IMG_0250

I did an interview recently for a parenting blog called www.DadofDivas.com.  They have a feature called “Dads in the Limelight” where they ask public figures who also are dads some questions about parenting, marriage and family life. Thanks to DadofDivas for allowing me to reprint the interview here. Be sure to check out their website for more resources on parenting, [Read More...]

I’m an A-hole Dad

(From my memoir, PregMANcy: A Dad, a Little Dude and a Due Date, on faith, fatherhood and family) Mattias: “Dad, I forgive you.” Me: “But I didn’t do anything wrong.” Mattias: “That’s okay. I forgive you anyway.” -Mattias, 5 years, 1 month I’m a big, gigantic jerk of a dad. My son, Mattias, is a charmer. [Read More...]

PregMANcy: A Publishers Weekly Review (Shameless Plug)

I realized that I never actually posted the review from Publishers Weekly of PregMANcy. For those unfamiliar, PW is kind of the industry standard for distributors, bookstore owners and other buyers to decide what is worth picking up. It’s kind of like Variety for film or Billboard for music. Anyhoo, I was plenty nervous about [Read More...]

A Hundred Hidden Kisses (Day Five)

Zoe found a couple of eggs in the henhouse after we left. She seems to be adjusting to our absence just fine so far.

Of course, being a guy it’s the kind of challenge that makes life worth living.
