2 daughters (Jan 2008 & April 2010).
I’m a happily married Dad who likes to be involved. I live in one of the many suburban communities outside of New York City, where I commute into every day for work. I pride myself on creating a parenthood experience that is a partnership with my wife, rather than either one of us being the sole owner of a specific parenting task or responsibility (i.e. I don’t hear my cell phone ring every time my daughter has a dirty diaper). Obsessed with researching products prior to purchasing, I am often the bottleneck for procuring any electronics, furniture, toys, baby bottles, sippy cups, toddler beds, breast pumps, you name it (I like to think we end up with better stuff in the end, so it’s worth the wait).
I am a Dad with a wife and two kids. I’m now getting back to becoming “Happily Married”, kids took a toll on my marriage but my wife and I persevered. As a result, I’ve accumlated a lot of battle-tested Fatherly knowlege. You’ll notice my blog posts don’t tend to be something you’d hear from a Father of the Year. I’m not the perfect Father, I’m not the guy at his kids soccer game screaming from the sidelines. I’m the type of Father who realizes that while kids are an important part of his life, so too is his Marriage. So my blog posts will center more on how to manage your family, which includes yourself and your wife. If you give everything to your kids then the foundation of your Marriage will give way, and you’ll end up a “Parental Unit”.
Happily married to my best friend for 7 years and have 2 wonderful children (boy-5, girl-4). I live in the suburbs and work in the city, the commute is hell, but it makes the time at home all the more precious. My posts are meant to share the experiences we have been through, the funny, serious, happy and sad. I am as active at home as I can be and work with my wife as a partner. My wife and I enjoy the simple things in life, cooking, time with friends, and trying to slow down to enjoy this wonderful journey of parenthood we are on.
