A Brief Blog Profile: The Busy Dad Blog
by Thomas Hynes
As you might imagine, The Busy Dad Blog is written with the tone of a man who doesn't have all the time in the world. He also doesn't have as much time as he once did to drink pitchers, or train for muay thai fighting, or play his guitar. But that's what happens, right? Both priorities and diapers need to be changed. Definitions of happiness expand. And for better or worse, free time evaporates.
The Busy Dad Blog is run by Jim. But the cast includes his wife, their son and daughter, as well as their two dogs. The site describes itself as "a look at parenting through testosterone-tinted beer goggles." But, let's be clear, this guy adores his kids. If you want proof, check out this birthday post dedicated to his son. If you're short on time (get it?), just look to the picture of Jim as Han Solo to his son's Luke Skywalker.
This guy is also a pretty good cook. This post on his Fried Rice Manifesto makes me wonder if I should have included him last week in my food blogs roundup. And this post on how TV's Dexter would make a turkey makes think he's probably got a great sense of humor. Still, this is about the kids. This site is about being a good dad. And as evidenced from this post on making a dry ice 'bomb', he's also a pretty fun dad, too.
