I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

I've been slacking on this thing for quite awhile now - everytime I head to the library (AKA stall #1) at work, I think about five different things that I could talk about, but never quite get around to it.  Today will be a quick one.  I know a 36 year old man has no right to be on Facebook (and addicted to playing texas hold 'em with imaginary money against 14 year old kids in India), but let's just put that aside for a moment and allow me to make a small commentary on something that bugs the crap out of me.  I admit that I have quit Facebook a couple of times because I think its so ridiculous, only to be pulled back in by curiosity and boredom.  The "Status" option on Facebook there is to enter funny, interesting, exciting updates about what's going in in your life or editorials about the times.  If you think for one second that people give a crap that you are "going to bed" or "at work" -- Think again -- Maybe its dumb for me to put oneliners in my status in an attempt to crack a smile on my acquaintences faces, but everytime I see that someone took the time to write that they are at work, makes me want to go down to their work and break the fry machine.  And another thing -- if your life is so boring that you need to spend it taking quizzes determining "what 80's love ballad best describes you" or "what color are you?" -- don't post it for everyone to see -- I don't care.  I look at Facebook to passively keep "in the know" on what's going with people that I know not too see that you're "Sister Christian" or the color "Orange"
