Hi! I'm Michael, the founder and editor of adaddyblog.com. I'm a university director by day and a lifestyle blogger by night. More than anything, I'm a husband and a dad. This site targets parenthood from the dad’s perspective, and includes a big focus on family travel, entertainment, technology, social media, coffee, cars & cuddles. ;) Leave a comment on one of my posts and let me know you were here, or connect with me on any of the social media sites linked via the icons along the top left of this page!
A very nice post. This will really make a lot of positive changes in parenting.
Thanks, Douglas. Clearly I can’t take credit for this one, as that all goes to SARK. But if it even made a small change, I’d be very happy. Mostly I’m working on changing myself.
Great post. I love it. I needed this reminder.
Thanks, Laureen. There’s a fair bit of wisdom in there. 🙂
Hi Michael.. For me, this is definitely awesome and I guess a lot of parents would find value in this list of ways we can really love our kids..
Yeah, we all can stand to have some reminders from time to time, Thalia. Thanks!
Kissing the elephant… it’s not a metaphor, is it? Because if not, I’d be totally terrified to kiss one. 🙂
While one could assign metaphorical meaning to her suggestion concerning “kissing the elephant,” I’m not going to touch that. I believe she literally means kiss an elephant… or do other things you’d not normally consider doing, terrified or not. 🙂
Beautiful, Michael! I love all of these tips for having a joyful and wonderful parenting experience – an experience filled with grace.
Hello, Samantha. I’m honored by your visit to my humble little daddy blog. And thank you so much for the mention in the post linked at the end of your comment above! Have a wonderful week!
