had the entire book memorized, so I always caught him. When he would finish reading, he would always ask me, “So, what’s the moral of the story?” And sometimes, when we couldn’t track down Father and Daughter Tales he would read me Mother and Daughter Tales! -Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor

5. Hop On Pop

pop

When I was really little (2 to 4 years old) and learning to read, my dad and I would read Hop On Pop by Dr. Seuss. Well, he would read it me and use his finger to point to the words. I technically couldn’t actually read what was on the pages, but I memorized the book. Then, being inspired by the message of the book, I would subsequently attempt to hop on pop. -Eva Hill, Video Editor and Lead Animator

6. Miss Nelson Is Missing!

nelson

One of my fondest memories with my dad is when he used to read books to my sister, brother, and I. Some of the books that were a part of that childhood memory are Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, which both hold special places in my heart. But our ultimate favorite that Dad would read was Miss Nelson Is Missing! by Harry Allard. Why? Because as my dad puts it, “You guys were really surprised that the mean substitute teacher was Miss Nelson!” -Jacqueline Howard, Associate Editor, HuffPost Science

7. Officer Buckle and Gloria

gloria

When I was little, my dad would read to me every night before bed. One of my favorite books we read together was Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann. It’s the story of a police officer who tours the town of Napville teaching kids about safety. (The name “Napville” never struck me as odd before now … possibly because nap time was always a mandatory Williams family activity). Officer Buckle’s presentation receives a little spice with the addition of Gloria, a police dog with a penchant for dramatics. As Officer Buckle lists off his safety tips, Gloria acts out each potential catastrophe behind him, delighting their young audience. The story is funny, heartwarming, and features an acting dog, so basically I was in little-kid heaven. Even so, I’d often ask my dad to “read it funny,” at which point he’d go off-script and make up a nonsensical story, complete with voices and silly faces. I would laugh hysterically. And even after all this time, I still live by Officer Buckle’s Safety Tip #77: Never stand on a swivel chair. -Abigail Williams, Associate Social Media Editor

8. Frog and Toad Are Friends

frog

My dad would read Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad Are Friends to me and my sister — in particular the story “A Lost Button,” in which Toad loses a button off his jacket, and then he and Frog search for it. They find a bunch of buttons, but none of them are Toad’s. When my dad read us the story, he would read Toad’s dialogue with a mounting, apoplectic rage that I’m pretty sure Lobel didn’t include in the original version. “That is not my button,” my dad would snarl in Toad’s voice. “That button is SQUARE. My button is ROUND.” Obviously, hearing Toad grow closer and closer to snapping completely and murdering his best friend was, to me and my sister, the funniest thing in the world. -Alexander Eichler, News Editor

9. Tom Brown’s School Days

tom

My dad read a book out loud to me and my brother that no one has ever mentioned since to me: Tom Brown’s School Days. Never heard of it? That’s because your parent did not grow up in freshly independent India, in the shadow of the British Raj. Frankly, I don’t remember much about the actual story beyond a blur of boys and green fields. (A quick Wikipedia skim tells me the semi-autobiography was set in a country school in England — Rugby School — where in the early 1800s the book’s author, Thomas Hughes, got schooled). What I do remember is the Pavlovian thrill the sight of that worn and stark blue cover — no illustrations — stirred in me each night my dad brought it down from the shelf. This was the end of the day, the only time where I actually knew precisely where we all were for a stretch of time. It could have been any book. -Mallika Rao, Culture Reporter

10. The Napping House

napping house

My dad Kevin didn’t just read stories — The Napping House by Audrey Wood was always in the rotation — he was also amazing at making them up. “The Four Bears and The Red Bud Berries” was a favorite for my three siblings and me. Now he reads to and makes up stories for my kids, Eli and Henry, and man oh man, it melts my heart. -Katie Nelson, National Editor

11. Day of Infamy

infamy

I know what you’re thinking: A 1957 non-fiction book about the attack on Pearl Harbor isn’t exactly sentimental. Bear with me. My father, a surgeon, worked very long hours. But he always made time for me — on weekends, at nights before I went to sleep — and he liked nothing more than sharing his vast knowledge about history. He got that knowledge from books, most of which he kept in the library that was across the hallway from my bedroom.

It’s still there, with deep brown wood bookcases that go from floor to ceiling, only now he’s had to pile the books two deep in some places. He’d also taken over the shelves in another part of the house, much to my poor mother’s occasional dismay. But I get it. The library was the room that always made me happiest. I’d sit there for hours, plucking titles off the shelves and flipping through them in my father’s beat-up recliner chair.

