I would like to start off by apologizing for the lengthy delay since my last blog. The good news is that the reason for my absence was because I have been busy being a father! Not only parenting my daughter but also going to work, taking care of the house, purchasing groceries, paying bills blah, blah, blah. But that is what being a parent is all about; balancing and sharing the workload with all the different aspects of life.
I was fortunate to have some vacation time off from work also. Whoever says that there is not much to do in this County is sadly misinformed. There are many things to include yourself in whether you have children or not! I partook in many events with my daughter and was also able to attend social events with friends. My time off was very well balanced and fulfilling and I feel recharged.
I’m very happy to say that I have really noticed a large amount of fathers out there spending quality time with their kids/families! Whether I saw them at one of the community events, play parks, grocery store or even just in pictures on Facebook it is absolutely awesome to witness! Before you know it summer will be over and some of the kids will be back to school and this extra time is no longer around. There is nothing better than making memories with family and being the dad that every kid deserves.
Being a parent is a truly a gift but obviously comes with great responsibility. From what I have observed from my brief time being a father is that the majority of dads understand this and are doing everything in their power to be the best they can be. Every time I see this, it inspires me and motivates me to do the same. Life is not over because you became a parent… it’s actually just beginning!
Rockin’ tip of the day: In sticking with the theme of community events, take a trip out to Kingsville if you can on Friday, August 12th for the Kingsville Night Market Event and see my good friends Area 51 rocking out as only they can do! Check out there Facebook page for all their upcoming events.
