The statute of limitations on this post has expired!
Note the date: This post was originally published in 2007 and is kept here largely for archival purposes. Anything older than three years may contain ideas and opinions for which such a gap of time has likely reshaped, altered, softened, re-jigged, or otherwise changed those ideas and opinions to a state incongruent with my current existence.
I was thumbing through some odd links this morning, and came across an interesting set of articles on parenting and fatherhood. Since it my last non-dad father’s day coming up this weekend — the last in which I’ll be simply a son, and not a dad myself — I thought this might be interesting for some retrospective enjoyment later on…
The basis for this article is basically that you shouldn’t be a stooge around your kids. Do the obvious. Spend some time and energy with them from birth on, and don’t be a selfish bugger. This includes everything from playing, reading, and personal care. I guess it seems pretty obvious from my perspective, here, now, with a completely academic outlook on the subject. I hope I can follow a few of these — if not all — when the opportunity presents itself.
Nothing specific here, but it looks like an interesting site. I signed up for the electronic newsletter (which is apparently tailored to the age of the baby for specific advice and information).
In that same spirit, I could tell you all about the tonnes of photos I added to the gallery this weekend, but I’ll highlight one in particular (in theme with this entry):
I added the album above (along with a whole bunch more) to highlight the ongoing nursery-building efforts. I’ll keep it chronological and up to date as we paint and decorate. If that isn’t interesting for you, there are also photos from Chris and Brad’s Crazy Henday Walk (Chris also took some slick pics), Updates to the Summer 2007 Gallery, and that whopping collection of Recovered Images that I stumbled upon online after Googling myself on Friday afternoon.
