About

The Rookie DadI am Brandon, The Rookie Dad.

I became a father (a rookie dad if you will) in late 2010 and have been writing about it since. I take a deeper look about what a dad is feeling in a particular moment. I am a working father who is trying to do what I can to provide for my family. I realize that I won’t be the best parent in the world, but I can’t keep from trying right?

I am the father of 2 boys who will argue, fight, bicker, and still be best friends despite their five-year age gap. It is all be uncharted territory.

Am I Still The Rookie Dad?

The birth of our second child has brought forth the question, when will the Rookie Dad change his rookie status? Well, it won’t. I believe that there is not a thing as a parenting pro and that with each passing day there are new challenges to be had, new lessons to be learned, and a new pot of coffee drink. That sounds almost like a tagline from somewhere!

The Rookie DadNot only do I not believe in those so-called parenting experts but my second child brings with it new challenges, new lessons, and more pots of coffee (see what I did there? again… yeah I know it’s starting to get old).

But you know what? It’s all worth it… because I am a dad. A Rookie Dad at that! A Rookie Dad from Kansas City… if that has any value in this conversation.

As The Rookie Dad, I enjoy writing stories from the heart. Stories that get told from the dad perspective… a rookie dad’s perspective. I also like providing tips and tricks that I have learned as a parent. I mean, what would a rookie dad be without learning something now and then right?

In my off time, I enjoy reading a good book, watching sports, and spending time in the great outdoors.  Not only do I write about parenting, but I also write about fitness, travel, and sports.
