Hey there, and welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Mark, and I live with my beautiful wife, Tracey, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. A few months ago, we found out that we’re having our first child. Now with this news comes a mix of excitement and nervousness that I’m sure every parent out there experiences.

Will I be a good father?

Will my carefree life be gone for good?

How do I properly change a diaper?

The reality is my life is about to change drastically come Fall 2016, and I’m on a crash course to see to it that I’m as prepared as I can be. My goal from this blog is to document the learnings that I collect over the course of the next few months, which I hope might be of use for other first-time parents out there. Once baby arrives, it will be a weekly update to see how I’m fairing as a first-time Dad. So strap in and get ready for the experience of a lifetime… fatherhood!
