I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: Where The Dad Bloggers At?

In the vicious wild of the blogosphere in a creature mighty impressive, but rarely seen. He’s ferociously protective of his young, carving out territory to tell their tales without overexposing them to the dangers of the world. He creates for his peers that may never see his craft, […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: Happy Father’s Day — What IS a Dad???

I didn’t know what to expect when I became a Dad. It’s not like I lacked good fatherly figures — my father made sure I could handle whatever the world threw at me, and my grandfather made sure to show me what it meant to stay devoted to relationships for decades […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: #BubblesMyWay — Keeping It Mum

For this month’s post, SodaStream asked: “What empowers you?” What keeps me going more than anything else is knowing I’m making a positive difference in the world. Whether through covering  things people wouldn’t consider otherwise; raising a son that’ll know the key to a successful life is the balance between being respected, […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: Fatherhood 101 — Learning Curves

One month down, 939 or so to go (well, a little less for me, of course). Fatherhood isn’t for every man, but it’s not as frightening as we think it is. I wish I spoke newborn. With Week Five of the Life and Times of DoomzToo wrapped up, […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD — And Baby Makes Three

If you’d asked me a decade ago whether getting married and having a kid were anywhere on my life’s horizon, I’d have laughed in your face and called you crazy. Even over the 10 years that followed, parenthood was a topic that barely registered in my mind — […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: Stankin’ Tuesday

What up, what up, y’all? It’s your boy Case P. here on a Stankin’ Tuesday, where I was so distracted this morning that I forgot to put deodorant on, but them’s the breaks. Today I started a new job — in fact, the 9th job in the last 6 years. […]

I’M NOT DEAD, I’M JUST A DAD: The Road to Fatherhood — First Steps

The Dad is the unsung hero of parenting, and it’s easy to see why. They don’t grow babies inside of them for 40 weeks. They don’t breastfeed or have the same degree of parental instinct as mothers do. In many parenting situations I’ve seen, the role of the Dad is […]
