Whether you're an expecting parent or a brand new papa, priorities change when you think about raising a child. From who you hang out with to what you watch on TV, parenthood reorients your life perhaps more than any other landmark event. If your typical primetime routine of sports and dramas aren't peaking your interest like they used to, it's time to focus your attention on shows that will help you develop parenting tools. Many popular sitcoms on TV have real-world lessons for modern parents.

The Unimportance of Mothers by Jon Holden Galluccio, author of “An American Family”
It turns out I'm not so great at keeping up with this blog. My sweet little bug will be turning three this next month. I love being a father! I do however want to say that I was misinformed. A new born is far easier to take care of then a toddler. This is a great but exhausting stage. I find my days filled with why? why not? mine! Whats that? NO! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!..... what?? haha

It has been over a year since my last blog post. My sweet little bug is now two years old. I love being a parent. I recently went back to work. I've been working three months now....it has been an adjustment for both of us.I'm happy to be back in the work force, I am however struggling with guilt. During the past three months there have been times I've felt that I'm not spending enough time with her. For my own sanity it was and is important for me to go back to work. Especially after a two and a half year hiatus!
Millions of men are putting their reproductive health at risk by balancing their laptops on their knees, experts have warned.

Stonewall has launched this week 'A Guide for Gay Dads', giving gay men practical advice in plain English on how to become a dad.
The guide is the brother publication to Pregnant Pause, released earlier this year. It guides prospective gay dads through all their options including adoption, co-parenting, surrogacy, sperm donation and fostering. It includes a handy glossary and spells out all the recent legal changes in plain English to help demystify the process.
I have a question about what and how to tell the parents of my children's friends about my being gay. Is it necessary to disclose my sexuality or that I have a partner to a child's parents when that child comes for a visit to our home or goes on an outing with us? I don't want to ask my children to keep silent about it because I think that sends the wrong message but I also don't want a 'secret' to keep the other parents from letting our children see each other. Any suggestions?
