Hello and welcome! I am Daddy Brown and this is my blog. I’m still not entirely sure why I’ve decided to take up blogging, but hopefully someone out there will find this blog interesting and/or useful and/or worthy of repeat visits just to make fun of me.
I guess more than anything this blog will document my transition from non-daddy to daddy, all-the-while tracking the development of our cute little “Baby Brown.”
As for the name of the blog, I don’t wish to be misleading. While I am a happy, practicing Latter-Day Saint, this blog will definitely deal more with the “Daddy” side of things. I will occasionally touch on Mormon subjects, but more than anything I threw the “Mormon” into MormonDaddy because I think that it says alot about my situation and who I am. For example, I’m pretty young by most standards. I’ll be 25 when my baby is born (I know, that’s OLD by Mormon standards!). Most of the daddy blogs that I read are written by men that are well into their 30’s. I’m also poor! I’m a little more than half way through college, and we struggle like most poor college families. I can’t help but cringe when I read the other daddy blogs and read about this $1000 stroller or that $3000 crib. I hope to be able to offer a different side of the spectrum here on MormonDaddy. We are starting this parenting thing off on an extremely tight budget and you will notice that most of the products I review here will reflect just that. I love luxury as much as the next guy… but I gotta get the most bang for my buck!
Besides me, you’ll probably be hearing alot about Mommy Brown, Dora the dog, and of course, our unborn baby!
Speaking of Baby Brown, Mommy is 16 weeks along, and today we have an appointment to find out the sex of the baby. Once the sex is determined, we will decide on a name (if we can agree on one!) and I will then start to refer to Baby Brown by name.
I will update tomorrow and let you know we we find out!!!
