SuperDad Award: Jason Sobel

SuperDad Award: Jason Sobel

Sometimes life takes unexpected twists and turns. Sometimes your story is not exactly how you imagined. Sometimes you have to go through some darkness before you find yourself back in the light. And sometimes, once you find that light you know it’s exactly where you are meant to be. Jason is that light for me. Jason was my “second chance,” and I was his. He shows me unconditional love and support, and has my back in everything, including cheering me on from the sidelines with my blog, www.whineandcheezits.com and my podcast, The Keep It Real Moms… and pretty much any endeavor I throw myself into. He is my “sicker than the average” everything. He keeps me sane more than he makes me insane… and that’s love. I feel lucky every day that we get to do life together, even when he kvetches. Marriage and life in general is hard, you guys. But… when you have a true partner and you don’t just love each other, but LIKE each other, you can’t ask for anything more. I hit the jackpot.

SuperDad Award: Augustine Francis

SuperDad Award: Augustine Francis

Augustine is a SuperDad because he is the finest example of a risk-taker in changing his job, and he never fails to prove himself in every decision that he makes. He corrects us when we are wrong and supports us in our family decisions. Moreover, he has always encouraged me to attempt the unbelievable, like flying a twin-seater airplane or shooting an AK-47 Rifle. No one would have thought it would be a special gift for a wife. To his daughter, he is always a cool dad, and to me, my lucky charm.

SuperDad Award: Joe Carlos

SuperDad Award: Joe Carlos

My husband Joe is the epitome of a Superfly SuperDad! Ever since the day he delivered our 2.5 year old daughter, Sage (yep you read that right!), he has been the biggest Papa Bear I’ve ever seen.

You see, our daughter decided not keep us all waiting for her arrival, and while the nurses were on a shift-change, decided she was ready to see the world! Her dad, with the direction of the doctor on-call, literally guided her into this world. I continue to watch him do that everyday as he teaches her the important things in life (read: everything about the Dallas Cowboys) and protects her from all hurt, harm, and danger.

Whether they are at the park playing on the slide or sitting on the floor doing puzzles, one thing is clear…they are two peas in a pod. His love for her shines through in every hug, kiss, and playful moment. After endless episodes of Elmo, he is never too tired to give her rides on his shoulders or toss her into the air as she screams with glee. She’s her first love and my last. He’s the best SuperDad ever!

Superdad Award: Chris Harris

Superdad Award: Chris Harris

My husband Chris is a Superdad to our girls, Elise and Ellery. Smart, talented, and caring, he somehow manages to juggle work and family, while also finding the time to serve at our church and take our girls on daddy-daughter dates (something they absolutely love)! He is a true inspiration and example to those around him, and we couldn’t be luckier to have this Superdad in our lives!
