Todd Piro, 6:30 P.M., £20 discussed on Fox News


Most of what dads do is take. It's what we do that line from the movie. Daddy's home. You know, the one that's always on basic cable at three PM on a Saturday won't go down in history alongside I'm going to make him an offer. He can't refuse, but no quote, sums up fatherhood so brilliantly. And his dad's wouldn't have it any other way. Oh, sure. We still love to complain about the job, one in which both sleeping and eating or events that need to be calendar where your bank account. It's drained instead of direct deposited where your tiny boss throws major temper tantrums out of the blue, and this doesn't include any of the gross stuff. But the benefits at this job now that's where the good stuff is laughs that validate your reason for being finger grabs that touch your soul smiles that melts your heart. Of course, this father's Day is extra special to me, because it's my first and man, Am I ever playing the part of dead and the typical dad ways? If you are a light, I'm turning you off. If you are Eircom dish inning, I am turning you up. They have to agree. When no one's looking. I celebrate a forecast of rain like I won the Super Bowl because it means I don't have to water. Dad jokes. I mean, come on. Have you seen Fox and friends first? And let's just say the £20 I've packed on since birth have put me squarely in Dad Bod territory for the upcoming beach season. But while you always hear just wait to see how your life will change once you have a kid, I love the changes, even though it means an already difficult schedule has grown near impossible. For instance, I never envisioned my life could get any more taxing than a daily middle of the night. Wake up call Ha! Now mix that in with a 6:30 p.m. bedtime, thanks to baby tasks, and there's a good chance that I lose consciousness by Friday each week, But when I just don't think I could push it out anymore. I get fueled by baby giggles and realize there's nothing else I'd rather be doing. Let's face. It already had my dream job before Baby. I get to deliver the news interview guests on the most important topics of the day and make people laugh every now and again. But now on my first father's day, I know what it's like to have the greatest job in the world. It's awesome to finally be part of the club and, no, I don't need the ubiquitous tie as a gift. Being a dad is the best gift ever. I am Todd Piro, anchor of Fox and Friends. First you've been listening.
