Who are we and what do we stand for?
Well let me tell you a little about myself, I’m 37 years old, born in England. I moved to Illinois in and moved around the states for the last 13 years chasing my job.
I have two step kids with my wife who I have raised as a stepdad since they were 4 and 9. I have twin girls who are now firmly seated at the threenager table to the left. We recently added our son to the mix who is 3 months old. So you can say that the last 13 years had been a pretty wild ride, and I have a little to bring to the table.
I was always told every day is a school day and as you well know, a life as a dad this is truer than you care to admit. I have learned a whole new level of patience I didn’t know I possessed. I can negotiate with little dragons better than most governments. I am able to stand smells and duties that my pre-dad self would have done all in their power to avoid. Am I going to be all preachy, no chance? This shit is hard, it’s a constant battle and learning game but if you can’t have a laugh with it then maybe its time to start.
I want to cultivate a great community of dads, we will have advice, jokes, finances, deals, pictures and more.
So welcome again fellow inter-dad. Make yourself at home, grab a beer, coffee or whatever floats your boat and share your experience with the tribe, stronger with experience.
