My name is Matthew and I am a stay at home dad.  Like you, I am always searching for helpful answers to new questions, problems or scenarios regarding my son.  I also search for ways to improve myself so that I can be a better father and husband for my family. 

My intention for this blog is to provide you with helpful information covering topics I have encountered while raising my son.  I will also share some thoughts on how I plan to teach my son and prepare him for life events he might experience in the future.  Another topic I will write about is personal growth.  I feel that working on oneself not only makes you a better person, but makes you a better parent and spouse.

I am by no means an expert on any of these topics I am just trying to provide friendly advice from personal experience. So if you are a stay at home dad, a working dad, or any parent looking for friendly advice and helpful tips on parenting, personal growth, or just interested in making yourself a better person this blog will be a great resource for you.

A few personal things about me

I’m a forty something first time father with a 15 month old son and a wonderful wife from a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA.  I was an infantryman in the Army right out of high school but never saw combat. I did however learn the importance of things like discipline, teamwork, and respect. I’m a fan of all pro Pittsburgh sports teams but I don’t care about anything else going on in the leagues.   I enjoy drawing, mountain biking, and tennis and I recently got into archery and woodworking.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you find my blog informative and entertaining.  Please feel free to comment or reach out to me with other topics you would like to read about.
