The Eighth Birthday of the Fatherdad Blog

On this day eight years ago I made my first post on That was the first ever post by a black "daddy blogger." I searched high and low for one before I determined that I was it. I think that post is a hilariously bad and somewhat profound (and very much unnoticed) internet milestone. [...]

Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

Fatherdad’s Summer Round-up So Far…

When I'm not supporting public charter schools in the area of finance and accounting, building my non-profit (Black Dad Connection), publishing a book, designing a website, performing weddings, and just generally keeping busy as a father and husband I am, well, doing other things. For instance I read, play with toys, and generally don't sleep. [...]

We had fun yesterday on Halloween with Dev. He dressed up as Michael Jackson from "Beat It Live in Bucharest," showed some of his moves to strangers, then asked them for candy. But, let's be real, Halloween is not a holiday. However it's does seem to serve as the gateway to the real holiday season. [...]

My wife has this theory that Dev is spoiled because for the last week he has been noting that he is bored and only kids who have lots of fun all of the time would notice the few moments when they are bored. I must admit that he has said spoiled kid nonsense like [...]

This just makes me smile. Perhaps it will do the same for you. Just let it load (or click the words "slow progress?" to go to the site) and enjoy the theatrics. This post is a limited engagement so catch it while you can!

Since the beginning of October I have been listening to Christmas music. All kinds too - from Country and Metal to Soul and Hip-Hop and everything in between. It's really absurd and now that I see the words in black and white, it's also embarrassing. I need an ugly sweater and some felt reindeer antlers [...]

This past weekend my wife was sick with some kind of 24 hour bug. I was glad to see her resting for a change, but not under the circumstances. I purchased the soup and juice needed to combat any sickness and plowed her with acetaminophen to keep the fever down. I am also a self [...]
