This is my website about the podcast I do about my son. I was lucky enough to get a kid who is both willful and kind.

Podcast: Bonding with our children

I grew up kind of jealous of friends who had a “thing” they always did with their dads. A sort of family bonding that sons and fathers can share for generations.

Sports seems like an obvious one. So does just kind of hanging out and talking about whatever is going on that moment in our life. One thing is for sure. I really love spending time with the kid and getting to learn about the kind of person he’s growing into.
