Daddy Cool

Wednesday, 30 January 2008

There are lots of blogs out there kept by moms who chronicle their lives as mothers (and cooks, cleaners, chauffeurs, police, ministers of home affairs etc). I read [Karen’s](http:www.karencheng.com.au) regularly and thoroughly enjoy her regaling us with her tales of her two rambunctious boys of under five and how she still keeps her individuality—and her marriage—so alive.

But *fathers* blogging? This is new to me. So when I followed the link on Karen’s [latest post](http://www.karencheng.com.au/2008/01/29/blog-loving-metrodad/) to [Metrodad](http://metrodad.typepad.com/) I found myself scrolling through his posts non-stop, poring over his endlessly funny descriptions of his life as a father to a three-year-old in New York (in fact I’m in there now, at 3:30am. Brandon got hungry and I couldn’t get back to sleep myself).

From what and how he writes, I have concluded that he is

* probably the most interesting friend an average joe could have.
* highly attractive—in the non-physical sense. But hey, if [he says](http://metrodad.typepad.com/about.html) that he still skis, plays basketball and tennis at age thirty-five, he’s probably in pretty good shape too. I think it’s critical that fathers take care of their physical wellbeing, if not for their own sakes, then for their children. Especially if your job *and* hobbies keep you desk-bound.
* a well-grounded person, despite all the cynicism and biting remarks.

Plus he’s a stickler for correct English usage. :p Poke around his site. Go daddy bloggers!
