This is the story of a man who, fourteen months ago, became a dad (yes, that would be me). This may sometimes sound like fiction, but it’s not. Honestly, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. I’m completely new to the world of parenthood. Hell, up until the baby showers, yes I said showers, words like Boppy, passy (the life saver that is the pacifier), Madela, and Boogie Wipes didn’t belong to my vocabulary. I’m not touching the whole topic on breastfeeding either.

For someone who likes to know where I’m going, I’ve never felt more lost than changing a diaper at 2 am. Especially when one eye refuses to open out of principle that I’m supposed to be sleeping. One thing is for sure, I wouldn’t change a thing. If you have kids, you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you should try it someday.

One morning I awoke to some interesting sounds coming from my son. Those cute, cooing noises quickly turned into screams for his bottle. It was at that moment, I decided to start this blog. I have no idea where this is going to go. I just know I need to write. We’ll see what this blog evolves into, as I evolve through fatherhood.

Update: I’m implementing a posting schedule here on The Evolving Dad. Since content is king, please expect a post every Wednesday and Sunday mornings.

Please feel free to comment and share your own stories. I would love to hear them. And I’m always open to advice. If you would like, come evolve with me and follow my blog.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy.

Vince, The Evolving Dad

    • Yes, there have been some moments where I’ve paused to remember what like was like. In the end however, life is about change and in this, I’m very glad for the change.

  1. Vince, Welcome to fatherhood! I’ve been at it for nearly a decade now, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. In fact, I quit teaching so I could be a stay-at-home dad (my wife earns more than I ever did anyway.) My basic bit of advice, take lots of pictures and always try to live in the moment. It goes VERY fast. I remember giving my nine-year old his first bath at home when he was just four days old. Now he plays Nintendo, is in Cub Scouts and loves archery.
    I’ll be looking forward to what you have to say in your new blog.

  2. Hi Evolving Dad! I was recently nominated by a fellow blogger for the Reality Blog Award. I’m still new to blogging, so wasn’t quite sure what this was about, or how others feel about these types of nominations. But one of the parameters of the award is that I need to nominate blog authors whom I think deserve recognition and praise. You are certainly one of those authors. I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog, and have nominated you. You can check it out here: http://undeaddad.com/2013/01/10/the-reality-blog-award/

  3. “Especially when one eye refuses to open out of principle that I’m supposed to be sleeping.” – So THAT’S the reason! lol I always wondered why one eye wouldn’t cooperate in the middle of the night!
    Congratulations to you and your wife, btw! 😀
