Welcome to our first ever Wednesday's Trendsday post

First off…Happy Birthday to the first person who ever called me “Dad”.  Our princess is 16 today!  I will talk more about our relationship as time goes on in this site, but please allow a brief history. She was eight when I became her “dad”.  That was not easy for her, but from the day her mom and I were married she called me “Dad” (lately it has often been, “Daddy” in a funny, airy, British accent!).  So, happy birthday kiddo, I am so very proud of the young woman you have become.

Secondly, if you've come over here from A-to-Z or Tossing it Out, look at yesterday's post please!

Wednesdays are Trendsdays here at Dads UnLimited.  Consider the clever (pseudo) rhyming scheme there-  T.S. Eliot, watch your back… 

Some of the many topics we will cover here will be things like homework, movies, gaming, technology, attitudes, new toys and gadgets…anything that affects our children’s lives and how we as dads can help them through it. 

If you read these words and have anything to offer in regard to this topic, whether you’d be interested in guest posting, or just throwing out a suggested topic, please leave a comment here.  Don’t be shy, the internet can’t bite but you have to face this reality -your words are out there for many to read, so have a little restraint!  One of the themes this blog will uphold is that you are a dad 24 hours a day, even when commenting online, type something your child would be proud to read someday.

Congratulations on your new blog and more imoportantly on veing a dad for 16 years, My late husband loved being a dad to our three, and yes, being a parent is a full time job even when they're married with children of their own..
Looking forward to the A to Z.

Happy Birthday to your princess!

They grow up so quickly. It's hard for me to believe that my youngest will soon be 22 and has a little girl of her own.
