Dadurday #8: Jays Game with the Boys

By on September 24, 2016

This week marks the first Dadurday your Mom and I have spent apart, as she went to Buffalo for the weekend with a couple friends (one of whom, Kim, is also pregnant and due in January). The primary reason given for the trip was to do some shopping, but the numerous treats your Mom came…

Dadurday #7: The Kick

By on September 17, 2016

I’m not going to lie, I’ve been feeling a bit left out.

For a while now, your Mom’s been talking about all the movements going on in her tummy, but I could never get my hand on there in time to feel the apparent kicks. According to what I’d read — and…

Dadurday #6: We’re Cookin’!

By on September 10, 2016

While we still have a little over four months until your arrival — and take your time, we need every last second remaining to get prepared — I’ve begun to wonder about what kind of person you’ll be. I’d certainly say that your Mom and I have complimentary personalities, but…

Dadurday #5: Labour Day Weekend with the Morrisons

By on September 5, 2016

With the Morrisons in town, and baby shopping now out of the way, your Mom and I went out to Niagara-on-the-Lake with both sets of grandparents-to-be for the remainder of the weekend. We went on a couple winery tours and to a Bahamas concert, and the men went golfing on…

Dadurday #4: A Day Late (Sonday?)

By on August 28, 2016

While this won’t happen often, I’m unfortunately cheating a bit and coming to you a day late this week — yesterday I had my slo-pitch playoffs, which consisted of four games and us losing in the championship (for the second year in a row, to the same team). I…

Dadurday #3: Saying Goodbye to Gord

By on August 20, 2016

I’m not sure how much you’ll know about The Tragically Hip — hopefully we have most albums on vinyl by the time you read this, and they’re still getting some rotation — but tonight was a pretty sad night for Canadians, and you can be sure what most were…

Dadurday #2: Back in T.O.

By on August 13, 2016

It’s week two of Dadurday, and we’re once again coming to you from Toronto. Spending back-to-back weekends in T.O. wasn’t so out of the ordinary back when your grandpa had the condo downtown, but since he retired last August, and we have nowhere to stay (at least for free),…

Dadurday #1: Your First Concert

By on August 6, 2016

We’re back from the Sturgill Simpson concert, and it might have been a bit of a traumatic experience for you. The vocals were way too loud, to the point where it was difficult to even make out the lyrics, and despite doing plenty of research on concert-going while pregnant (consensus…

At the time of starting this blog, I am a 32-year-old teacher, husband and (very excited) father-to-be. Each Saturday, I will be posting a picture and brief video chronicling our lives together as a family, along with writing about our various adventures and my experiences of fatherhood whenever inspiration strikes.
