I’ve been asked that question half a dozen times in the last two weeks. Everyone from coworkers to friends and family seem to be vocally curious if we are having unprotected sex or not. We’ve really enjoyed the first two plus years of having Mr. Dude around, but it has been a lot of work. Going from a childless couple to a couple with a child, as well you may already know if you are a parent or caretaker, causes a great change in your life. Those early months are wonderful and horrendous at the same time.
I love to spend quality time with my little family. I’d rather spend a Friday night at the drive-in or a Saturday at the park with them than get any gift. Physical gifts are great, but in the long run they wear out. Memories can last forever when written down and shared. I’ve always preferred experiences over things. They make me happiest. Its important for families to get moving and spend quality time together, especially during the sunny summer time. We don’t get easy winters in Chicago often so those sunny summer months are key. Made from nutritious and wholesome ingredients, KIND snacks are a perfect fit for our family and help to fuel our journeys.
We took a family trip to visit the official restaurant partner of the new movie this week and had a nice breakfast for dinner night out. We just had to try Denny’s action-packed fare with the new limited time ‘Slamtastic 4’ menu in honor of the new Fantastic Four movie.
My favorite car has to be the first car I purchased after getting married. It was a 2005 Hyundai Accent. It was automatic and the color was light blue. Getting our first car as a married couple was an unforgettable milestone.
I often wondered how “manly” I really was growing up. I’ve doubted my own manhood many times. I never really liked sports. I didn’t have anything against them, but I also didn’t know more than a handful of players names in any given sport. To this day the full scope of rules in a football game elude me.
One of the choices I had to make early on as a Dad Blogger was how I would treat my writing and sharing of stories about my family. This isn’t a problem solely dealt with by parent bloggers. It is also an issue any parent who shares information online should think about.
