About Me

Meet Dan--that's me!
I'm the proud father of two great children. They are grown up now, and although I would have preferred to be a stay-at-home dad, I had to work. Luckily, I could work out of my home so I was around a lot. I  ran a video production company, had a couple of great guys working with me and it allowed me to be around the children a lot. I was the "fun guy" for my kids and fathering was something I just took to.

When my daughter, Perri became pregnant, I was glad to see my son-in-law Don was doing everything right--or virtually so, we're always winging it, right? It got me thinking that so many dads would like to be more emotionally involved and knowledgeable when it comes to their wives' pregnancy and the first couple of years of their children's lives.  

The first two years of life seemed like a lot to bite off, so I decided to start off with pregnancy and the first year of your baby's life. I could always expand upon it later. So that's what I did. 

I hope you will find my experiences and insights useful. Pretty soon I'll be helping with my first grandchild's upbringing, which is sure to help my writing. When I'm not blogging and hanging out with family, you may find me writing a new song or writing a film script.
