I was nominated to answer a few questions about who I am and why I blog. As I’m always up for a challenge, here we go! How long have you been blogging and why did you start? Dadrites has officially been on the go for just over a year, before that it was called I’m […]

  This segment of Dadrites doesn’t really need much writing to accompany it, the pictures should be enough. It is a simple list of some cheap and fun ideas for things to do with the kids.

Dad Rites of Passage # 2 – Pregnancy

As I alluded to in the inaugural Dad Rites of Passage post, # 1 Conception, there often isn’t a whole lot a man has to do at the start of the journey… and many ‘fathers’ don’t do a damn thing. Some dads, sadly, will never know the all-consuming terror and excitement of being with your […]
