I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Chris, better known as Dad of Divas.
As a father I am challenged daily and continually am learning about myself, as well as about patience, remaining calm in all situations and staying strong even through challenging situations.
About 2.5 years ago I started my blog (Dad of Divas) to talk about the experiences that I was having as a father as well as provide my thoughts on products and such with people that would be interested. Since then, my blog has continued to grow and I am tying new things and expanding into new horizons each day.
I was excited about getting asked to be a part of the DadRevolution as in the past 2.5 years since I started blogging I have become more and more amazed at the great examples of fatherhood that are out there! Too many times you hear the horror stories of fatherhood and not the ones that make a difference, and I hope that I can shed some light on one father who is just trying to do that…make a difference in my own girls’ lives.
I believe that fathers should have a voice that companies should want to hear. As you will come to hear from some of the other Revolutionaries, being a Stay-at-Home Dad (SAHD) is becoming more and more common and as fathers we too are buying and making decisions for the household, but many companies only cater certain decisions to us, and many times these decisions fall into the purchasing of alcoholic beverages and electronics. This needs to change!
I also believe that it is time for Dads to stand up and let people know what makes us tick. It is not always the media portrayed picture of the beer drinking, sports loving, woman lusting man, but instead, men who are doing what they can to balance their lives and to be engaged with their families in all types of ways.
It is time for guys to stand up and say enough is enough and to let the world hear that as fathers we are planning to make a difference in not only our childrens’ lives but in the community and world around us!
