Stay at home Dad says Hello
Posted 30 March 2012 - 08:17 PM
I'm 28 years old, and have been happily married for 3 years. My wife and I have a healthy happy 5 month old son who has turned me from a bookish computer nerd into a full time child caregiver and never has a better thing happend to me.
My wife works full time as well as takes the bus to and from Work. We are working on getting a car, and have had one previously before it died over a year ago. Until then shes gone for a very healthy chunk of the day, and I swear having no one but my baby and dog to talk to has made me wish the warm weather would come sooner!
During an internet search for a good day center for me to go and hangout with other parents, we found this website. So here I am, Hoping to add to the chatter of the site and hopefully make some friends for coffee or walking.
I have a super friendly German Shepard runt who is perfect for kids, the most gentle dog I have ever owned. I also enjoy spending the warm months gardening, and had quite a successful crop last year. Can't wait for it to get warm so I can put the boy under an umbrella and show him how to work in the dirt.
Feel free to private message me if you would like to meet us!
Thanks again, glad to be around!
Ken and Alaina

Its nice to have another dad on the boards. I am also a gardener and also have a dog..he's a beagle/basset. I hope you can find the information you were looking for. Also hope you like the mom2mom boards...there are some really great ladies (a few men too) on here and some great information and support. Be sure to check out the stay at home mom forum...lots of information in there for us stay at home's.

We took a look at the schedule for St. Marys and I think I'll be calling on Monday.
I already spoke with the people at the Droullard Place early years center, as it is the closest one to my house.
I live in Windsor in the Wyandotte / Pillette area.

I have been blessed to make many friendships that I treasure, received valuable help with my boys, and have had my sanity saved. Although for the sanity, I don't think I had a lot to begin with but what little I have these wonderful people have helped me keep.
Just in case you didn't know - - there is an upcoming Mom2Mom Sale aka Kid's Indoor Garage Sale on April 14th at the WFCU Centre. There is also a Kids' Expo and another Mom2Mom Sale, but I don't have those dates off the top of my head. I will find the links and past them here for you.
Again - Welcome

I'm hoping to meet some fellow parents at the early years center, I'm hoping to get my son together with other babies, as there is none currently in the family and he hasn't had a chance to socialize with anyone but the family.
I take him to the park when it is warm, and we walk to the corner restaurant a couple times a week, but I really need to find a friend with a kid around my kids age to hang out with during the day.
