In the summer of 2011, I became a man. I don’t mean that in a literal sense – I didn’t have a Bar Mitzva or anything. But in the summer of 2011, I learned that I was going to
be a father. My Dad once told me that you don’t really become a Man until you have a child of your own. Now, I had helped to create a human being and I was soon going to be promoted from husband to Dad.
I started this website because I thought I should have a place where I can vent, rant, expound, philosophize, cry, and laugh through the zany adventure that is fatherhood. I started out while my boy was still a wee bun in the oven. I had dreamed that I’d have a million things to say and write about, and that I’d fill up pages and pages with posts and articles and the like. Little did I know that even getting enough time to sleep and eat would be a challenge in the beginning.
So this site got to a slow start. But now it’s become a place that’s become a repository of all things that I am learning as my wife and I raise our son and mold him into a good, moral, wise, and happy human being.
So come along with me on this wild and wooly ride. As I am discovering (and will continue to rediscover) again and again, being promoted from husband to Dad brings more responsibilities, more stress, more work, less sleep, less money and time (for yourself), questionable benefits and lots of on-the-job-training pressure, but smack me upside the head if it isn’t the most glorious and joyful job I (or any other man) will ever have as a human being.
