Single Dad Laughing - Dan Pearce - Lying Truth

I consider myself a very honest person. And by very honest, I mean mostly honest. But I told a big, fat lie recently and got busted for it by my kid's mom...

I debated sharing this letter I wrote after being told I "struggle" with faith. I mean... Do I struggle? Or is my definition of faith just a little different?

I dared you all to ask your small children, "what is the number one thing that makes me weird?" The replies that came in were beyond entertaining. Hahaha.

I don't recall serious heartache or sadness during my first 10 years of life. But in 5th grade, all that changed. This was my story and my thoughts on bullying.

Somebody had the nerve to ask me right in front of my son, "how much did he cost?" So, please listen up. When adoption is involved... never say these 12 things.

This was the hilarious conversation I had with my child to help him finally get what I've been going through...

Just when I was ready to throw in the towel on my son's and my entire disappointing weekend together, an unexpected moment made everything change in a hurry...

New to the city, my scared (and now awake) child asked what had just shaken the entire house. Rather annoyed by it myself, I decided to tell him... the truth.

It was one of those desperate and impossible moments that as a dad, I've hoped my entire life to never find myself in...

What was quickly becoming one of the hardest nights I've ever had as a parent took a course all its own after these words were involuntarily shouted by my kid.

Every week for a year I have asked hundreds of thousands of people to tell me the 100% honest truth. These 60 new replies are so powerful, funny, and poignant.

We all want a happily ever after. We want to know what eternity looks like. But this is why that was really hurting me, and the irony I learned about it.
