I like reading blogs where the author speaks from the heart. Whether it’s on a serious matter or the humor found in a situation, this New Blog Of The Week (NBOTW) does just that.
When I landed his post titled: “Your Toddler Is Full Of Crap”, I found myself laughing out load. Here’s an excerpt:
Toddlers are full of crap… and pee, snot and earwax. In short, where there’s a hole, there will be leaks. No matter how clean you keep your child, and I would recommend bathing them at least once per hour, you must be vigilant in keeping the major orifices clean – especially when you’re going Out In Public. It only takes seconds for a child’s nostrils to fill up with enough bright green snot to make it look to all the world as if you’re the Worst Mother (or Father) in the World! So, you’ll want to be sure to ALWAYS carry a steady supply of tissue, wipes, and industrial strength cleaning supplies such as those used by crime scene cleaners (hazmat suit optional).
This blogger’s sense of humor continues with his post titled: “I Used To Be Cool”. Any parent can identify with this post, and for those who aren’t parents yet, be forewarned. This will happen. As he puts it:
My indoctrination to the stylings of the friendly singing vegetables with a wholesome Christian message came via my 16 month old son, who absolutely loves listening to their CD in the car. Try as I might to avoid it, over time, the songs GOT INTO MY HEAD!
Many of his stories touch my heart. In part one of “Staring Into The Future With Fingers Crossed” he writes about observing his son from a distance. His raw truthfulness jumped from the page, when he wrote:
It occurred to me at that moment how incredibly vulnerable he was. Just standing there, all by himself, in a sea of chaos. And while I was standing nearby, watching over him in case he fell or some jerky kid knocked him down, I realized for the first time that I will not always be there to watch over and protect him
And all at once, my heart broke. I wanted to run over and scoop him up and hug him.
Even before this author interviewed me, I was following his blog. I knew it would end up in the NBOTW Hall of Fame, but I just didn’t know when.
The time is now, and the blog is “Blogger Dad”.
He is not only a blogger, but a journalist, a writer, a cartoonist, and a frequent visitor here at BWAB.
Join me in re-welcoming Blogger Dad.
Enjoy your reign, Blogger Dad!
