In the beginning...

Here we are.  How did we get here?  My wife and I began to discuss how I was behaving when I arrived home from work.  I didn't like who I was at home, and I wanted desperately to quit my job make a change.  You see, I worked in retail, and my work week would easily require 60+ hours, and above that, I lived 45 minutes away from my store.  I was sometimes away from my home nearly 70 hours per week.  As anyone with a family knows, this is not a recipe for success.

In our discussion of how to improve our family and get more quality time together, we came to the realization that it would not involve me staying at my retail job.  So, my wife got an offer for a full-time job, and it was enough of an offer for us to make the change.  She would do the 9 to 5 and I would be a stay at home dad (SAHD) to our one year old daughter.

What I will do on this site:

- Tell you stories about my daily happenings with my daughter
- Tell you about anything I think is cool for people who might be interested in the stay at home dad thing
- Rant and rave about pretty much anything that happens while watching a child

What I will not do on this site:

- Post pictures (for privacy)
- Keep in contact with you (we have Facebook for that)
- The Hokey Pokey

So, yeah... here we go!  I look forward keeping you in the loop about my SAHDness and hopefully, you have fun being jealous reading.
