Popular thinking about tomorrow Father's Day celebrations will mostly center on one man and his one or many offspring. And all hail to that ...

Dad and Pop: An Ode to Fathers and StepfathersBut there are also two dad families out there. President Obama noted them in his father's day proclamation: "Nurturing families come in many forms [including] a single father, two fathers, a stepfather, a grandfather, or caring guardian. ... all our fathers deserve our unending appreciation and admiration." And there are the dad-step-father families as loving celebrated in Kelly Bennett's picture book Dad and Pop: an Ode to Fathers & Stepfathers. When you think about it two males acting as fathers are everywhere, even where popular thinking would never have imagined such as with the two goose dad family in Tulsa, Okla.

Happy (Two) Fathers Day, as well.
