How to Get Pregnant... How We Prepared

How to Get Pregnant. How We Prepared: There are many things you’ll have to ask yourself and to prepare for before you will be ready to get pregnant, even if you can get pregnant at any time (I’m speaking as a couple here).

(The pregnancy and the child will provide a lot of stressful situations, you have to be solid here) Are your finances in order? (Yes people get by in many situations but do you want or need […]

Coming Home From the Hospital

Coming Home From the Hospital… Something amazing and NERVE RACKING!!!! So you have had your baby and have been in the hospital for a couple days if you had a vaginal birth or perhaps a few extra days if you had a cesarean section.

My wife handles this feeding then […]

This was a fun Music group of about 8 parents and their children, which ranged in age from a few months to about four years old. I arrived late, as I hadn’t checked the directions out ahead of time. The meetup was held in the clubhouse of an apartment complex, which was rather nice I might add. There was ample room for all of the parents and kids to sit in a big semi-circle […]

Welcome to Being the Best Dad, a blog from a new stay-at-home Dad, me! Hi there! My name is Dave and yes I am new to this stay-at-home Dad thing, but being at home has already been one of the best things I have done with my life! I don’t proclaim to be the best Dad, but my hope is that by putting some critical thought into how I’ve interacted with my son and how I would share what I’ve learned, that I will be the best Dad that I can be. My goal is to fill this blog with […]