Day of Infamy was one of the first “adult” books I could read as a kid. I must have gone through it a dozen times, which seems weird until you put yourself in the mind of an 11- or 12-year-old. Reading it made me feel grown-up. It made me feel like Dad. And that made me feel good. By the way, I’ve tried hard to carry on that tradition with my own two boys, both of whom hang out in my library and, before bed, demand that I give them history lessons. I’m not sure how much they like the history and how much they just like hanging out with me. But I don’t really care and I imagine my father has always felt the same way. -Jonathan Cohn, Senior National Correspondent

12. Make Way For Ducklings

duck

I have fond memories of reading a number of “vintage” books with my dad when I was little. One of our favorites was Make Way For Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. It’s a book that’s been around for a while, but the black-and-white drawings are still packed with action. I remember appreciating how the policemen went out of their way to assist the ducks and keep them safe during their journey to the pond. And when I visited Boston many years later, I was excited to see the statues of the Mallard family in Boston Common. Seeing them brought back memories of the many evenings my dad and I spent sharing the ducklings’ story together. -Sara Bondioli, Deputy Politics Editor

13. The Call of the Wild

wild

In middle school we had to read The Call of the Wild, which literally bored me to tears. To encourage me, my dad promised to read every chapter with me — he even took notes. At the end of the chapters we’d sit down and discuss what had happened and what we thought would happen next. Though it’s far from being one of my favorite books, I sort of like it, because without reading it, I would have never had that bonding experience with my dad. -Yagana Shah, Huff/Post50 Associate Editor

14. Into the Land of the Unicorns

unicorns

My dad demonstrated incredible patience in repeatedly reading first-grade me a novel called Into the Land of the Unicorns. It involved a young girl who got magically transported into a bizarre unicorn-inhabited land to deliver a secret message to the queen unicorn. Needless to say, this was probably not riveting reading material for a man in his 40s, but my dad persevered with enthusiasm and a (semi-limited) range of voices for different characters. -Hilary Hanson, Crime and Weird News Editor

15. Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop

curious george

When I was little, I loved reading Curious George with my dad. The most memorable book from the series is Curious George Goes to an Ice Cream Shop. It indulged my love of ice cream while instilling the importance of patronizing local businesses, even if the owners are a little crabby. -Katelyn Bogucki, Multimedia Producer

16. Ender’s Game

ender

I never was that into science fiction (not much has changed), but somehow, when I was in elementary school, my dad coaxed me into reading Ender’s Game, one of the many Orson Scott Card books he read. I loved it, and have probably read it a dozen times since. Looking back, it’s no surprise a story about a student chosen for a special adventure to save the world appealed to a daydreamy, bookish kid — it’s actually just like Harry Potter, if Harry Potter had futuristic technology of the ‘80s instead of magic and a space station instead of a wizard school. At the time, I loved having something to bond over with my dad, and also read all of the (much more boring) sequels for that reason. Now, I’m grateful that he taught me the rewards of being adventurous in my reading and otherwise, pushed me to take chances on the unfamiliar and took the time to share something he genuinely loved with his daughter. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

17. The Golden Compass

compass

I grew up in a family that loved science fiction and fantasy, so one of the first books that I remember bonding with my dad about with was The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. The protagonist Lyra was a fearless, talkative girl who was highly intelligent and loved adventure. That book was the beginning of our love for other fantasy and young adult books — including Harry Potter, Stargirl and The Lord of the Rings. Because Father’s Day and my birthday happen around the same time every year, it’s a special time for my dad and I to talk to each other about books and what we’re reading — as well as our love of reading. The written word has evolved from handwritten letters to words on a page to texting — and I wouldn’t trade the evolution of my relationship with my dad and our love of reading for anything. -Madeline Wahl, Blogs & Community Associate Editor

BONUS: Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem

fermat

When I was about 11, my dad, an engineer with a sick sense of humor, informed me that if I wanted to return to camp that summer, I would have to read and report on Fermat’s Enigma: The Epic Quest to Solve the World’s Greatest Mathematical Problem, the scintillating, true tale of a mathematician doing … math stuff. I have no idea if my dad was actually trying to get me interested in something he enjoyed, or was just playing a cruel parenting joke. While I complained and put it off ’til the last minute, I did read the entire thing, and I think I understood it. I maybe even secretly enjoyed the historical drama parts, but now I can remember the taunting image of Fermat’s face on the cover of Simon Singh’s book better than I could explain what an + bn = cn means. Still, this story is one of my favorites about me and my dad, one of the most revealing about our relationship and bound to crack us up if we retell it. -Kate Abbey-Lambertz, Detroit Editor

Stay-At-Home Dad’s Photos Prove Parenthood Totally Rocks

Some may think daily parenting tasks like making baby food, changing diapers and reading baby books are mundane, but actually they can totally rock.

