Fatherhood Friday Funniest Dad Quote, Thanks Ryan Reynolds

Screen Shot 2015-07-31 at 1.10.15 PMDads say the darndest things.  The star of the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds just made my day. The actor and recent father of a beautiful baby girl with actress Blake Lively, named James. What?  My daughter’s name is Michal (pronounced Michael), so say something – LOL.

Okay, I will share a few fatherhood quotes from Reynolds. I died after the first one.

“I used to say to her (MY WIFE), ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you.’ And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment, if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.”

“Everyone thinks their baby is a genius. People find it delightfully refreshing when I tell them, ‘My baby? Totally average. Like, 100 percent average.'”

“If anything else woke up every 45 minutes during the night demanding to see my wife’s breasts, you kill it. [But with] a baby, you’re like, ‘Wahoo!'”

“It’s amazing that you can be that exhausted and that happy at the same time.”

I take a lot of pride in being a great father. With that, every decision I make today, I understand that affects him. I take a lot of pride in going about that the right way and I’m someone he’ll look up to.

My thing is, I want to be the best man I can be, when I preach to my child certain things – what to do, what not to do, just the right thing in general – he’ll respect it, because I lived it and I walked it. That’s what I’m trying to do right now. – Torrey Smith

Fatherhood Friday Chris Brown

Normally, I could care less what Chris Brown says or sings about, but he joined our fraternity when he welcomed or confirmed that he had a daughter.  Royalty is now 1-years old and he seems to be talking a good game, at least. #FatherhoodFriday Salute Breezy … fatherhood definitely has the power to change.

“Being a father is great. I’ve been able to set aside my own wants and necessities for my daughter.  Everything is about her.” – Chris Brown

 

Fatherhood Friday Guarding the Galaxy

Today, we ride with Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt, father of 2 year old son Jack and husband to actress Anna Farris. Jack was born nine weeks premature, and as a father of premature twins, I can relate to the helplessness and call on God to get you through.  Pratt recently had some cool words to say about his experience becoming a dad.  Also check him out in  “Guardians of the Galsxy,” recently released on DVD, a movie that really surprised me. I loved it.  Can’t wait to watch it with my son. #FatherhoodFriday #DadsRule

On seeing his son in NICU

“It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it.”

“I’ve done all kinds of cool things as an actor: I’ve jumped out of helicopters and done some daring stunts and played baseball in a professional stadium, but none of it means anything compared to being somebody’s daddy.”

“I made promises in that moment about what kind of dad I wanted to be and I just prayed that he’d live long enough that I could keep them.”

 

Fatherhood Friday The X Factor

Fatherhood Friday with the father that would protect his family by any means necessary. Today’s quote is from Malcolm X speaking to middle-aged fathers, especially. #DadsRule #FatherhoodFriday

“Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so ‘safe,’ and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure.” -Malcolm X

Fatherhood Friday Walter White and Nursery Cursing

Bryan Cranston starred as chemistry teacher turned drug dealer, Walter White, in the AMC Emmy winning series “Breaking Bad,” and now gets to lace some profane nursery rhymes in by narrating author Adam Mansbach’s “You Have to F…… Eat.”  Reading a book like this sounds like something his “Breaking Bad” character, Walter White, would do. Clearly, that character is not too far removed from the real guy.  Cranston is the father of two kids, with his youngest being a 20-year old daughter. Fatherhood Friday we salute the bad ass dad that is Bryan Cranston.

I want to be able to experience everything. I want to experience being a husband, experience being a father, experience, maybe, hopefully, someday being a grandfather, and all those things. I want that experience. When I die, I want to be exhausted. – Bryan Cranston

Fatherhood Friday Ray Donovan

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 5.37.07 AM

Today we are rolling with Liev Schreiber, Hollywood fixer in the hit Showtime series Ray Donovan (Season 2). The actor makes his kids a priority and celebrating fathers like that is what Fatherhood Friday is all about.  He has two sons with longtime partner actress Naomi Watts — 6-year-old Sasha and 5-year-old Samuel.

“It’s amazing how insignificant everything else becomes,” Schreiber said of his fatherhood. “It sounds romantic. But the reality is that you go brain-dead for 2 ½, 3 years and slowly return to the world. … You kind of lose all ambition.” – Liev Schreiber
