Seeing your daughter make her first contact in T-ball . . . and watching her run to third base. Overhearing your child's friend call you "a cool dad." You now have a valid excuse to stock up on Snickers and Pringles.The wit within "500 Great Things About Being a Dad" makes it an ideal Father's Day or new-dad gift.
