I 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 at 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.
I enjoy coaching my kid’s sports team and teaching them the life lessons that come along with stepping back into the batter’s box each and every at-bat.
I’m also a big fan of traveling with my family. There isn’t a day that goes by that we aren’t dreaming up our next family road trip.
A recent passion of mine has become coffee! Recent is relative in this because my relationship with coffee started when my wife and I started dating but recently I have started to take more care in how I brew it and the various beans and blends that I am making. One of my favorite parts of my day is when I can wind down in the evening with a nice cup of coffee.
I am a dad from Kansas City… if that has any value in this conversation. I also have had a love–hate relationship with the Kansas City Royals over the past years, but they are still my hometown team and I’ll root for them through thick and thin.
As The Rookie Dad, I enjoy writing stories from the heart. Stories that get told from the dad’s 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?
