Who am I?
My name is Chris, I am a born and raised Alberta (Canada) boy. During the day I work for a telecommunications company looking after the design and planning for various projects in our region, by night I am an avid blogger trying to claim my mark on the monster known as the internet.
In 2008 I married my beautiful wife Amber. Like a cheesy chick flick, Amber and I have known each other since we were 10 years old, grew up together, and eventually began dating in high school. Not many people can say they married their high school sweetheart, let alone their childhood friend.
While honeymooning in Cuba we found that we were bringing home a unique souvenir, Amber was pregnant. On August 27, 2009 our daughter ‘Baby A’ was born. Weighing in at 7 pounds 3 ounces, this little girl enriched our lives more than one could ever imagine. Being the first grandchild, and great grandchild for each family Baby A is defiantly spoiled rotten. She is the source of inspiration and motivation for this blog; as a new dad there is no shortage of things to blog about!
I am as new as they come. Before Baby A was born, I never held a baby, or fed one, or change one… you get the idea. I began to search online for dad blogs in hopes of finding parenting advice from a fathers perspective.While there are many great dad blogs out there, mom blogs dominate the area by far.
With Baby A as my inspiration and motivation, I decided to start cleverfather.com to help out dads who are looking for parenting tips. My goal is to create a resource for fathers filled with things that I’ve found useful and picked up along the way. Kids do not come with instructions, let cleverfather.com help.
