The Eighth Birthday of the Fatherdad Blog

On this day eight years ago I made my first post on fatherdad.com. 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. [...]

FOR OUR 6th BIRTHDAY WE MOVED!

Six years ago in this month I started the fatherdad.com/African American Dad blog through Malecare Inc. Since then I have been writing and working on a so many projects in addition to my regular 9-5 work that I am kind of dizzy. Even when I have gone radio silent for long stretches, I'm usually busy [...]

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Love this song. It takes me back to my youth when the family, and I mean all of them, got together for every holiday from Mother's Day to New Years Day. Times have changed and we've been through (and are going through) some stuff. But the love remains. This is how we used to do [...]

A POTTY MOUTH CHRISTMAS

Have you noticed that people, even in a big city like New York, chill out and relax their nerves a little during the holidays? Me neither. But let's assume they do and we just haven't been in the right place at the right time to experience it. I do think in general we feel more [...]

AND SO IT BEGINS AGAIN… THE HOLIDAYS!

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. [...]

HALLOWEEN STILL ROCKS

With the Christmas holiday season starting earlier and earlier each year it's getting increasingly challenging to get into Halloween spirit. The other day I went to my favorite local variety store to grab some Halloween creepiness for the house and what I found was quite amusing. My decorations section was filled with the joy of [...]

SUMMER’S END

The summer came to it's unofficial close a couple of weeks ago and will be officially in the record books when fall begins on September 23rd. This year was the first year Dev went to a real camp and he had a ball from day one. It was a relief in the sense that we [...]

NAUSEA-INDUCING PARENT PRIDE

Over the years I have written quite a bit about my family and being a dad. I have shared the good, the bad, and the depressing. So in my own head I think that I have earned the right to gush about Dev's current successes (Did I mention that my son, after all the years [...]
