  • Even though Coffron isn't a stay-at-home-dad, he said he has tons of respect for men who are. "I have about as much time as other people and I know stay at home dads who have less time than me and put everything they have into their kids.

I totally respect and admire the stay at home dads that I know." Here, Tangled with Rapunzel bread and pasta hair.
