Back On The Roof!

With Baby "X" on the way in just about two months, it is hustle season!  

Yesterday, I jumped back on the roof with Louie (step-dad) who know the trials and tribulations of being a dad.  He is absolutely awesome and has always found the time to section off parts of his side work for me to swing a hammer and make a few extra bucks.  

Roofing is actually a lot of back-breaking fun.  It is a nice switch from a day of mental labor to a day of physical.  It shows you what the body is capable of, and how strong you really are.  Most importantly, it pulls in a few more dollars, and reminds you that you will do anything for your family.  

I'm so happy to be back on the roof in my off-time, and it looks like I will be pulling out the Ol' 32-Foot Extension Ladder more and more as we move forward with parenthood!

Keep Kids Safe

In the spirit of shameless self-promotion, this post is about a new undertaking by me and Nicole to help parents keep their kids safe.  Enter

Baby Proofing Daddy does two things:

1. Home Inspections - According to the U.S. National Institutes for Health, "Accidents are, by far, the leading cause of death in children."  Yikes!  Baby Proofing Daddy conducts a $75 Home Inspection and gives you an evaluation, recommendations, a free guide to home child safety and a free quote for supplies and installation.

2.  If you choose to install the safety devices yourself, congrats!  You just decreased your child's risk of injury and death.  If not, the second service of Baby Proofing Daddy is Supplies and Expert Installation.  

We are all busy and as parents we over look details constantly.  Our child's safety is top-priority and a second set of eyes is priceless.

Also, the blog linked to the site, the twitter feed and the Facebook page will maintain updates of recalled products, tips suggestions and child safety information.
