What’s Brewing: Dads and family time, detachable jeans, former UCONN star breaks record

(WTNH)-Whether it’s giving piggy-back rides or changing diapers, dads today seem to be taking a more active role in raising their children.

The report also found that fathers are putting more time into their families than ever before.

Remember the expensive mud jeans? Well, here’s the next big thing: detachable jeans!

If you want a pair, it’ll set you back 570 bucks!
