Fandad's Short Take "A Day at the Zoo"

Every now and then your child will say something to you that completely takes you off guard. Yesterday, while riding the Merry-Go-Round at Lincoln Park Zoo, my little girl said something to me that brought me to tears.

Waving to the camera.

As the Merry-Go-Round was moving I let go of the bar of the animal next to me to hold on to the giraffe my little girl was on. She looked at me and told me to not let go of the bar because she did not want me to fall off. She next said that she didn't want me to get hurt because I was her "brave friend, my best friend and I love you and we won't have fun together if you're hurt."  I gave her a kiss on the forehead as my eyes teared up and told her I love her too. I held on to that bar as we rode around and around and we both waved happily to my wife when we saw her standing on the side with our little man. 

Kids say the damnedest things sometimes. 

Thanks for reading,

T-Shirt Thursday!

Quick post today, lots of exciting things going on, and we'll have plenty to write about soon. Until then, here's this week's tee!

The fine folks at have a nice variety of awesome t-shirts, hoodies, and other swag influenced by Latino culture. This particular design is a play on the iconic Hecho En Mexico image.

I purchased both of these for my girls and they love them. My oldest even learned the word Chicago thanks in part to her shirt! That's it for tonight, to find out more about No Manches Clothing Co. you can visit them here!

We've Only Just Begun!

Hello friends, Fandad Victor here and we just wanted to thank everyone that has been supporting us on the website for the past three years.  As you can see, we have been a little behind with posts, but we are hoping to alleviate that situation within the next few weeks. To try to keep us on task, we have hired a new assistant.  So far she's been a great help answering phones, taking messages and it doesn't hurt that she has her own laptop.

T-Shirt Thursday!

How do you start a new segment and miss it the following week?  Well, we here at Fandads are guilty of doing that, so to make up for our error we have two shirts to share with you today.  The first shirt we got through LootCrate and it was part of the June crate. Don't know what LootCrate is?  Just click the link to go to their site and sign up to get a box of awesome sent to you every month.  Every now and then they have a surplus sale and maybe this shirt will be available again soon.

The second shirt we are sharing is from ShirtPunch and it combines two of our favorite things: Star Wars and The Walking Dead. This shirt is a great ode to Michonne and her pets which are here in robot form.  Unfortunately this shirt is not available anymore, but sign up for their daily e-mails to see the awesome shirts they have available that day and at $10 each, it's a steal!

Fandads T-Shirt Thursday

We decided to start a new feature here on Fandads and every week we will highlight a new/cool T-Shirt that we either own or have seen.

This week, being that it's July 4th we'll start off with a bang, because what can be more American than Captain America and Iron Man? 

This shirt I purchased through Shirt Punch last year. They offer unique shirts for 24 hours, once they're gone, they're gone. Each shirt is only $10, so check them out today!
