The Dad

The reason why I have a blog. Here is where you’ll find a range of things that I’ve encountered and learned during my current profession as a Domestic Engineer.

 

Humpday Update – 5/7/14 – NYC Edition!

Empire State of Mind (feat. Alicia Keys) It’s officially been a month without a food post. If you’re still sticking it out I feel like I should send you a fruit basket or something. But again, it’s not my fault! Unfortunately, I’ve been valuing sleep over blogging. I know, what kind of a blogger am I?! I’m an ashamed one. It’s been crazy around here lately. We’ve been driving up and down the east coast …

The 4th Birthday Cake – Lego Heist

slider

I cannot believe it’s been 4 years since our lives changed. In a way it feels like it should be decades longer, but at the same time it feels like only yesterday Seb came strolling in. This kid is growing up insanely fast and it’s apparent in everything he does. From the things he says, the things he does, and the way he thinks – it all shocks the heck out of both of us. …

Disney Movie Theories Pt. I

Walt_disney_pictures exposed

  I just watched Frozen for the first time the other day. My wife and my oldest had already seen it and ever since then I’ve had this underlining jealously towards them for it, especially after it won all those academy awards. But I’m not going to really talk about how awesome it was, or how great the songs were, or how much I’ve been wanting to watch it again. There are plenty of other …

Shinedown – simple man Oh, hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Wow, about 2 months since my last post. And don’t go acting like you noticed because I know you didn’t! It’s been so long, this post is a couple of days in the making because I honestly forgot how to write. When you don’t even pick up your laptop for 2 months, you’ll find yourself staring at a screen for a while …

Another Introduction

manchefdad

Limp Bizkit – Almost Over Welcome! By now I would hope that you’ve noticed a few new things around here. Let me start by acknowledging the elephant in the room: This is my new home! Thanks to a birthday gift from my mom (thanks mom!) I am now the proud owner of TheManTheChefTheDad.com. This not only means it’s going to be easier to share my address with people, but it also means I’m invested, so …

The 3rd Birthday Cake – Foreign Contaminant

sebs cake

Today, on my son’s Nameday, I’m reminded that 3 years ago I became a Dad. You’d think after 3 years I’d get used to the title, but no, it still makes me step back and reflect. Makes me not only feel blessed, but it also makes me think, “holy crap, I’m someone’s Old Man.” It stings at first because I’m not short on things that make me feel old, but with his current admiration for …

I’m Doing Blogging and I’m… Still Alive

Welcome to my new home! If you’ve read my blog’s Birthday post, you would know this is where I’ll be setting up shop from now on. Go ahead, take a deep breath. Suck in that new blog smell. How do you like it? Does it feel updated compared to the Blogger site? Like I said, I had no problems with Blogger, I just wanted an update. Something different. And after comparing, WordPress looked like it …

So….

After checking out what I’ve done with past posts, I’ve decided to stop including quotes in all my posts. I wanted to keep it going, and I love the inspirational feeling, but I’m just tired of finding a really good one that goes with the topic then lining it up and blah blah blah. Also, I’m going to be a little less uniform with blogger and tumblr. I was trying to keep it mirrored but …
