My name is Pat. I became a dad on May 2, 2015 to our beautiful daughter, Daniella and then again in 2018 to identical twin girls; Siena & Camila. Before you read this Dad blog there are a few things you should know about me – I’m NOT an expert in fatherhood; I am not a coach or a mentor.
In fact, I’m an awkward man-child. I make jokes at inappropriate times and worse yet, laugh at them. Fatherhood has not altered this in me and I do and say things with loving undertones that boggle my wife’s mind. Rather than keep these details private (which I probably should!) I decided I’d throw some of them here in a blog.
I was eager to chronicle my navigation through the complex and often confusing world of Fatherhood. I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog for some time, but then always had something that would get in the way (this happens a lot when you have kids). Eventually, my wife and I decided that I should adapt to Fatherhood first and foremost, then blog about my experience once we were in a little bit of a better place. Even when I told her one night that I was working on launching the blog she asked me “You’re really doing that”. I feel being a Father is the most important job bestowed upon a man and I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to document my progress and give Daniella (and my soon-to-be twins) something to look back on later in life. Maybe even build a community of fathers and others who can share some of their own experiences. Here I’ll provide my little victories and epic fails. I’ll try my best to answer questions and give product reviews, so please do get in touch, join the conversation, share Dad hacks and subscribe to the mailing list. Remember, nobody’s perfect, we all make mistakes.
I hope to have some fun with this, learn a thing or two and maybe even offer some insight to other dads, expecting parents, and the moms out there.
Thanks for dropping by,
