So, you're gonna be a father. You know you need to buy a bigger house. You need more room for the child. You need more than a one-bedroom apartment. You must have a new crib―you can't use the one your neighbor said you could borrow. And you know you gotta replace your car. It must have six airbags at least. It must come with an AC straight from the manufacturer.

What comedian Marcos Piangers found out when he became a young parent is that all these concerns don't make any difference. It's not worth it to pay for the best daycare, if you're the last one picking up your child. It isn't about buying the most expensive gifts, because children really like playing games that are available for free.

What the entertaining and emotional stories in Dad's Cool show us is that, deep down, you only need to be there―not physically there while thinking about something else, but REALLY there.
