Family is not an important thing. It’s everything. Michael J. Fox
Amber wants this to be a family blog, not just another mom blog. So this is my first Dad Blog contribution. I guess it should be more of a dad blogger introduction post.
Random Facts about me, the new dad blogger

My parenting goals

- We are really winging the rest of it.
Amber likes to travel, I just carry the bags and hold on for the ride. I took off Wednesday to go with her to get the boy’s passports done so that stops holding us back. I should go buy her flowers now because she’s a grump today.
Now I have a favor from you? Who are your favorite dad bloggers? Is there a dad blog handbook? Dad Blogging Etiquette? Where do I find the best dad bloggers?
