Soldier Surprises 6-Year-Old Daughter At School On Her Birthday

By  •  News

This is a wonderful moment between a father, Sgt. Adam Page and his 6-year-old daughter, Bailey. Unfortunately NBC’s Today Show was there to f*ck it up. Now, this is just a hunch, but I suspect NBC – just like every other news network – was trying to get in on the sweet viral *click* action that is Welcome Home Blog. Instead, the camera operator invasively moved around the father and daughter like he was shooting porn. Seriously, check it out and tell me they both didn’t look slightly annoyed.

Five Georgia Fathers Challenge Jail Sentences for Inability to Pay Child Support

By  •  News

Five fathers in Georgia are fighting back against a court system they claim creates a “debtor’s jail” for already down-on-their-luck parents.

Represented by the Southern Center for Human Rights, the fathers seek to challenge the jail sentences handed out to parents who, unable to pay child support, are unable to hire a lawyer to defend themselves, and are sent to prison. This, the fathers say, further restricts their ability to acquire employment and pay off the debt.

8-Year-Old Girl, Zoe Thomson, Shreds On Guitar

If you haven’t heard of The Mini Band, then you’re welcome. They’re 5 lads, 8-11 years old, and they’re more talented than 90% of the bands out there today. The best part is they’re not annoying hipsters with attitudes who believe they invented the mustache. Sh*t, they can’t even grow mustaches. They’re just innocent little kids who have a talent to share and have a good time practicing and performing.

8BD Talks to Dicken Schrader, the Depeche Mode Cover Dad

As I swiped my way through news on the Flipboard iPhone app a couple nights ago, I kept seeing headlines for the “best dad ever” covering Depeche Mode songs with his kids. I watched the videos and had to talk to Dicken Schrader, the dad behind them.

Columbian-born Dicken Schrader, who won three golden internets for these videos, was nice enough to talk to us about his now-immortal father-son-daughter Depeche Mode covers. If you haven’t seen them yet because you’ve been camping in the Grand Canyon for the weekend, you can check them out along with our interview, after the hopperooski.

3 More Ways New Dads Can Help With Breastfeeding

By  •  News

The editors over at BabyShowerForGuys.com put together a list of seven ways new dads can help with breastfeeding. They offered some good tips – stuff like “become the water boy,” and “offer to take charge of the burping and changing.” Solid stuff. But they missed a couple tips, and that’s where 8BitDad sails in all helpful-like.

I mean, hopefully.
