A Daddy’s Birthday Gift

My Mother and MeMany, many years ago in a land far, far away… well, in Florida… a baby boy was born on this day.

    Such a great collection, it is really nice to have all the best articles listed on this page. I’ve just bookmarked this post, and when I will have some extra time at the weekend, I will know what to do :)

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you so much, Andrea! I’m pretty sure there are some people on Facebook and Twitter who wonder why my name is “adaddyblog”. 😉 So I thought I’d share a few posts.

  2. Rachel J. Acosta

    This is very interesting blog and for sure, we will be happy to read it. Thanks that you shared. I love this link up… Good thing you post such valuable information like this.
    So thanks for hosting!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thanks, Rachel. I hope you find it helpful.

  3. Anna

    Thanks for this retrospective collection of your posts, it is really helpful to get to know you, although I am quite a newbie on your blog. Thanks for the huge amount of entertaining texts!

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you, Anna. Not such a newbie, really. Thank you very much for your support!

    “What happens when the handsome prince leaves you with 3 little prince & princesses to feed and an underwater mortgage on the castle? How does Disney prepare our girls for that?”

    Seeing those words already hooked me up. Now for reading the entire entire post…

    1. Michael Schmid

      I hope you enjoy it. Reviews on that particular post are mixed, however. The negative one’s seem to be driven largely by emotional attachments to those stories formed as kids?

  5. Laura

    Nice collection of the highlights, I haven’t followed you for a long time and this retrospective post lets me to get to know you a little bit. There are only a few male dad bloggers on the net, it’s always interesting to find a new face.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Hi Laura. Thank you for the kind words. We dad bloggers are certainly outnumbered, but there are quite a few of us out there. Thanks again!

  6. Ken Rodgers

    I visited some of the blogs mentioned above and surely they are awesome. Especially the ones that has tips on how to be a better dad caught my attention the most. I don’t if that was because I am aspiring to be a dad soon, but anyways I liked it. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    1. Michael Schmid

      I’m really glad you found something useful in it. I’m certainly not the perfect dad. The fact you are thinking about this before you even have a child, Ken, suggests you’ll do just fine. :)

  7. Sandy

    Thank you for sharing this great collection to your readers. I have read some of your posts but never got to comment on them. Got this one bookmarked for later reading. It’s nice to read blogs/articles from a daddy’s point of view.

    1. Michael Schmid

      Thank you, Sandy. I really appreciate your comment. It’s always nice to know someone’s reading them. Hope everything is going great with you and yours? Doing super here!

    Valuable information. The readers will love to read this especially the thoughts about becoming a better dad .

    1. Michael Schmid

      I’m glad you liked them. I’m most proud of a few, such as the one on Miscarriage. That said, they can’t all be that serious, e.g. my I Hate Dora the Explorer post. 😉