Just ask photographer and stay-at-home dad Brian Reda, who posted a photo of him and his son at the zoo to Reddit. In the photo, his son stands looking through a glass partition at a bear as Reda’s hand can be seen in the corner giving the sign of the horns.

dad life zoo

After he received some backlash over the “metal hand” zoo photo, Reda decided to share the bigger picture of how he has documented life with his 9-month-old son, Livingston.

“The photos prior to my first ‘Dad Life’ image were cute and served the purpose of capturing him in all his infant glory,” he explained in an email to The Huffington Post. “The self-referential hand gesture, though, makes me part of the story. I know that sounds selfish, especially in our selfie-crazed culture, but the series is about our relationship. It’s about us. It’s about being father and son. We’re a little team. When he glances at the camera he’s connecting with Dad and the audience vicariously experiences our relationship.”

And those experiences are awesome.

“I began noticing that the mundane moments are often the best ones,” Reda said. “That’s where life exists. We always want to photograph the most exciting moments but often forget what life may have been like on a day-to-day basis. I’m just waiting for that perfect moment when he puts up the metal hand.”

Reda also gave a shout-out to the person who helped make “Dad Life” possible.

“There’s nothing more metal than dad life,” he said. “Well, I suppose the most metal award goes to my beautiful wife, Angela, who carried him, birthed him, nurses him, and now supports us.”

25 Reasons Kids Should Be Left Alone With Their Dads

Making fun of dads because they are “pretty much just giant children” is soooooooo 2011. Maybe y’all ain’t heard, but dads are getting all sorts of respect lately — not because they’re doing anything different, but because — ugh — who didn’t want to loosen up the grip a little, amirite?

Buzzfeed didn’t get the memo, so they put out a hilarious article titled “24 Reasons Kids Should Never Be Left Alone With Their Dads”. And besides some of the photos being genuinely funny with no real gender-specific blame to lather onto dad, it’s just kind of, well, you know… phoned in.

But here’s the thing: when you beat dads down over and over and make moms distrustful of them (even in jest), all it makes society say is “don’t leave your kids alone with dad — you KNOW what they do!” And then guess who has to deal with the pressure of raising kids, working, and doing their damn thing? Moms. So lay off, kk?

In light of this, I present to you 24 reasons (plus a bonus, you motherlovers) your kids should be left alone with their dads.

1. They’re Not Too Cool for Selfies


Because honestly, if a kid silly face will brighten your kid’s day, you check your pride and do it.

2. They Make the Coolest Lunch Pack-ins


Look for a Q&A with this dude here soon. Incredible work.

3. They’re Not Afraid of Creepy-Crawlies


There’s a couple of good “lizard” euphemisms I’ll pass up here.

4. They Know Their Way Around a Garden


And teaching a love for eating right!

5. The Best Family Portraits EVAR


Like, honestly.

6. They’ll Be At Every Game


Even if they’ve got two broken legs, they’ll make it there.

7. Family Movies in the Man-Cave


Because it’s just a cave if it’s not filled with family.

8. They’ll Wait Hours to Get You Next to the Trophy


You won’t care now, son, but when you’re older, it’ll be cool to have a pic of three generations next to that thing.

9. Discipline Is Sometimes in Character


Though really, everything BatDad does is in character.

10. Medical/Dental/Vision Insurance is a Number One Priority!


But you know what I mean.

11. They’re Into Crafts

And not above making up superheroes.

12. They Will Tell the Hell Out of a Story

Anything to make a bedtime story better.

13. They Beam With Pride


About everything their kids do — big and small.

14. They Make Great Pillows


And they don’t just run to Twitter to complain about it and demand wine.

15. They Aren’t Afraid


When their child arrived, they dove right in.

16. They Will Be Your Training Wheels


Until you can go it alone.

17. Seriously, the BEST Lunch Notes


We Q&A’d with this guy! Read it here!

18. They’re Not Afraid to Hold You Close


And take you everywhere.

19. They Let Their Kids Play With Their Old Toys


Because you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.

20. They Will Ride That Ride


Because it means a lot to you, son.

21. They Have Good Advice


Sometimes so good that it ends up in a book.

22. They Have a Conference About Being a Good Dad


And the support there flows. Pic of dad blogger Lorne Jaffe.

23. They Can Show Mercy


From BusyDadBlog: “She said ‘aw it’s so cute’ and proceeded to pet this fish. Of course we had to let it go.”

24. They Will Catch You


Not just when you fall, but when you jump.

25. They Honor Their Spouses With Pictures Too


Because if they didn’t respect their spouses, why would they be raising a kid with them?!

Your move, Buzzfeed.
