A father age 45+ when a child is born. A fossil dad
is usually unable to play with his kids due to physical limitations brought upon by advanced age. Fossil dad
s combine the grumpiness, intolerance, and ignorance of today's price levels of a grandparent with the lack of understanding of a regular-age dad. Infrequently spotted with fossil mom
There are two types of fossil dads:
1) The most common by far are dads who had children with Mom 1 on a normal schedule, then shacked up with younger Mom 2 who wanted her own kids and found himself awake at 3am cleaning poop off his sleeve for the first time in 20 years.
2) Less common are the first-timers who, for reasons of religious commitment or other strictures took a little extra time to find "the right woman for him."
